Whats on TV: Returnal and Yasuke

    This week we’re getting a true new-gen exclusive game, as Housemarque’s Returnal arrives for the PlayStation 5. Players will become an astronaut fighting to survive on an alien planet and failing, over and over again. It’s supposed to take advantage of the console’s 3D audio effects, so we’ll check that one out once it drops. For a more subdued gaming experience, Pokémon Snap is back with a new version on the Switch.

    On streaming platforms there’s a lot to look forward to. Amazon Prime wraps up the first season of its animated superhero series, Invincible, and premieres a new Tom Clancy flick starring Michael B. Jordan, Without Remorse. Disney+ debuts a new Assembled episode focusing on the making of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, while Netflix has a pair of animated efforts worth trying. 

    First up is Yasuke, the story of a black samurai soldier with voice acting from Lakeith Stanfield and animation from Attack on Titan studio MAPPA. It’s also premiering The Mitchells vs. the Machines, from the team behind Into the Spider-Verse. Look below to check out each day’s highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
