Summer Game Fest 2024 Best Announcements for Steam Deck – TouchArcade

Following my Nintendo Switch news round-up for the last few days of gaming events, here are my picks for the best Summer Game Fest 2024 announcements (and other events happening) for Steam Deck and PC. I say “and PC” as well because I’m not sure if every game here will play fine on Steam Deck. If announcements involve a single publisher, I’ve clubbed them together as well so I can feature a few more reveals here. As usual, this list is in no particular order.

Fallen Aces Episode 1 launches this Friday (for real)

Back when I wrote about the best boomer shooters on Steam Deck, I featured many New Blood games. For the second article I’m working on, I thought I’d wait for Fallen Aces to hit early access on Steam. During the PC Gaming Show 2024, we finally had a date for Fallen Aces Episode 1, and it is out this Friday. Watch the trailer below:

Nightdive announces Killing Time: Resurrected and The Thing: Remastered

Nightdive Studios announced Killing Time: Resurrected and The Thing: Remastered for Steam and other platforms including consoles. Both are due this year, and Nightdive Studios is so good at these remasters that I’m willing to buy just about anything to support the team. Killing Time debuted in 1995 while The Thing debuted in 2002. I can’t wait to play the remasters. Watch the trailers below:

Monster Hunter Wilds Crossplay, Street fighter 6 Year 2, and Kunitsu Gami

Capcom had a trio of announcements and reveals over the last few days. Monster Hunter Wilds had new footage that looks amazing, Street Fighter 6 revealed year 2 with Mai Shiranui, Terry Bogard, and Elena as highlights, and the final reveal was Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess launching on July 19th. I’m so excited for Year 2 of Street Fighter 6 with Mai and Terry joining. Monster Hunter Wilds adding crossplay is a huge deal, but the lack of cross progression is disappointing. Watch the trailers below:

Slitterhead release date and gameplay

Bokeh Game Studio announced that its horror game Slitterhead will launch on November 8th for Steam and consoles. Alongside the date, Xseed Games announced that it will be doing a physical release on console which I’m definitely going to get. Slitterhead’s gameplay looks interesting, but the vibe seems amazing. Watch the trailer below:

Persona 3 Reload Episode Aigis release date, Metaphor gameplay, and SMTV: Vengeance opening

Atlus announced that Persona 3 Reload’s Episode Aigis releases on September 10th for Expansion Pass owners with a new trailer. This is The Answer content from Persona 3 FES. I can’t wait to see how it plays in this remake. Atlus also revealed the opening title loop video for Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, something the series hasn’t had since Nocturne. Metaphor: ReFantazio saw an extended gameplay showcase as well. Watch the videos below:

Annapurna Interactive reveals Mixtape and Wanderstop

Annapurna Interactive had two major reveals during the many showcases of note. Both Mixtape and Wanderstop look excellent, and they are due for Steam and more. Wanderstop is a narrative-centric cozy game about change and tea coming to Steam and PS5 while Mixtape is a mixtape of memories coming to Steam, PS5, and Xbox Game Pass in 2025. Watch both trailers below:

Devolver Direct 2024 announcements: Tenjutsu, Neva, Talos 2 DLC, and more

Devolver Digital’s newest direct had Tenjutsu revealed, Neva getting gameplay, The Talos Principle 2 Road to Elysium DLC, and much more. Watch the whole showcase below:

Black Myth: Wukong release date and pre-orders

Game Science’s action RPG Black Myth: Wukong launches on August 20th for Steam and PS5 worldwide, and it looks like it might be a bit too much for Steam Deck. That will not stop me from trying though. Either way, the new trailer looks great and pre-orders are now live. Watch it below:

The Big Catch set for release in 2025, published by Xseed Games

During the IGN Live Preshow, Xseed Games announced that it is publishing The Big Catch, a 3D platformer inspired 5th and 6th generation console games, via Steam worldwide. It was a Kickstarter game back in 2022, and it is set for release next year with a demo now available. Watch the trailer for it below:

Dragon Ball: Sparking! ZERO release date and pre-orders

Bandai Namco Entertainment announced the DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO release date for October 11th, and also opened pre-orders worldwide. DRAGON BALL: Sparking! ZERO pre-orders include early access to Broly (Super), Gogeta (Super) and more characters. I’m excited to see how this one plays on Steam Deck. Watch the trailer for it below:
