New video games this week:

"Ori and the Blind Forest." With a beautiful trailer that evoked Studio Ghibli animation at last year's Electronic Entertainment Expo, this side-scrolling adventure game with light role-playing elements is a coming-of-age story with, we hope, a lot of magic. Rated E for Everyone. $20 for Xbox One and Windows PC.

"Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.." (Out on Friday) This curious turn-based game for Nintendo's portable consoles mixes aliens and steampunk. Rated T for Teen for Nintendo 3DS.
