Now Arriving: Games of January 2018

Happy new year, everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and got everything you were hoping for. Even though it’s finally January, the game release schedule doesn’t slow down for anyone. While January has traditionally continued the slow release schedule in the past, the trend has been changing over the past couple of years.

January is a fighting game fan’s dream as there are two major game releases this month. Many are hoping Dragon Ball FighterZ can fill the classic Marvel vs Capcom void, while Capcom makes amends for the overly slow start to Street Fighter V by releasing a lower priced Arcade Edition. Not only does the Arcade Edition include all DLC released so far, it further enhances the game with new UI, new modes, and more.

Not a huge fighting game fan? No problem. Capcom is also serving a hot plate of monster as well. Monster Hunter World takes the familiar and wildly popular formula from handheld devices and brings it to the consoles.

There’s plenty more to check out this month as well. The complete release schedule for January 2018 can be found below the jump. Enjoy!
