first_imgStay on target Sorry, You Can’t Date Keanu Reeves in ‘Cyberpunk 2077”Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form There was once a time when big game releases only happened during the summer. That era has long since past, as evidenced by March’s slew of killer titles. I’m sure most of you are still working your way through all of the great games released in January and February. However, you’re going to want to set some time aside for some of this month’s heavy hitters. You don’t want to be left out of the conversation, do you? If you don’t need to be up-to-date, then you’ll have a lot titles to pick up later on.The Division 2Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: March 15In an era where battle royale games reign supreme, it’s interesting to see looter shooters still doing their thing. The Division 2 certainly has stiff competition from the likes of Fortnite, Apex Legends, and even fellow looter shooter, Anthem. What should help Ubisoft’s title standout is the sheer amount of content available on launch. Not only does it contain a full narrative-driven campaign, but there is a ton of online modes as well. The Division 2 has everything that made the original great, and then some. Hopefully, it’ll find its place in the current multiplayer landscape.Pre-order The Division 2 on AmazonDevil May Cry 5Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: March 08Capcom has done a fantastic job of regaining its standing with gamers this generation. Resident Evil 7, Resident Evil 2, and all of the various collections have all been received well. The next franchise seeing a resurrection is Devil May Cry. With Devil May Cry 5, players can expect a highly challenging hack-n-slasher filled with over-the-top combos and equally outlandish cutscenes. Like Resident Evil 2, this title is both a throwback and a glimpse of the future. It’ll be interesting to see if DMC5 revitalizes the hack-n-slash genre the way the original did back in 2001.Pre-order Devil May Cry 5 on AmazonSekiro: Shadows Die TwicePlatforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: March 22While Devil May Cry 5 is a challenging game, it has nothing on Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. From the creators of the Dark Souls series, Sekiro is tailor-made for masochistic gamers who want to get punished every step of the way. Creator Hidetaka Miyazaki actually said Sekiro is much more difficult than any Souls game. Because of that, this is a title only for the hardest of hardcore gamers. However, we have to give titles like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice respect for delivering a truly challenging experience for those who crave it.Pre-order Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice on AmazonDead or Alive 6Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: March 01The fighting game genre has had a great resurgence this past generation so it’s no surprise to see Dead or Alive make a return. Like previous installments, players can expect Dead or Alive 6 to contain tight fighting mechanics with state-of-the art graphics. There will also be a deeper story this time around. Outlandish DLC prices aside, Dead or Alive 6 looks like a solid game for the FGC crowd. Expect to see it get a lot of airtime during fighting game tournaments this summer.Buy Dead or Alive 6 on AmazonLeft AlivePlatforms: PC, PS4Release date: March 05Let’s be honest, the main reason people are talking about Square-Enix’s Left Alive is because of its association with long-time Metal Gear Solid artist, Yoji Shinkawa. Due to that, and the game’s stealth-based gameplay, many see this as a spiritual successor to Metal Gear Solid. This assumption is interesting considering how Left Alive is in actuality a Front Mission spin-off. We’ll see whether or not Left Alive will deliver the goods. Either way, it’s sure to stir up some interesting conversations in the gaming community.Buy Left Alive on AmazonToejam & Earl: Back In The GroovePlatforms: Linux, MacOS, Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: March 01Though I’m an old-school Sega Genesis fan, I have to admit I’ve never understood the appeal of Toejam & Earl. I now know it’s roguelike-ish, but back in the day, I couldn’t make sense of it. Despite all of that, I’m glad to see the franchise return in the form of Toejam & Earl: Back in the Groove. It’s always nice when a crowdfunded game actually gets released. If you’re a fan of the originals, this one is worth checking out. Hell, I may give it a shot myself. Maybe I’ll actually like Toejam & Earl as an adult.Buy Toejam & Earl: Back In The Groove on SteamOne Piece: World SeekerPlatforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneRelease date: March 15One Piece: World Seeker distinguishes itself from past One Piece titles by offering players a giant open-world to traverse. Considering the manga and anime’s emphasis on exploration and discovery, it’s surprising the games haven’t gone open-world until now. While there is plenty of combat, World Seeker also tosses in some stealth gameplay. If you’re not familiar with One Piece, this game is likely not for you. If you’re a fan, then you probably already have One Piece: World Seeker pre-ordered.Pre-order One Piece: World Seeker on AmazonYoshi’s Crafted WorldPlatform: Nintendo SwitchRelease date: March 29If you’re looking for the gaming equivalent of comfort food, Yoshi’s Crafted World is for you.
