I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait until February is over and March is here, and it’s not just because of the warmer weather, it’s the games that are coming out next month. Here are the top 5 games we’re looking forward to playing in March.
#5- EA Sports UFC 2
UFC 2 is on here as the eagerly awaited sequel to EA Sports UFC that was released back in 2014. Now the first one was met with an average review of 70%, which isn’t a lot. But as this is a sequel, it seems that EA is listening to its fans thoughts on the original and have added 5 new game modes and worked to make this game appeal to a wider base of fans for the game. And that’s what puts it on our top five list.
#4- The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD
Who doesn’t love the Zelda series? And with Twilight Princess being a huge success back in 2006, an HD version is a welcome sight for veterans of the series. The reason that it’s not higher on the list is because it is just a remake and not an original, but that’s still reason enough to get excited about this release. The original was the best-selling Legend of Zelda game of all time and received many perfect scores in their reviews. This should hold over most Zelda fans until the next major Zelda installment arrives.
The return of Agent 47 to the consoles is exciting news, to say the least. We last saw him in 2014 in Hitman Go. It was originally intended to be released in December of 2015 but was delayed til March of 2016. I don’t mind delays because that means that they have more time to make the game better. Another reason to be excited about this game is the fact that it’s the first on the Xbox One/PS4, which means better graphics and capabilities for the game. The game will be released in an episodic release format, with new content being added monthly.
#2- Pokkén Tournament
Pokkén Tournament has been a highly anticipated game ever since it was was first teased back in 2013 at a Pokémon Game Show event held in Japan. It’s basically Tekken meets Pokemon, where the fighters are different Pokemon. It’s set to launch with 16 fighters, and 30 non-playable assist characters, with other Pokemon to be added over time. If this game does well, Nintendo will have another major fighting game on their hands next to Super Smash Bros.
#1- Tom Clancy’s The Division
Many gamers have already stepped into the Dark Zone and played both the closed and open betas of the game. This is the game that got me excited about the possibilities of the newer consoles back in 2013. And now the game is right around the corner. This may be the next Destiny, either way, I think this game will have huge sales numbers just due to the hype alone even after the betas. The developers have already outlined the three-part DLC that makes up the season pass. This very well could be the next must-have game for consoles.
All I know is that I can’t wait until March! So many great games are coming out in such a short span of time, that it will be hard to choose from all of them. What do you think of our top 5 list?
