I'd put another in for Castlevania and above that Octopath Traveler to the #1 spot.

Mega Man 11 I'd put high on the list too, and if what I've read about Dead Cells is accurate it deserves listing.

If someone is a fan of the Chrono Trigger combat style engine sequel to I am Setsuna, LOST SPHEAR came out this year and it seemed like people liked that early 2018 entry too.

"Castlevania" = I'm guessing Tanooki meant Bloodstained, lol.

Bloodstained was incredible for sure.

Psyvariar Delta came out, but I haven't played it yet.

On the fighting front, SNK Heroines... is awful. I do not nominate it.

+1 for Bloodstained.

for retro racing i like Slipstream (Steam - May, 2018)

Battle Princess Madelyn coming out later this year (Dec. 20) looks very interesting to me.
