Weekly Game Release Highlights, May 14-20 2017

PC players are done quite an injustice on this week's game release highlights.

This week's video game releases are highlighted by the multiplatform launches of Injustice 2 and The Surge. Sadly, we have received no word on an Injustice 2 PC release date. Thumper makes its Nintendo Switch debut this week and Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia releases on 3DS this Friday. Get your wallets ready, Shackers.
