For the most part, we here at Warp Zoned are all pretty excited about some Nintendo game or another coming out this month! But that’s not all. Read on to find out what we’re excited to play this March!
March 2016 kicks off in the best way possible with the release of Mortal Kombat XL, NetherRealm’s expanded “Game of the Year” edition of last year’s Mortal Kombat X. Yes, I’ve already played the original game to death, but who can resist an Alien that chestbursts its way out of Baraka?
I’m also mildly interested in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, but I’ve had a sealed copy of the GameCube original sitting on my game shelf for the past ten years. Maybe it’s time to finally open it.
Finally, Xavient’s first person magic spell shooter, Lichdom: Battlemage, will appear on the PS4 and Xbox One this month, and it looks like goofy fun. And don’t we all need a little more goofy fun in our lives?
There aren’t many games I am interested in getting in March, other than the awesome Blood Alloy” Reborn, which came out yesterday on PC. I’m interested in Tom Clancy’s The Division, but the reviews of the beta have been so abysmal that I’m disheartened.
The only other game that even remotely has my interest is Pokken Tournament, but I’ve yet to buy a Wii U title at launch, and I don’t think that will be the game to break my streak.
I am still undecided about whether to get The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, because I really enjoyed the GameCube version, and have fond memories of Midna as a companion. I am sure I will no doubt pick it up to quench my Zelda cravings.
Just like I could not get into Destiny, I’ll probably pass on Tom Clancy’s The Division, if only because I’m an old school single-player gamer, despite my attempts to get into multiplayer games. But never say never.
And Kholat looks like it would scare the the pants off of me, and not in a good way. So I’ll definitely pick that up.
Looks like March is a Nintendo-centric month for me. I’m looking forward to Pokken Tournament, since it combines two franchises that I’m quite fond of. I’ll also probably get The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. I played the original when the Wii first launched, and now it should be interesting to try it out with traditional controls.
And since Andrew mentioned it being scary, now my interest is piqued for Kholat…
While I wasn’t overawed by the beta for Tom Clancy’s The Division, I thought the shooting was solid and I always enjoy a loot grind, so I’m looking forward to digging into the full version of the game.
I haven’t played many of the recent entries in the Hitman series, but I have such fond memories of the older games that I am excited to play the new one when it releases later this month. I’m also just interested to see what’s going on with it now that it is being released episodically.
Continue on for a complete look at the March 2016 release schedule.
