October has been a pretty good month for video games, ranging from Destiny 2: Shadowkeep to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. As we get through one holiday into another, November has some highly anticipated games many gamers have been waiting for. Arguably, November has potential top contenders for Game of the Year.

Game developers, including Hideo Kojima and Game Freak, have been waiting for November to roll around for their anticipated games to be released, and you can expect their games to be featured here. Some might not be as anticipated, but they are handled with well-known developers that give them recognition. Here is the list of the ten games coming out in November!

Top 10 Games Coming Out In November 2019

Just Dance

Just Dance 2020

  • Platform: Nintendo Switch, Wii, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Google Stadia
  • Release date: Nov. 5

It is still crazy how the Nintendo Wii is still a console, according to Ubisoft, but if it is just as relevant as a Just Dance game, then it’s probably doing something right. Just Dance 2020 features a massive variety of genres, including K-Pop and R&B. The game features colorful visuals and fun, albeit repetitive choreography, but it can be played at a party with friends and family.

Planet Zoo

Planet Zoo

  • Platform: Microsoft Windows
  • Release date: Nov. 5

As the spiritual successor to Zoo Tycoon, Planet Zoo hopes to achieve the fun and creativity that can take place in this upcoming PC game. The animals will behave as they would in the real world, and you can experience the career of a zookeeper. This game will require a lot of planning, but it makes the game unique for that aspect as if you are taking care of real-life animals. Overall, Planet Zoo will live up to Zoo Tycoon’s legacy.

Sniper Ghost Warrior - Contracts

Sniper: Ghost Warrior – Contracts

  • Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows
  • Release date: Nov. 22

The Sniper series has been a mixed bag, but the developers have been slowly improving and finding their place. Sniper: Ghost Warrior – Contracts could become a sleeper hit if it is critically acclaimed this time around with gameplay that can improve its predecessors’. This time, the game will feature a mission-based gameplay and a "contracts" system, ultimately differentiating itself from Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. Will Contracts end up being a better game? We certainly hope so.

Age of Empires II

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition

  • Platform: Microsoft Windows
  • Release date: Nov. 14

Real-time strategist gamers, this is your time to shine with Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. As a remaster, this game will feature all that has been implemented in the original title, while also adding an entirely new single-player campaign called "The Last Khans" and add four new civilizations. Fans of Age of Empires will want to get this to relive the nostalgia while new players can enjoy what makes this game one of the best in its genre.

Shenmue III

Shenmue III

  • Platform: Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4
  • Release date: Nov. 19

It is hard to believe that after nearly 20 years, Shenmue is back with the third entry in the series. After a successful Kickstarter, this cult series will be back on the 19th. This has been a widely anticipated game, and the story after the second game will finally have a resolution. What is hopeful for this game is that Shenmue III will not be the final game in the series, so if this game does well, there will be more Shenmue!

Need For Speed Heat

Need For Speed Heat

  • Platform: Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
  • Release date: Nov. 8

Need For Speed Heat will be the next entry in the Need For Speed series to celebrate the 25th anniversary. The visuals are one of the best aspects of the series, and so far, it is looking gorgeous. The setting is also riskier, with the player being able to take part in illegal street races at night, and the police will be involved. With some GTA inspirations, Need For Speed Heat might be one of the most exciting titles to pick up.

Mario and Sonic

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

  • Platform: Nintendo Switch
  • Release date: Nov. 8

Mario and Sonic have been competing against each other since 2007’s first Olympics game. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 looks to be the ultimate title for the series. This title features a story mode that will give the game more to do instead of just minigames, and while it won’t be a groundbreaking story, it looks to be fun. With a variety of minigames and giving a nostalgic feel with an additional 2D mode, this is looking to be one of the best Mario sports games to date.

Star Wars

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

  • Platform: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows
  • Release date: Nov. 15

So far, EA has been doing questionable methods in promoting and publishing the new Star Wars games while getting into controversy for unnecessary microtransactions. However, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order looks to be a way for the publisher to redeem itself with a strong premise and amazing concept. So far, we have high hopes for this new Star Wars game.

Death Stranding

Death Stranding

  • Platform: PlayStation 4
  • Release date: Nov. 8

Hideo Kojima illustrates his creative game design in many games from Konami, including his critically acclaimed Metal Gear series. After leaving Konami, he would find his gaming studio and work on one of the highly anticipated games of 2019: Death Stranding. With Walking Dead fame Norman Reedus, Death Stranding is looking to be a cinematic adventure that is will be a possible candidate for Game of the Year.

Pokemon

Pokémon Sword and Shield

  • Platform: Nintendo Switch
  • Release date: Nov. 15

Despite the controversy of not all Pokémon returning, Sword and Shield will still become a hit and aim to be the very best like no Pokémon game ever was. The Galar region has a beautiful abundance of scenery and new creatures and characters to encounter. Unlike the previous games, we know less information, and deservingly so to witness what our starters will evolve into and what other Pokémon have not been revealed yet. Will you be picking up the sword and shield?
