Games of March



So with several releases having been delayed until this month, they can be found in last month's article!
  • Alekhine's Gun

For everything else though this is a big month! Samurai Warriors 4 Empires, Trillion: God of Destruction, Nights of Azure and the newest version of Hyrule Warriors. There's plenty from the start of the month all the way to the end and what better way to start than my favorite Legend of Zelda entry which is re-releasing in awesome HD this Friday!

Friday March 4th

While we may all still be waiting for the newest Zelda to release which may or may not be on the Wii U, Twilight Princess is seeing a re-release like Wind Waker in a full 1080p.

With new controls utilizing the gamepad for inventory management it'll be fun to play the first Motion Controlled Zelda with an actual controller this time. Now it's simply waiting for the full remaster of Skyward Sword!

Tuesday March 15th

Aegis of Earth

Sony PlayStations 3 / 4 / Vita

This is something that I personally have been looking to. Aegis of Earth puts players in one of the hottest seats possible as they must lead the defense of one of the last cities of the planet in order to prevent extinction.

EA Sports UFC 2

Sony PlayStation 4

PC

I don't think the UFC needs much in the ways of introduction. Adding in new features to the gameplay jump into the Octagonal ring for some brutal hand to hand action.

Samurai Warriors 4 Empires

Sony PlayStation 4 / Vita

Following on the tails of the Dynasty Series, Samurai Warriors is seeing its empire release.

With tactical elements adding into the Warriors styled combat that we all love, this is definitely a title that is going to make the month of March great.

The brawling girls are back and this time it's on both the PS4 and the Vita. The seventh entry into the series will feature a new story alongside making more characters playable including some from other series such as Dead or Alive.

Terraria

Nintendo 3DS

Terraria isn't a new title per say having already released on multiple systems however it is seeing a release on the 3DS which will be an interesting approach with the two screen design.

Friday March 18th

Pokken Tournament

Nintendo Wii U

Pokemon Stadium came out YEARS ago and while I may not have ever won against my brother it was loads of fun to play. Pokken Tournament is taking this old concept of Pokemon fighting one another to a whole new level having been developed in the same style as the Tekken series.

Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Mario and Sonic are back once again for more Olympic Games. Tackling the summer games will be a different experience from the Winter ones two years ago.

From driving off road to driving on a track there is more than enough driving this month.

TrackMania Turbo is bringing loads of driving to hundreds of tracks and more interestingly will hold support for Virtual Reality.

Friday March 25th

Hyrule Warriors: Legends

Hyrule Warriors: Legends is both a port and a enhancement of the Legend of Zelda Warriors title that released last year on the Wii U.

Trillion: God of Destruction
