Top New Video Games Out On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Month -- February 2020

It's an action-packed month of anniversaries, exclusives, and remasters.

The month of love is here, and this episode of New Releases is taking a top-level look at some of the biggest games of February. The new month kicks off with The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics and closes out with One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows. In between, PS4 players can enjoy exclusives like Dreams and the Yakuza 5 remaster. Platinum Games fans can also revisit Bayonetta and Vanquish with their 10th Anniversary Bundle.

The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance Tactics -- February 4

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch

Netflix created a series based on the cult-classic film, and now that series is getting its own game. As the name states, this is a tactics game, and it features over 50 skirmishes to win, 14 characters to lead into battle, and plenty of custom jobs to assign along the way as the war between the Gelflings and Skeksis rages on.

Yakuza 5 -- February 11

Available on: PS4

No Caption Provided

The Yakuza Remastered Collection is a one-time purchase, but that buy-in gets you remasters of Yakuza 3, 4, and 5. Those three games got staggered release dates, but the final entry arrives this month. Taking after the "5" in its name, this particular entry is set across five different parts of Japan and features five playable characters, including everyone's favorite ruffian Kazuma Kiryu.

More Coverage:

Dreams -- February 14

Available on: PS4

No Caption Provided

Media Molecule, creators of LittleBigPlanet, have crafted another deep tool set with Dreams. This PS4 exclusive lets you sculpt objects, build worlds, and create pretty much any type of activity you can think of--someone even remade Final Fantasy VII within the game. What will you dream up?

More Coverage:

Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle -- February 18

Available on: PS4, Xbox One

No Caption Provided

These Platinum Games cult classics launched 10 years ago, and they're being bundled together on PS4 and Xbox One to celebrate. Those of you with a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X can even experience them in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. Seems like a good way to refresh yourself before we finally get Bayonetta 3.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows -- February 28

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

No Caption Provided

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.

More Coverage:

February is just getting started, and there are plenty of games on the horizon. Next week, we'll dive into the souped-up release of Street Fighter V: Championship Edition and a new expansion for Dead Cells, called The Bad Seed.

Snack World is coming to NA on the 14th as well on the Switch. If you liked Fantasy Life on the 3DS, this is basically its successor.

@aross2004: Since that's a console port and not the initial release it's not in this episode. I try to keep it to just 5 games, so these episodes that look at the month overall are pretty selective. It'll most likely be in a future episode soon though.

Bayonetta is amazing from start to finish... The game keeps changing and getting "bigger," to the point that "over the top" doesn't adequately describe it. Combo practice during loading screens was a nice bonus too.

Anyone who loved Nier Automata but missed Bayonetta would be well-served by picking this up. ...and (minor spoilers) you'll even discover where the flying and shooting modes got their start. :)

@Pyrosa: I’ve double dipped on only one game in my life and that was Bayonetta. Hadn’t realized it came out in 2010—it very well maybe my game of the decade.

@Pyrosa: Bayonetta is such an incredible game. I own it on 4 different systems so I'm in no hurry to get this version, but it's a game I try to replay ever year or so.

@Jimbowesker: I got to admit I wasn't aware that it was coming to PS4 either. It'll probably be based off the PC version that also had 4K and 60FPS.
