Get ready for an exciting month of gaming on the Nintendo Switch with these top 10 upcoming titles in February 2023.
1. Octopath Travel 2
On February 24th of this year, the highly anticipated Switch game Octopath Traveler 2 was released. This is the sequel to Square Enix’s hit game Octopath Traveler, which came out early last year. With a new story and a mix of familiar and new characters, it promises to be an exciting new journey.
2. Blood Bowl 3
Following several delays over the past few months, Nikon has just confirmed the release date for Blood Bowl 3 in a new trailer. For those of you unfamiliar, Blood Bowl games are an interesting mix of strategy, turn-based RPG style, and action sports. Blood Bowl 3 is shaping up to be an even better-looking game, with the same silly comedy that the series has always offered. The game will be released in February
3. Atlier Ryza 3: Alchemist of the End & The Secret Key
The new game, releasing on consoles including the Switch on February 24th, is a pretty big overhaul. It’s going to have bonus outfits, a new story, and from what I can tell, this is the first official gameplay trailer that the company has released. In any case, the game is said to be a bit bigger in scale as well.
4. Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe
I’m pretty sure a handful of you enthusiasts may have heard or even known about this one since last month or a few months ago, and finally, we have a release date for the Kirby’s Return to Dreamland deluxe edition coming out for the Nintendo Switch. This was formerly a Wii exclusive that initially sold over 5 million copies in a year. Let’s check it out, guys. In case you missed it, the deluxe edition here is going to include new gameplay mechanics, new character skills, and some more stuff.
5. Digimon World: Next Order
We’ve got the Digimon World Next Order game finally coming over to the hybrid console after half a decade of being available already. In fact, Bandai Namco came out with a brand new gameplay trailer for it about half a month ago. So, this game will be released on February 22nd. In addition, all the game’s DLC will be released up until this very day. Check it out, this is actually a story-based semi-open-world Digimon game in case you’re unfamiliar with it.
6. Tales of Symphonia Remastered
A couple of months ago, online, NIS America debuted the first gameplay footage of its newly announced Symphony of the Origin remastered. Technically speaking, one of the best entries in the long-running JRPG series on the switch. The game is now utilizing improved graphics, frame rates, and added in-game abilities to make it more efficient. This time around, the game will be coming out for all consoles in addition to the Switch. Check it out, the game is releasing on February 17th of this year.
7. Clive ‘N’Wrench
Here’s something from roughly a month ago called Clive ‘n’ Wrench. I’m guessing you’d assume it would be a Jack and Dexter-inspired action platformer or just a Ratchet and Clank-style game, made by an indie studio. But it’s nothing short of spectacular for something that never got the chance to be mentioned before. Well, here’s a trailer, the game is said to be coming out on February 24th.
8. Grim Guardians: Demon Purge
We have, by the developers of Bloodstains, a brand new Castlevania-inspired project in the making since last year called Grim Guardians: Demon Purge. It is quite similar to the Moon games, but also draws influences from the original Castlevania games. The game will be released on PC, Switch, and consoles on February 23rd of this year. Here’s a new trailer for it. We will keep you updated.
9. Flame Keeper
At number 9, we’ve got something called Flame Keeper. This game was released around the same time last month. As you can see in the action, it’s a roguelike hacking slasher. There’s not much to talk about, except that the game, in my eyes, seems to be taking quite a bit of inspiration from the classics. It’s like if you were to take the first God of War game, put it in a top-down formula, and put down Raymond to do all the hard work. Check it out. The game is said to be coming out for the Nintendo Switch first on February 23rd, and then on other consoles as well.
10. Labyrinth of Galleria: The Moon Society
And last but not least, we’ve got Labyrinth of Galleria. I actually almost forgot to mention this game as I had no clue this was a thing up until very recently. Labyrinth of Galleria, for those of you who are new to it, could legitimately be your next dungeon-crawling obsession. It’s a dungeon-crawling RPG adventure, halfway between a game mixed with the old classic first-person magic games in an anime style. Check it out in case you missed it. The game is said to be coming out on February 23rd this year.
