New Video Game Releases March 2019


We got a slew of new video games to anticipate for this month of March along with some that have already been released! take a look at what’s coming our way in the video game industry!

March 1st 2019

Dead or Alive 6

Genre: Fighter

Platform: PlayStation 4, XBOX One, PC

Release Date: 03/01/2019

After her brief retirement following the events of Dead or Alive 5 Kasumi is thrust into the Ninja anime action yet again in this new release of Dead or Alive!

A direct sequel to the previous Dead or Alive 5 take on a variety of 27 fighters some of which are new and exclusive to this specific release and others whom you might be familiar with from previous installments although do not expect finding any whom appeared on Dead or Alive Xtreme 3!

New things to expect in the series will be stages, a genius female scientist by the code name of NiCO who proves to be the primary threat to the Ninja organization, progressive damage visuals through combat matches, vividly illustrating the condition of yourself and your opponent, and all new and exclusive super abilities unleashed upon the filling of your break gauge during combat introduced in the series!

This is all out ninja martial arts and super human madness brought to you in the form of Dead or Alive’s signature anime art presentation and a must have for fans of the series!

ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove

Genre: Action Platformer

Platform: PlayStation 4, XBOX One, PC

Release Date: 03/01/2019

Talk about bringing back a classic and keeping it very true to its original release. ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is back in the groove for the third time but this time more true to the original SEGA Genesis game than the last, ToeJam & Earl: Panic on Funkatron for the SEGA Genesis but completely different play style and not favored in my opinion.

In this new release, traverse the radical floating islands with the same over head play style as before yet… like never before in its own new way! The art style stays just as true and dope as ever before and the music is still the funky hip-hop we loved in the 1991 release. This time though, you won’t be the aliens invading earth but rather it will be some earthlings invading your planet that managed to stow away with you during your last adventure.

The totally wacky adventure now will be to capture the invading humans and send them back to where they came from! How’s that for backward!?

March 5th 2019

Left Alive

Genre: Survival, Action-Shooter

Platform: PlayStation 4, PC

Release Date: 03/05/2019

From the same creators who brought you Metal Gear Solid and Xenoblade Chronicles (Kojima Productions and Square Enix) comes this dark futuristic gritty tale focusing around three survivors in the year 2127 in a place called Novo Slava in a war of man vs. machine as armored troops, tanks, and even mechs attempt to exterminate mankind!

In the midst of this total devastation and warfare you will be required to survive the unforgiving elements via collecting and crafting while fighting in whatever fashion best suits you, either stealthy or guns blazing! All the while, uncovering the mysteries behind how things escalated this desperate state, making decisions along the way that will alter the outcome of the game in drastic and potentially terrible ways!

March 8th 2019

Devil May Cry 5 (DMC V)

Genre: Action Adventure, Hack and Slash

Platform: PlayStation 4, XBOX One, PC

Release Date: 03/08/2019

Join the Demon Hunters yet again in the most epic and graphically awe-inspiring release to date, Devil May Cry 5! Join Dante and Nero in an event that takes place several years after those of Devil may Cry 4 that centers around the appearance of a mysterious tree in Red Grave City, a tree of which its roots seek out the city’s population to drain them of their blood, resulting in its growth and the growing of its fruit.

Dante is confronted by a strange book and staff wielding individual named V who does not excel at combat but has the ability of summoning a black panther named Shadow and a Griffin whose name is … well, griffin of course! Both of which are familiars!

Little did Dante know that Nero had already made his way to Red Grave City with Nico at his side in the pursuit of unfinished business, particularly a hooded stranger responsible of stealing his Devil Bringer arm which consequently is now replaced by a new and improved one name the Devil Breaker. Coincidentally the hooded dude that Nero pursues turns out to be the one responsible for the menacing blood-thirsty tree that burst forth in the midst of the city! Apparently this mysterious individual brought it forth with the intention of consuming the fruit it bears in order to obtain vast power, making him king of the underworld!

It’s all guns, swords, bionic arms, magic, power, and hoards of demons met with pure badassery in this new chapter! Sure to be an awesome addition to the popular series!

Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn

Genre: Platformer

Platform: Nintendo 3DS

Release Date: 03/08/2019

The creative unraveling tale of Kiby’s Epic Yarn is bound to hit the Nintendo 3DS this March 8th and with its ongoing success since 2010 on the initial Wii to its port to the Wii U, its sure to do quite well on Nintendo’s latest hand-held gaming device the 3DS! surprisingly, this title will not be released for the Switch though.

Banished to a world of yarn by a crazed sorcerer, Kirby embarks on the most incredibly creative and crafty adventure this series has seen yet! Unbutton, unzip, unravel, drop button bombs, wield wire swords… and that’s just the beginning! familiar encounters will take place with both Meta Knight and King Dedede along with Kirby’s signature power still available of copying his enemies abilities!

