Digital Store Weekly Round-Up (Jan. 25, 2018)
Welcome to RPGamer’s weekly round-up on releases. This column is a reformatting of our previous digital update column, continuing to provide information on recent releases and sales for RPGs across the digital marketplace. We will no longer be providing a full list of games and prices in sales due to the prohibitive time and effort cost required to do so, but will be giving direct links to those sales so readers can easily check out the listings.

- Legrand Legacy (PC via Steam, GOG.com, The Humble Store)
- Lost Sphear (Switch, PS4, PC via Steam)
