New Video Game Releases in Week 38 of September 18, 2023

Here’s the list of new video game releases in week 38 of September 18, 2023. The most popular video games released this week are: Mortal Kombat 1, Lies of P, Payday 3, Party Animals & Resident Evil 4 Remake: Separate Ways DLC. The least interest in a high-profile name seems to sadly be the average-looking Avatar: The Last Airbender – Quest for Balance.
