The first week of September 2019 will see new PC game releases such as NBA 2K20, Children of Morta, Fantasy General II, River City Girls, and Green Hell. Old classics make their return revamped for the new generation such as Final Fantasy VIII – Remastered and Spyro Reignited Trilogy.

    For the other games that’ll be coming out this September 2019, check out the monthly PC game releases listing. As for the rest of the games launching this year and beyond, you can view our updated release dates list.

    Spyro Reignited Trilogy

    Content Drop Weekly Pc Game Releases Spyro Reignited Final Fantasy 8 Remastered Children Of Morta Nba 2k20

    • Release Date: September 3
    • Developer: Toys for Bob, Iron Galaxy
    • Publisher: Activision
    • Store: Steam

    The Spyro franchise started all the way back in 1998. From humble beginnings as a Sony PlayStation exclusive, more games eventually made their way to other consoles. This week, the original trilogy will head to PCs via Steam.

    The Spyro Reignited Trilogy will contain the first three games in the series: Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. All three Spyro games are part of the bundle and they’d have 4K support, uncapped framerates, enhanced visuals, a remastered soundtrack, and revamped cinematics.

    Final Fantasy VIII – Remastered

    Content Drop Weekly Pc Game Releases Final Fantasy 8 Remastered

    • Release Date: September 3
    • Developer: Square Enix
    • Publisher: Square Enix
    • Store: Steam

    Just like Spyro, another Content Drop that kicks off this week is also another PlayStation classic from the late 90s. Yes, Squall, Rinoa, Zell, Quistis, Edea, Seifer, Laguna, and the gang are all back this time around in Final Fantasy VIII – Remastered.

    Final Fantasy VIII originally released back in 1999 and it has since become quite a fan favorite. Its “Triple Triad” card game alone could let you clock in dozens of hours, all while you’re drawing magic from various enemies and customizing characters via their summons or Guardian Force.

    Final Fantasy VIII – Remastered‘s visual overhauls may be compatible with full HD (1920 x 1080p) displays, but it seems there were no widescreen options that were added. What it does have are new features that can completely change gameplay such as turning off battle encounters, maxing out your health and limit break gauges, speeding up cutscenes, instantly having all abilities, items, and more. It’s like having your own GameShark or the usual trainer or table. Whether this piques your interest is entirely up to you.

    Children of Morta

    Content Drop Weekly Pc Game Releases Children Of Morta Final Fantasy 8 Remastered Spyro Reignited Nba 2k20

    • Release Date: September 3
    • Developer: Dead Mage
    • Publisher: 11 bit Studios
    • Store: Steam

    If remastered versions of old classics don’t interest you, then perhaps Children of Morta might be more to your liking. You play as the Bergson family, the guardians of Mount Morta which is now beset on all sides by evil forces.

    Each family member in Children of Morta has their own unique attacks and you can even allocate points for certain perks. For instance, Lucy is akin to a mage, flinging fireballs from her hands whereas Mark is a monk whose armor increases the more he punches monsters in the face.

    Tim McDonald quite enjoyed it as mentioned in the official review. He’s praised Children of Morta for having “colossally different characters, breathtaking pixel art, and a surprising amount of heart” and that it’s an easy recommendation for any fans of “roguelite” types of games.

    NBA 2K20

    The basketball franchise is back again this year. Were you expecting anything else? This time around, NBA 2K20 brings not just men’s basketball but also women’s basketball to the video game spotlight. For the first time, 12 WNBA teams will be making their way as part of NBA 2K20.

    NBA 2K20‘s MyCareer mode also has you lacing up your shoes, in a storyline that has a star-studded cast that includes Idris Elba and Rosario Dawson. 100 Legendary Teams are also in the game. Some new inclusions are the 2002-03 Phoenix Suns and the 2013-14 San Antonio Spurs.
