All 43 February 2016 Video Game Releases


All 43 February 2016 Video Game Releases

Lots of games to play on Valentine’s.

January had started off 2016 a bit slowly, but it still managed to squeeze in a few worthwhile titles. February definitely kicks things up a notch, though, in terms of game releases over the next few weeks. Huge blockbuster titles, fun little indies, and everything in between await gamers in the shortest month of the year.

Week One (Feb. 1 – Feb. 6)

xcom 2, forget, games, 2016

Februrary starts things off with a nice crowd of indies, an amazing murder mystery, the resurgence of Digimon on consoles, and a highly anticipated sequel. Every platform gets a bit of love this week, but the biggest game is easily the PC exclusive XCOM 2. The sequel to the critically acclaimed reboot is finally being made available so you can see just how good at keeping your troops alive you really are.

If you’re not into the whole strategic side of things, Gravity Rush Remastered brings an amazing handheld game to the big screen, and Agatha Christie: The A.B.C. Murders leaves you solving a string of murders. And, if all else fails, you can just give up and drive across some states in American Truck Simulator.

The second week may not be as chock-full of game releases as the first, but it definitely has no shortage of excitement. Dying Light returns to the limelight with the open world expansion: The Following. Naruto once again goes to battle against the strongest enemies he’s ever faced in Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. If you like your fighting to be a bit more linear, then you’ll be excited to hear that the final chapter in Assassin’s Creed Chronicles, Russia, is releasing, as is the collection of all three games.

There is also the arrival of an insanely cute (yet slightly devilish in appearance) Unravel. If all else fails, love may just conquer in the week before Valentine’s Day.

Some exciting new games hit store shelves and digital market places this week. After you’re done with the Valentine’s festivities there are some kingdoms to save in Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright and Conquest. But, if you’re not down to save anyone, you can always kick some ass in the brand new Street Fighter V.
