Best Upcoming Games of May 2022


Best Upcoming Games of May 2022

Hey guys!. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list of Best Upcoming Games of May 2022. May is upon us, which means we’re almost halfway through 2022! It’s been such a wild ride this year, with so many fantastic games, that we needed April to give us a break! 

Alas, May is the start of yet another season of fun and exciting new adventures, and here are some highlights of what we can expect this month! So let’s get started.

1. Trek to Yomi

We saw Trek to Yomi debut during Sony’s State of Play a few months ago, and the combat looked really smooth and silky! Trek to Yomi has you living out your samurai dreams in a style that’ll remind you of Akira Kurosawa’s films. 

I’ve read that the game’s length is about five hours long, but I’m expecting some of you here to come up with some sick combos! Sometimes the shortest games have some incredible value, after all! Trek to Yomi comes out on May 5th on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X and S, and PC! 

2. Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising

Several of your favorite YouTubers have played through an early version of Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, but for the rest of us, we’ll be able to check it out on May 10th on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X and S, Switch, and PC! For those who don’t know, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is set before the events of Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, from the folks who made Suikoden! 

What makes Rising unique is that it blends action gameplay with town building! I’ve heard so much about how the gameplay loop is one of the most addicting aspects of the game and, quite honestly, this reminds me of my recent time with Actraiser Renaissance, but a more modern take! I’m hoping that the final product lives up to our expectations! 

3. Salt and Sacrifice

I’ve never played Salt & Sanctuary before because, you know, I wasn’t schooled in the way of the Soulsborne back then. So when I saw Salt & Sacrifice arrive in May, it naturally harkened back to the good old days of playing Castlevania on the NES! 

In case you haven’t played, Salt & Sacrifice is a Metroidvania game known for gameplay design that is reminiscent of From Software’s games, which makes it a pretty good follow up to Elden Ring - if you managed to pry yourself away from it, that is! 

The biggest difference this time around is that PvP multiplayer will be a part of this new adventure! I personally don’t care much about that aspect of these sorts of games, but with the right approach, I think it can be an additive rather than a subtractive experience! Salt & Sacrifice releases on May 10th on PS4, PS5, and PC! 

4. Little Witch in the Woods

For folks who love games like Rune Factory and Stardew Valley, Little Witch in the Woods might be right up in your neck of the woods! While not much is known about how it plays and how things work together, I have to say that I quickly fell in love with the game’s art style and aesthetic! 

The developer is a two man team based in Busan, South Korea, so knowing that just impresses me even more! Little Witch in the Woods comes out on May 16th on PC! 

And here are the rest of the games coming out in May! 

Evil Dead: The Game

Evil Dead: The Game is an asymmetrical survival horror multiplayer game, releasing on Friday the 13th, May 13th, on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X and S, Switch, and PC! 

Vampire: The Masquerade Swansong

Vampire: The Masquerade Swansong is a narrative driven single player RPG set in White Wolf’s World of Darkness, releasing on May 19th on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X and S, Switch, and PC! 


Souldiers is a Metroidvania with elements of action adventure and RPGs, also releasing on May 19th for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X and S, Switch, and PC! 

Cotton Fantasy

Cotton Fantasy is a classic side scrolling shooter, releasing on May 20th for PS4 and Switch! 

Touken Ranbu Warriors

Touken Ranbu Warriors is a Dynasty Warriors style action game based on the popular free-to-play browser based collectible card game, releasing on May 24th on the Switch! 

Pac-Man Museum+

Pac-Man Museum+, a fresh new collection that spices up the classics, releases on May 27th on PC, Switch, PS4, and Xbox One! 

And that, my friends, are the games coming out in May! I personally can’t wait to check out Eiyuden: Chronicles Rising, and I actually didn’t know that Vampire The Masquerade Swansong was an RPG! I was confusing it with the battle royale game!
