It’s about time that we finally get a game from the Seven Deadly Sins manga/anime series: it’s one of the most exciting and interesting series out there. Now I can’t wait to experience playing as these characters on my PS4 this month.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Developed by: Warhorse Studios
Published by: Deep Silver
Genre: Role-playing
Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Release date: February 13, 2018

Summary: Kingdom Come: Deliverance takes place in the early 15th century, in the Kingdom of Bohemia, part of the Lands of the Bohemian Crown in what is now the Czech Republic. The accessible area of the game is located in the region between Sázava and Rataje nad Sázavou. Other real-world settlements and towns in the game include Stříbrná Skalice, Světlá nad Sázavou, Talmberk Castle, and Samopše. Charles IV, King of Bohemia and Holy Roman Emperor, dies in 1378, and is succeeded by his elder son Wenceslaus IV, who proves to be a hedonistic and unambitious monarch. Wenceslaus’s cunning half-brother, Sigismund of Luxembourg, King of Hungary and Croatia, sees an opportunity and travels to Bohemia under false pretenses to kidnap and imprison Wenceslaus in 1402. With no king on Bohemia’s throne, Sigismund is free to pillage the land and extort its people with his army.

I don’t know much about this game, but I definitely love what I have seen in trailers with regards to the story. I’m fascinated by history, so any game that taps into that shoots immediately up my radar.

Secret of Mana

Developed by: Square Enix
Published by: Square Enix
Genre: Role-playing
Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita
Release date: February 15, 2018

Summary: Originally released in 1993, “Secret of Mana” is by far the most popular title in the Mana series. Now it’s finally getting a long-awaited, full 3D remake! The game faithfully retells the beloved story while adopting modern 3D graphics and controls. It will feature a newly arranged musical score, voiced characters and new content. The adventure of Randi, Primm, and Popoi is reborn in the new “Secret of Mana”.

I am really looking forward to the remake of one of my favorite games from my teenage years. I was a huge fan of the Secret of Mana when it was first released, but to see it finally coming to the newest generation of systems is nothing but nostalgic perfection.

Fe

Developed by: Zoink
Published by: Electronic Arts
Genre: Action adventure
Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Release date: February 16, 2018

Summary: In Fe, players are enchanted by the natural surroundings as they uncover secrets, complete side quests, and meet the mystical creatures of the forest. Players climb, glide and dig as they voyage through the open experience meeting, interacting and rescuing plants and animals from the Silent Ones, the machine antagonists that are threatening the forest. Through unparalleled freedom of exploration in a world full of discoveries to uncover, players become Fe and never want to leave.

I am completely sold on the art and style of Fe, ever since the first time I saw the trailer. I am still wary about anything coming from the EA camp nowadays, but if they can let this new property stand on its own and not muck it up too much, it may be a huge hit.

Metal Gear Survive

Developed by: Konami
Published by: Konami
Genre: Survival
Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Release date: February 20, 2018

Summary:  Metal Gear Survive picks up from the ending of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, to an alternate timeline caused by unexplained wormholes forming in the sky.

Oh man, I have some huge reservations about this game, especially after all the nightmares that have been told during the development of this game… still, I feel like giving Metal Gear Survive a chance… but boy, do I have some huge reservations.
