There are a lot of great games coming out nowadays: so much so, in fact, that even us diehard RPG fans can have a hard time keeping up. Well, never let it be said that RPGFan wasn't dedicated to keeping you up to speed: we're going to be giving you the rundown of the hottest new releases coming this week. So grab your detective caps and superhero capes, it's time for Coming This Week with RPGFan.

Earthlock - PS4 (March 20th)

We get a lot of retro throwback RPGs nowadays, but how many of them are from Norway? An extended rerelease of last year's Earthlock: Festival of Magic, this game is a charming RPG inspired by the classics of yore. Tomorrow (as of this writing), you'll be able to dive in on your PlayStation 4.

Titan Quest - PS4, XB1 (March 20th)

Who remembers Titan Quest? This awesome Greek Mythology-inspired hack and slash is making a comeback courtesy of THQ Nordic. It's also coming to Switch at some point, too!

Detective Pikachu - 3DS (March 23rd)

No, there's no Danny Devito, but still: Detective Pikachu might be one of the most interesting Pokémon spinoffs to date. Solve mysteries around the city involving various Pokémon, and maybe even find out what Mewtwo has to do with it all.

Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom - PS4, PC (March 23rd)

This is it, Marty! The original Ni no Kuni was one of the most anticipated RPGs of the last generation, but it fell well short of many expectations. Still, a Studio Ghibli-styled RPG remains a tantalizing prospect, so Level-5 is giving it another shot (even if the legendary anime studio is not involved with this one). Ni no Kuni II drops this week, and we'll have more to say on this one. If you haven't read it yet, check out Caitlin's hands-on preview in the meantime.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole - From Dusk Till Casa Bonita DLC - PS4, XB1, PC (March 20th)

Last, but not least: South Park DLC! For those looking for more zany antics, From Dusk Till Casa Bonita offers a bunch of new additions to the latest South Park RPG, with a new story campaign, the superhero "Netherborn" class, and new Goth costumes.
