Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (read our review) isn’t the only adorable game we’ve had our eye on this month. An assortment of recently released and equally endearing titles are available on every platform you might own. And the best news is that they’re so good you don’t have to worry about anyone catching you playing them.

Here are three fun ways to get your cute on without anyone laughing at you.

Batman journeys into outer space in new LEGO game


If I had to whittle down what I love about the LEGO Batman games (and really LEGO games in general) it’s that they can go places with their licensed characters that more serious game franchises can’t.

That’s the case with the just-announced Batman 3, which will be making its way to major consoles, handhelds, PC (and hopefully Mac) this fall.

The game will continue on from the events of DC Superheroes. Subtitled “Beyond Gotham” it follows Batman as he goes on a sci-fi-inspired intergalactic adventure, attempting to thwart the villainous plans of Brainiac who aims to destroy Earth by… miniaturizing cities from around the cosmos with the aid of the Lantern Rings.
