Change games to watch out for in October 2022

Welcome to the New Releases column to keep up with Nintendo Blast, where we’ll be announcing some of the games coming out throughout the month. Instead of thinking only about the big highlights, the idea is to also present some smaller headlines that might be overlooked.

The expectation is not to cover every game. The list tends toward my tastes, which usually include JRPGs and Japanese adventure games. Plus, there’s always the possibility of surprises throughout the month.

However, maybe this humble column will help someone plan their month and discover new games. I emphasize that the dates may be changed by the companies, which will affect the accuracy of the information presented here.
