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
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.
Dreams -- February 14
Available on: PS4
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?
Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle -- February 18
Available on: PS4, Xbox One
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
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.
