If you are a huge fan of the the Street Fighter series then you will be happy to know that Capcom will be releasing a collection of every game in the set from the original 1987 title all the way up to 3rd Strike which came out in 1999. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that the legendary Street Fighter series has been around for at least decades now. The Street Fighter series was arguably at its peak in terms of popularity during the 90’s before making a comeback in the late 00’s with the emergence of Street Fighter IV.
As of right now the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is set to be released on multiple game consoles including the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 in May 2018. Not only will players have the chance to relive various classics in the Street Fighter series but they will also be able to join lobbies for online multiplayer gameplay. There is no doubt that the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is going to be a game that many fans of the series will look forward to purchasing in the future.
As many people have heard Moonlighter is expected to be released some time in March 2018 for the PlayStation 4 along with the Nintendo Switch. Moonlighter has been a game that Digital Sun has wanted to release since 2017 but for whatever reason was eventually pushed back to this month. Ever since, the KickStarter campaign for this game first started the game has received approximately 5,229 backers along with raising over $134,000 for the project.
The fact that over $134,000 donated for the development of Moonlighter is impressive especially considering the fact that the pledged goal for the game was $40,000. Digital Sun games had managed to triple their desired goal and eventually went on to make this top down action-RPG. Moonlighter looks like it has the potential to be one of the most popular 2D RPG titles of the year along with being a game that many people would want to own for the PS4 and the Nintendo Switch.
As many of us know Monster Hunter World was released for multiple game consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One since its release on January 26. Since it’s release it’s been reported that Monster Hunter World has already sold over one million units worldwide with the PlayStation 4 being the best version of game.
As a action RPG title Monster Hunter World is already looks like it might be one of the best games of 2018. In terms of visual presentation this may be one games that Capcom has ever made. Along with being able to slay or capture monsters the omission of loading screens when moving into different zones of open world landscapes make Monster Hunter World feel more realistic than any of the previous entries in the game.
The stamina system in Monster Hunter World forces players to carefully monitor their actions while progressing through the game. Also, in some ways Monster Hunter World is forgiving since players are given multiple tries to complete a quest if they fail on their very first attempt. Monster Hunter World not only looks impressive as an action RPG but its arguably one of the best games within that genre that Capcom has ever made.
We have seen some interesting titles appear on the Nintendo Switch since it was first released back in March 2017. Since the Spring of last year we got to see games like Super Mario Odessey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and many other cool titles on the Nintendo Switch. Coming up in February Square Enix will be releasing Dragon Quest Builders for the Nintendo Switch.
Dragon Quest Builders is a title that the gaming world has been waiting to see on the Nintendo Switch for a majority of 2017. As both an Action RPG and a sandbox title Dragon Quest Builders has been a huge success by selling over 1 million copies worldwide since its release on various consoles such as the PS3, PS4 along with the PlayStation Vita. Since there aren’t too many action adventure sandbox titles on consoles the Nintendo Switch right now Dragon Quest Builders will definitely be a title worth buying for the hybrid console in February 2018.
There is no doubt that Gran Turismo Sport and Forza Motorsport were among two of the biggest racing games of 2017. The graphics and gameplay of both racing games were amazing but when one compares Gran Turismo Sport to Forza Motorsport 7 there are some major differences that were noticeable between two titles. Forza Motorosport 7 includes over 700 cars to select from for the Xbox One while Gran Turismo Sport has over 150 cars from players to choose from on the PS4. Also, the Virtual Reality feature that Gran Turismo Sport has to offer on the PS4 is one of the main things that separates this game from Forza Motorsport 7.
However, just because Gran Turismo Sport included Virtual Reality support doesn’t automatically mean that it was a superior game. In fact, Forza Motorsport 7 was named “Best Racing Game” by the Game Critics Awards, The Game Awards of 2017 and IGN in 2017. Some might say as of right now Forza Motorsport 7 for the Xbox One has the slight edge over Gran Turismo Sport for the PlayStation 4.
When it comes down to RPG games of the 10’s decade there is no doubt that Person 4: Golden is one of the many titles that comes to mind. In fact, Persona 4: Golden was arguably the best title in the P4 series in general. The only thing about Persona 4: Golden is the fact that it was only included on the PlayStation Vita opposed to the PS4. It’s been over five years since Persona 4: Golden was released on the PlayStation 4 and ever since then many fans of the Persona series in general have wanted Atlus to port the game to the PlayStation 4. As everyone know Atlus had released Persona 5 for the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4 back in the Fall of 2016. Ever since Persona 5 came out in late 2016 it has been considered to be one of the hottest JRPG titles in the gaming world.
If Atlus ever decides port Persona 4 Golden for the PlayStation 4 it would probably to better than what many people would expect in terms of sales. Not only is the demand for Persona 4 Golden on the PS4 high right now but there are also a lot of eyes on the Persona series in general especially following the release of Persona 5 over a year ago. Also, in terms of sales the PlayStation Vita did not do quite as well as many people expected so there is a good chance that too many people didn’t really get a chance to play Persona 4 Golden back in the early 10’s.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been about seven years since Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten was released for the PlayStation 3. Following its release for the PlayStation 3 Disgaea 4 was eventually ported for the PS Vita in different countries such as Japan America, Europe and Australia back in 2014. Since 2014, really hasn’t been any talk about Nippon Ichi Software re-releasing Disgaea 4 on the PS4 at all.
Since 2015, there has been more focus on Disgaea 5 which was originally released for the PS4 before it was ported for the Nintendo Switch back in 2017. While Disgaea 5 is a easier RPG title for people to get their hands on people who are new to the series will never get a chance to play the game unless they buy a PS3 or a PlayStation Vita from a used game store. It would be great to have Disgaea 4 re-released for the PS4 in the future especially considering the fact that it was one of the best RPG titles of the early 10’s.
