This week we’re doing something unprecedented, we’re picking a handheld game for our pick of the week. Suikoden Tierkreis was singlehandedly picked by almost every editor due to the quality that Konami put into it. The graphics are gorgeous, the cutscenes are epic, the battle system is perfect (including an Auto Battle option), and the story will make sure this title is worth the money spent on it.

Well see you all next week with more picks and the full list of games coming out. See you there.
