February has been a good month for gaming. Most of the biggest games of February 2023 were a hit among fans and we also saw a surprise game from Microsoft-Bethesda, Hi-Fi Rush, a fun rhythm action game.
Potterheads are having a lot of fun playing Hogwarts Legacy and the monster hunter genre saw a promising addition to its roster with Wild Hearts. The only disappointing release was Wanted: Dead, which I had a lot of hope for.
Well, February was good. Let’s see what March 2023 hold for gamers!
Wo Long: Fallen Destiny
Developed by Team Ninja, the makers of Nioh are back again with another souls-like. This time, it is in China. Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is an action-packed story of a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms.
As a player you fight off deadly creatures and enemy soldiers using swordplay based on the Chinese martial arts, attempting to overcome the odds by awakening the true power from within.
The game resembles Sekiro in storytelling but it doesn’t carry the same weight as in Sekiro when fighting from what gameplay we have seen so far.
Wo Long: Fallen Destiny releases on March 3 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S|X. It will be available on Xbox Game Pass on the first day.
Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon
The Bayonetta series is highly popular and with this game, you will delve into the past and origins of Bayonetta herself when she was called Cereza.
You play as Cereza and Cherise, her very first demon, possessing Cereza’s stuffed toy. You play as both the characters and travel through the treacherous forest of Avalon to find the power to save Cereza’s mother.
The game has really beautiful visuals and the fully narrated story scenes are told through the vibrantly illustrated pages of a storybook.
Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon releases on March 17 for Switch.
Crime Boss: Rockay City
As we wait for GTA VI, which we are hoping comes out while we are alive, we have Crime Boss: Rockay City. Developed by Ingame Studios and published by 505 Games, it stars Michael Madsen, Chuck Norris, Danny Glover, Kim Bassinger, Danny Trejo, and Vanilla Ice.
The game will be a stealth action FPS in which players take on the role of leaders of a criminal underworld in a fictional version of 1990s Florida. You can play solo or with your friends. You play as Travis Baker who has set his eyes on becoming the King of Rockay City.
Crime Boss: Rockay City releases on March 29 for PC, PS5 and Xbox Seris S|X.
The Last of Us Part 1 PC
The highly acclaimed and anticipated PlayStation-exclusive game is finally coming to PC. The Last of US Part 1. It is a narrative-rich, action-adventure game.
In a ravaged civilization, where infected and hardened survivors run rampant, Joel, a weary protagonist, is hired to smuggle 14-year-old Ellie out of a military quarantine zone. However, what starts as a small job soon transforms into a brutal cross-country journey.
Last of Us Part 1 releases on March 28 for PC.
ONI: Road to be the Mightiest Oni
For March, this indie game is the one to look out for. Made by Shueisha Games, it is an action-adventure game in a very unique art style.
The story takes place on Kisejima, a small island in the middle of the ocean. Here, it is said that the power that lies dormant within the local demon spirits can be drawn out by challenging them to trials, where ancient demons who were once defeated by Momotaro are summoned to battle.
The world looks to be beautifully designed and the world is small but looks like it offers a rich experience with its dazzling green meadows, looming forests, and plains of floating megaliths.
ONI: Road to be the Mightiest Oni releases on March 8 for PC.
Resident Evil 4 Remake
Resident Evil 4 is the best in the series and it is getting a remake. It is not just about updated graphics but will feature modernised gameplay and a reimagined storyline. If the remake is anything like Dead Space, it will be really enjoyable.
Six years have passed since the biological disaster in Raccoon City. Agent Leon S. Kennedy, one of the survivors of the incident, has been sent to rescue the president’s kidnapped daughter. He tracks her to a secluded European village, where there is something terribly wrong with the locals.
Resident Evil 4 Remake releases on March 24 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S|X.
Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse
The Fatal Frame series, developed by Koei Tecmo games and Nintendo has seen modest success but the remastered version of Maiden on the Black Water made it more popular.
The Fatal Frame series is a horror, action-adventure game with some JRPG elements. With the success of Maiden of Black Water, the fourth instalment of the series, the Mask of the Lunar Eclipse (2008) is getting a remake with updated graphics and improved gameplay.
The story follows a group of children who mysteriously disappear during a festival on Rogetsu Isle. Although they were found, they had lost their memories. Now they have returned to the island as teenagers.
The girls rely on the Camera Obscura, a camera with the power to capture and seal away unthinkable horrors, and the faint beam of their flashlight while exploring various locations and fending off the ghosts that attack them as they attempt to discover the truth of their haunting past.
Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse releases on March 9 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X and Switch.