March 15th 2019

The Division 2

Genre: Action Role-Playing, Survival, Third Person Shooter

Platform: PlayStation 4, XBOX One, PC

Release Date: 03/15/2019

The initial Division was just about as sweet as it was bitter, especially upon launch and gradually got better in time but not in its entirety! The Division was a rough start to a brilliant idea and personally, my hopes are peeked for this new release of a sequel as I am banking on them polishing it up and giving us the game as it always should have been without all the bugs and unbalanced post game content

Division 2 delivers a lot of promise especially in what we have seen with its open beta, in this new release we will no longer be located in Manhattan. Instead, we’re occupying the capital, Washington DC. A post pandemic one with a layout exactly imitating the real life DC! As a member of the Division (civilian agents serving as a last line of defense) your mission is to restore order to the city that has fallen into lawlessness, and on the verge of a collapse with its rapid decline in stability! Gun up and suit up and prepare for another journey into total anarchy!

Regarding end game I think we can rest assured that its getting a huge overhaul this time as it promises to provide a year worth of ongoing content, story, and missions, along with co-op, pvp, and the forming of clans. Also, at the level 30 cap, and upon completion of the initial story mission you will be able to open your character up to a specialization class to further progress your skills. It’s safe to say that conquering DC is only the beginning of The Division 2!

March 21st 2019

The Sinking City

Genre: Action-Adventure, Survival Horror, Investigation

Platform: PlayStation 4, XBOX One, PC

Release Date: 03/21/2019

Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft, The Sinking City is a mind twisting horror investigation game that pushes the boundaries of reality as you arrive in Oakmont playing the role of a detective by the name of Charles W. Reed on a mission to investigate a super natural flood that has taken the town and corrupted the minds of its residents. Something about this title simply makes me reminisce on Bioshock

In your sleuthing efforts sanity will be your most valuable asset and the hardest to maintain as your presence in the afflicted town poses a threat to your own mental stability and solving the mysteries of the phenomenon becomes a time sensitive matter as you race against the flood that attempts to claim your mind!

Brace yourself for horrific encounters with the crazed and creatures of a different dimension as you begin to question what is real and what isn’t and attempt to crack a case that just might crack you instead!

We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

-H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu

March 22 2019

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Genre: Action-Adventure, Stealth

Platform: PlayStation 4, XBOX One, PC

Release Date: 03/22/2019

This game rates as one of my most anticipated for the year, Sekiro Shadows Die Twice! This game will be brought to us by both From Software and published by Activision, creators of the souls’ series and publisher of the Call of Duty series!

However we will not see the same brutal challenge that the Souls games offered or much anything in relation to that specific gaming series presented in this title, it would appear that From Software is looking to turn over a new leaf this time around.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will utilize glorious executions, agile acrobatics, and stealthy combat to deliver a smooth, sleek, ninja gaming experience of its very own set in 16th century sengoku with a one armed man whose name literally means “one armed wolf,” yes we’re talking about none other than Sekiro and his prosthetic arm given to him by a busshi after loosing his own while protecting his lord.

Throughout your adventure of vengeance against the Ashina clan who took the life of him whom you served and the arm which you had lost, you will learn to use your replacement arm to your advantage, equipping it with a variety of gadgets and weapons growing in strength and power as you serve your enemies pure justice.

March 23rd 2019

Total War: Three Kingdoms

Genre: Real Time Strategy, Turn-Base Strategy

Platform: PC

Release Date: 03/23/2019

Journey into Ancient China like never before as the award-winning real time, turn-base strategy, Total War crowns you Warlord of 190CE era where you govern your province, command your armies via chosen champions, build up your strongholds and go to war midst the beautiful outlying lands in the country of China!

Make your own choices along the way to determine what type of leader you will be and watch as your destiny unfolds before your very eyes all based off of the decisions you made in your conquest!

Tropico 6

Genre: construction / management / government sumlation

Platform: PlayStation 4, XBOX One, PC

Release Date: 03/29/2019

Despite its delays in production, I think its safe to say that Tropico 6 is an anticipated title for those looking for a Sims form of game play on a tropical island setting where you can create your very own empire, community, city, village, or whatever you please midst the Caribbean islands of Tropico and tend to its populace as El Presidente of your very own world. Yes, I did say “islands” Plural as Tropico 6 now allow for you to build upon a whole archipelago as opposed to the singular island approach of Tropico 5.

This new installment also shows promise of an exceptional AI system built into the citizens of your island… so treat them right and they should do the same… don’t and it could very possibly back-fire on you!

Yoshi’s Crafted World

Genre: Side-Scrolling, Platformer

Platform: Nintendo Switch

Release Date: 03/29/2019

Similar to Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Yoshi’s Crafted world is a world created entirely from artsy crafty things including Yoshi himself and the enemies he faces! This makes for unique and awesome creative experiences throughout, setting it apart from other titles and making simply worth playing for the new aspect of it alone!

Yoshi’s Crafted World makes for the eighth installment in the Yoshi’s series and takes place on Yoshi’s Island. One day Baby Bowser and Kamek make an attempt to steal the island’s most valuable artifact called the Sunbeam Stone which is said to have the ability of making all your dreams come true! As it so happens though, their mischievous plans go completely awry and the Sunbeam Stone’s gems are sent flying across the island where the Yoshi’s must team up on an ultimate fetch quest to obtain them before anyone else does

Yoshi’s Crafted world makes for awesome couch co-op with the Joy-Con remotes and has tons of awesome features like flipping the screen with the stomp of Yoshi’s foot to play each level both forward and backward and fun collectibles that are as numerous as they are challenging finding!
