The cold winter months are slowly melting away as we now enter the month of love. You don't often find a plethora of amazing games jumping at this time of the year and, this year is no exception. But, we still managed to find just enough quality titles to recommend for everyone. Here are the major games releasing in the second month of 2020:
Yakuza 5 Remastered (Feb. 11)
Originally released back in December 2012, Yakuza 5 was the 5th game in the cult classic Yakuza series. The series is an 'off-beat' action-adventure video game developed and published by Sega, managing to amass a true cult following over the years. So much so, that they decided to remaster their PS3 entries for the PS4 and bring them to the west. Yakuza 3 & 4 Remastered were already released and come this February 11th, Yakuza 5 Remastered will make its debut.
DARKSIDERS GENESIS (feb. 14)
When the third game in the Darksiders series was released in 2018, it didn't exactly blow away any minds. Now, THQ Nordic is giving the series another chance to appease to gamers with new spin-off prequel named Darksiders Genesis. The game first released on the new Google Stadia service back December but now makes it to the more traditional consoles (including the Switch) this February 14th.
Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition
February 14 is, of course, valentine's day and nothing says I love you like a Hadouken to the face. Street Fighter 5 has already been released of course but, Capcom's nauseating love for multiple editions of their prime fighting game franchise continues with this Champion Edition. Expect more tweaks to the gameplay, all the characters, stages and most of all the costumes with this version.
Mega man Zero/zx legacy collection (Feb. 25)
Speaking of Capcom, they had a stellar 2019 with all of there major releases hitting both commercial and critical success. They even managed to show their much maligned mascot, Mega Man some love with the release of the Mega Man X Legacy Collection. Now, fast forwarding to 2020, Capcom will release another collection, this time starring the much cooler looking robot boy, Zero.
one punch man: a hero nobody knows (Feb. 28)
Bandai Namco continues there life long quest to transform every single anime into a video game with its new One Punch game. These type of anime games can be hit and miss with Bandai Namco's latest in the genre (Tokyo Ghoul and My Hero Academia) being only decent. However, these types of games are always for the fans and, I personally can't wait to wreck people with the S-Tier Mumen Rider.
And that concludes our top 5 recommended games for February. As stated above, pickings are slim but fret not fellow gamers, this merely the came before the storm as the rest of 2020 is shaping up to be the best yet.
