Top 10 Games Coming Out March 2019

“Oh hi March” –  Tommy Wiseau. And just like that, we’re three months into 2019. While most of you have been waiting for FromSoftware’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice or Tom Clancy’s The Division 2. There are the rest of us that are perfectly happy that this is the month we get Yoshi’s Crafted World. I for one am excited for the ole nostalgia flashbacks in this coming list as well as The Sinking City which you’re not going to want to miss.

 

Dead or Alive 6 by Team Ninja,  Koei Tecmo – March 1st

Dead or Alive 6 is the latest entry in the long-running Dead or Alive fighting game series. This entry brings with it a greater focus on realism and graphic detail during combat, including persistent damage on character models. Gameplay changes include a push toward accessibility with the addition of one-button combos. As well as a new meter mechanic called Break Gauge that will fill as players deal or take damage.

Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC

 

ToeJam & Earl: Back In The Groove by HumaNature Studios – March 1st

A follow-up to ToeJam & Earl, the 1991 Sega Genesis cult classic. ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove gives players a chance to dive back into the Rogue-like action and exploration gameplay seen in the original release. Players will explore randomly generated levels in search of key items to clear each level while fending off and avoiding enemies.

Played from the classic isometric perspective and featuring a lot of that old ’90s charm. Back in the Groove adds some new features to keep things fresh. Four-player offline and online co-op play and a total of nine playable characters should help round out the nostalgic experience.

Platform: PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, Mac

 

Devil May Cry 5 by Capcom – March 8th

Devil May Cry 5 is the next in the action combat series, known for flashy combos and flashier protagonists. This time around, you’ll get to play as three characters: Dante, Nero and newcomer, V. All characters use their own unique weapons and combos to rack up the damage. Returning fans will remember Dante’s and Nero’s signature weapons, Rebellion and Red Queen, respectively. When playing as V, you’ll summon demons to assist you in combat by carrying you around the battle arenas and helping you add to your combo strings.

Online multiplayer has also been added. Dubbed the Cameo System, this will allow players to fight alongside each other during the points of the campaign where the different playable characters are scripted to meet up. So, instead of your ally being an AI partner, it’ll be another player who is either off in the distance or right next to you at different points in the story.

Platform: Ps4, Xbox One, PC

 

Fenimore Fillmore: 3 Skulls Of The Toltecs by Casual Brothers – March 15th

One of the very early classic point and click adventure games is getting a remaster. Fenimore Fillmore is our cowboy hero in 1866 Arizona who gets involved in a shooting near Big Town. The dying peddler gives Fenimore a golden skull and tells him the legend of a fabulous treasure that he can find by collect the 3 golden skulls. Enter evil frairs, Apaches, Mexican revolutionaries, French soldiers and bootleg whiskey set in the ole American Wild West.

Platform: PC

 

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 by Massive Entertainment, Ubisoft – March 15th

The Division 2 will continue the story of the original, this time taking place in Washington, D.C. In this third-person online loot shooter, you’ll work your way through D.C. seven months after the man-made viral outbreak of a very deadly flu-like disease that took place during the first game. As in the original, you’ll go on missions as designated agents of the U.S. government to save people and restore order to the area. Newly added to The Division 2 is an eight-person raid on marauder strongholds.

Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC

 

The Sinking City by Frogwares, Bigben Interactive – March 21st

It’s hard enough being a private eye when the world makes sense. But when there are fish-men on every corner, weird cults and magic involved, investigating crimes is darn right tricky. The Sinking City follows the adventure of private investigator Charles W. Reed as he investigates the flooded town of 1920s Oakmont, Massachusetts. Explore the Lovecraftian scenes, collect evidence, gather information, and interview suspects. All clues can be put together in Reed’s Mind Palace, where players can come up with their own deductions. However, the game won’t tell players whether they’ve got it right, and their decisions will have a direct impact on how the story plays out.

Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC

 

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice by From Software, Activision – March 22nd

The next game from Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of the Dark Souls series, is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. You play as a one-armed shinobi in a heavily mythologized version of 16th-century Japan who seeks revenge for his kidnapped lord. Like the Souls games, Sekiro is a third-person action game that requires you to study and carefully react to enemy attack patterns.

You’ll be much more mobile in Sekiro than you ever were in Dark Souls. Including but not limited to the very exciting ability to jump and swing from trees. The only thing missing from Sekiro is the lack of multiplayer — either competitive or cooperative — making Sekiro a strictly offline, single-player experience.

Platform: PS4, Xbox One, PC

 

Yoshi’s Crafted World by Nintendo – March 29th

Two cute Nintendo games in one month? You do spoil us. Coming up this March is Yoshi’s Crafted World. Like the other Yoshi games expect a side-scrolling platformer action where you eat enemies and put them into eggs. Instead of yarn this time you’ll make your way through an arts-and-crafts-themed world. Featuring lots of cardboard and other crafts items that make up the world design. Some stages will include 3D depth that allows you to explore toward and away from the camera. Each stage is designed to be played once, from right to left; and a second time in the opposite direction. A two-player mode will be included for offline co-op play.

Platform: Switch

 

Tropico 6 by Limbic Ent., Kalypso Media – March 30th

El Presidente is back! In many ways, this sequel will be familiar to Tropico fans, despite it having a new developer. But for all that’s the same, a few new features should help alleviate any claustrophobia. Tropico 6 introduces some brand-new features to the series, such as the ability to play across archipelagos. You can also steal well-known landmarks from around the world, such as the Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty.  Each mission will now take place on an archipelago—with one main landmass surrounded by smaller satellite islands. Tropico 6 will launch with 15 story missions, and each mission map can also be played in sandbox mode (on top of a further 15 maps exclusively designed for sandbox play).

Platform: PC

 

Beat Cop by Pixel Crow, 11 Bit Studios – March 30th

You play Officer Jack Kelly, a former detective who’s been bumped down to a beat cop after some vaguely explained incident with a Senator, a murder, and some stolen diamonds. Your bosses know you’re being framed for the death, but everyone seems to think you stole the jewels. You’re back on the bottom rung, in a squad with four other dodgy police officers, and have to patrol a single pixelated street every day until you can prove your innocence.

Platform: PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC, Mac, Android, iOS
