With big games like Tekken 8, Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, and Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown coming out in January, 2024 is off to a great start in the gaming world. Additionally, February offers a plethora of new releases from well-known studios including Ubisoft, Square Enix, and Rocksteady Studios across a variety of genres. This month marks the launch of Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which returns gamers to the cherished Arkham environment but adds a live service element.

A number of well-known older games that have been remastered and recreated will also be released on contemporary hardware in February. February 2 saw the release of Persona 3 Reload, a PC, PlayStation, and Xbox remake of Persona 3, while February 14 saw the release of Tomb Raider I–III Remastered, a remaster of the original Core Design Tomb Raider games. Then there is Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, a reimagining of the 2013 critically acclaimed adventure game, and Mario vs. Donkey Kong, a recreation of the 2004 puzzle platformer for the Nintendo Switch.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, the second game in the trilogy of remakes for the 1997 masterpiece Final Fantasy VII, may be the biggest release of the month. On February 29th for the PS5, Square Enix’s action-RPG will make an effort to retell—and maybe reinterpret—the cherished tale of the first game.
