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

Time for pitching, catching, and slaying.

A whole new month has arrived, and March has so much to play that this episode of New Releases is highlighting six games instead of the normal five. March has Nioh 2 for action junkies, MLB The Show 20 for sports fans, and Doom Eternal for those of you with an itchy trigger finger. If you're looking for something more chill, there's also Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX and Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Nintendo Switch. Finally, Xbox One and PC players can get their Metroidvania fix with Ori and the Will of the Wisps.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX -- March 6

Available on: Switch

Remember Red and Blue Rescue Team on the Game Boy Advance? Well this Switch re-release includes everything in those dungeon crawlers, coated in a new watercolor-like art style. It also adds Mega Evolutions introduced in Pokémon X and Y. An Eshop demo is available now if you wanna try it out without spending your hard-earned money.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps -- March 11

Available on: Xbox One, PC

No Caption Provided

While it sports the same gorgeous look as Ori and the Blind Forest, this sequel is changing things up--and not just by taking the adventure beyond the forest itself. The first game had manual checkpoints, but this one features auto-saves. Where the first game offered linear upgrades, the sequel instead lets you purchase powers using collectible shards. And yes, Ori will be available on Game Pass on launch day.

More Coverage:

Nioh 2 -- March 13

Available on: PS4

No Caption Provided

This is actually a prequel to Nioh, so instead of playing as samurai William Adams, you'll create your own custom character. You'll still have to change stances and manage your stamina as you take on big bosses, but fortunately you can do so with friends in three-player co-op. What's more, you can actually transform into a yokai yourself if you collect a monster's Soul Core.

More Coverage:

MLB The Show 20 -- March 17

Available on: PS4

No Caption Provided

MLB The Show 19 may have included the Minor League, but it didn't have player likenesses. This year's game actually features the Minor League players themselves. And since you're probably wondering which pro got the spotlight, this year's cover athlete is the Chicago Cubs' Javier "El Mago" Bâez.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons -- March 20

Available on: Switch

No Caption Provided

There's almost too much new stuff to talk about with the latest Animal Crossing outing. This one is set on an island--one you can completely terraform using the new Nook Phone. There are also new animal pals to meet, seasonal updates to enjoy, and full customization of your Villager from the start.

More Coverage:

Doom Eternal -- March 20

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Stadia

No Caption Provided

Combat in 2016's Doom was frantic enough on its own, but the sequel is taking things to the next level with a grappling hook and flamethrower. There's also Battlemode, an asymmetrical multiplayer experience where one Doomslayer takes on two player-controlled demons. Expect tons of demons in the campaign too, including the new Marauder and Doom Hunter.

More Coverage:

March has only just begun, and there are plenty more video games coming down the pipe. The next episode of New Releases will serve up some strategy with the Langrisser I & II bundle and anime action with My Hero One's Justice 2.

Just enough time to beat Doom before the big one hits in April.
