Hey guys, it's Wednesday again which means exactly one thing for iOS gamers: A whole heap of new games. Rocketcat Games' Wayward Souls is leading the charge, as it's easily the most anticipated game we've seen in a while. The thread in our upcoming games forum has been off the chain for quite a while now, crazier yet, it was originally posted all the way back in 2011 not long after the "original" Mage Gauntlet [$2.99] was released.

So, like previous weeks, all of these games will be available at 11:00 PM Eastern, or potentially way earlier if you're in a European or Asian iTunes region. There's one caveat with that though, the games in the list that are soft launched could pop up whenever, potentially even tomorrow.

Here's what's on our radar so far, and of course, new games will likely pop up throughout the day:

Also, just for fun this week I'm going to be doing an early morning stream in addition to our normal streaming time at 4:00 PM Eastern. If you want to watch a quick once over of all these games, check it out on Twitch or watch the archive video below:

(YouTube might be processing this for a while, so if it doesn't work check back in a bit.)

      • Skullinton

        Hey Eli, are you still getting revenue each time someone says it's a boring weak? Or the other guy you made the bet with went bankrupt?

  • CDRwasabi

  • darkprophet2088

  • Donny K76

    Leo's Fortune is the only game for me this week. It was featured at the GDC this year. It will be releasing sometime tomorrow...Definitely will be in new and noteworthy in iTunes.

    • https://twitter.com/ScotDamn Scot Damn

      You forgot Wayward Souls. You will purchase Wayward Souls. It is your destiny.

  • ImJPaul

    I see why they chose to release Wayward this week. Good planning. ;-)

  • lazrhog

    Soccer Rally 2 looks great

  • FivepastTA

    Looking forward to Third Eye Crime.

  • KoRoV

    This is redicolus... Non disent game...

    • NickyNichols

      Wat?

      • Siveon

        "This is ridiculous, no decent games"

        I think.

      • KoRoV

        Yea, thats it :p sorry english is not my native language

    • bcredonk

      Lol this has -1 likes?

      • KoRoV

        Sorry but i grow up with NES, sega (even there ware better games than this), ps 2,3 and pc games. And later when ios came, there ware good quality games, hardware apropriate console like games. This looks to me like trow back on flash-java gameing age (and again even there ware better games than this). We even haved great God of war: Betreyal on java. ios gameing just turned on the wrong side on crosroad. Im not buying this stuffs, thx god that theres still good devs who understand potentials of ios gameing.

      • Zeillusion

        LOL that made my day. Unless, that was a serious paragraph. In which I hope not. Not a single word spelt right.

  • mzinn

    Leo's Fortune is out. Downloading now. Looks brilliant

    • mzinn

      OMG. Leo's fortune is absolutely beautiful. Great sound & fantastic gameplay. This is going to be a huge game.

      • mzinn

        19 levels and another 4 as bonus levels

      • mzinn

        Puzzles are a blast. Seriously. This is exactly why ios games are great. Limbo, Nightsky, Machinarium, Badlands, & Leo's Fortune. These are the best games out there. I cant stop playing this

      • Torque2k

        Paid much? ;)

  • TrencH

    Another great release week. I see about 4-5 of the listed games I want.

  • Alexythimia23

    A bit off topic but i saw a review of games like doom 3 on android last year, and then the nvidia shield which looks awesome too, and it got me thinking how many awesome amazing games that we dont have on ios that really can be done on ios, but it seems not enuff developers care enough to port us something like doom 3 or god of war, so even though wayward souls looks ok, there a dime a dozen on the app store and great games are few and far between, ive played since the start on ios and have all the games possible to where my excitement is wavering :( guess im just on a downer as i really thought games like xcom and kotor were going to kick off loads of amazing ports but it just aint happening, so wish things could be different!

    • KoRoV

      Sad but true :/

  • NOEN

    Double Infinity is out for True Skate.

  • Flare_TM

    Apart from Wayward Souls there's been so much crap these last few weeks, I thought with it being Easter that would be cause for something good but I cant remember the last release I got really excited for.

    P.s. what happened to Chillingo? They used to release a decent game every week but I haven't seen a release from them in a while now.

  • TokyoDan

    I'd rather read a proper review than watch these guys screw around on TV. These guys are getting too lazy to write about games so they play them on Twitch TV

    • http://toucharcade.com Eli Hodapp

      Our review output is higher than it's ever been. Additionally, you realize to review games we need to play them, right? It's not like I press the "write review" button and a timer pops up over my head like upgrading your base in Clash of Clans. These streams are me playing games before reviewing them. It isn't taking any focus away from written content, rather, it's creating content from things I do that people never would see otherwise.

    • Jake7905

      C'mon man, really? The Twitch stuff is more of a preview, a chance to see the gameplay before you buy. And in case you didn't notice, there's a whole section on TA marked as "Reviews". And inside of this magical section you'll find tons of written reviews. So stop trollin'.

    • bcredonk

      I like watching streams because I get to see gameplay and decide if I'll be into a game or not pretty much despite Eli's initial reaction.

      • bcredonk

        Like sometimes he doesn't like a game but it's a genre I'm into and I'll see how it plays, ask about controls and mechanics, and be able to make a better purchase decision

    • TokyoDan

      I'm sorry Hodapp. Good point and you are absolutely right. I woke up in a bad mood this morning and I guess I directed it in the wrong and an undeserved direction via my negative comment. I take that back and I'm very sorry.

      • Torque2k

        Amazeballs... Civility! See, THIS one gets it. Thanks for being an adult. And thanks to Eli for not whipping out the Sword of Sarcasm +3. Nicely played, people. Nicely played.

  • SwithNova

    Finally the wait is over and wayward souls is here I'm so hyped about this particular game that I'm not even paying attention to any of the other releases this comes first to night and I'll worry about everything else later

  • tommet

    And the "Coming Tonight" article is a little light on "article"... Pity.

  • rnarvin

    What ever happened to Bonsai Slice?

    • miroa

      The devs broke their ipad during a last test :-p
