January is rapidly turning into a hectic time for fans of Japanese gaming. The likes of Capcom, Square Enix and Bandai Namco like to shy away from Christmas these days, owning the early part of the year instead. It means we've got some massive releases this month, headlined by Resident Evil 2 Remake and Kingdom Hearts 3.
One is a total overhaul of one of the most beloved survival horror games of all time, the other has kept fans waiting for well over a decade. It's the month of the remasters, thanks to no fewer than four coming our way, including Resi, Tales of Vesperia, Onimusha and Mario.
That's not all either. We've got a few PC strategy treats in January thanks to At The Gates and Tropico 6, Ace Combat 7 could become another VR selling point, Planetside Arena brings 1000-player battle royale, while YIIK looks like a truly odd JRPG.
Once a quiet time of year for gamers, there's something this month for just about everyone to sink their teeth into.
