One Punch Man, Mega Man, and Mr. Wolf are here.
February is just about over, but we've still got a slate of new games to dig into this week. Dota Underlords leaves Steam Early Access, and strategy fans can also plot to control China with Romance of the Three Kingdoms 14. You can also create a whole heap of destruction in Bloodroots and One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows. Finally, if you missed out on the Mega Man Zero or ZX games, you can revisit them with the Zero/ZX Legacy Collection.
Dota Underlords -- February 25
Available on: PC, iOS, Android
The auto-battler finally gets a full release this week. In case you're not familiar with the Dota-based strategy game, here's the gist: two players place heroes on an 8x8 grid, at which point the heroes duke it out without further input from the players--last hero standing wins. It's all about strategically picking and placing your favorite Dota heroes on the board.

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch
This collection includes Mega Man Zero, Zero 2, Zero 3, Zero 4, ZX, and ZX Advent, plus some brand-new features. The Mega Man series is known for tricky platforming, but the Casual Scenario Mode and Save Assist will make your adventure much easier. For the competitive crowd, there's a new Z Chaser Mode where you can race others and set best times on the online leaderboards.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows -- February 28
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Based on the smash-hit anime, this arena fighter stays true to One Punch Man in a clever way. Saitama does indeed win every fight with a single punch, but if you choose him for your team during any of the 3-on-3 fights, he'll take a while to actually show up, leaving you to fight at a disadvantage until he arrives. Of course, there are plenty of other fan-favorite characters to choose from too.

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV -- February 28
Available on: PC
The latest in the long-running strategy series has the most characters in the games' history--150 to be exact. Throw in 1,000 officers to command in battle, and you've got a recipe for some serious tactics. Romance 14 is set on a single, massive map of China, featuring 50 cities and more than 300 regions.
Bloodroots -- February 28
Available on: PS4, PC, Switch
The goal of every Bloodroots level is the same: take out all the bad guys. To do this, Mr. Wolf can wield almost anything on screen as a weapon, from fence posts to barrels to guns. Thing is, he goes down in a single hit, restarting the area. You'll have to be fast and methodical as you hunt down the gang that betrayed you.
