2018 and its fantastic array of releases is now behind us, so what gems are coming in 2019? Well, below are a few of my most anticipated games for 2019.
Resident Evil 2 Remake – January 25
For many fans, the Resident Evil franchise has never managed to top the original games, so this upcoming remake of the second game in the franchise has attracted a fair bit of excitement. There’s not long to wait, either, with the title releasing on the 25th January. It remains to be seen just how accurate a remake this will be. The game has been rebuilt from the ground up which could well lead to the temptation letting modernisation override nostalgia but, according to the trailers, the signs are looking good. If you are interested, feel free to check out the trailer above.
Kingdom Hearts 3 – January 29th
The decade long wait is nearly over as fans only need wait until the 29th January to get their hands on the new Kingdom Hearts game. The game will introduce some all new worlds linked to newer Disney IP like Frozen, Tangled and Big Hero 6 as well as revisiting some old favourites such as Toy Story and Hercules’ Coliseum world.
The game is looking great across the many trailers so far revealed and there are sure to be a few surprises kept in store for release day. This is my most anticipated game of the year, and it’s great that I only have to wait until the end of the month. Feel free to check out the latest trailer linked above.
Devil May Cry 5 – March 8th
Another long-awaited sequel is also due for release this year with Devil May Cry 5 releasing in March. The full details are being quite closely guarded but it includes multiple playable characters including Dante, Nero and the new character V. A playable demo is also being released for the title on PS4 and PC in February. Feel free to check out the above trailer.
Ori and the Will of the Wisps – TBC
The first Ori title is among my favourite games of time with excellent visuals and sharp finely tune controls. The sequel will introduce and all new adventure with Ori leaving the forest Nibel and exploring the world beyond, discovering more about the lost Ones and his own destiny. There is no solid date yet for release other than sometime this year. More details will follow when available. Until then, feel free to check out the trailer above.
Psychonauts 2 – TBC
Yet another long-awaited sequel due for release this year is Psychonauts 2. Following on from the end of the PSVR game In The Rhombus of Ruin, Pyschonauts 2 will introduce an all new adventure. The old cast will return to the headquarters of a changed Psychonauts organisation which seems to have taken a dark direction while its leader was away with rumours of some very unorthodox practices like necromancy. There is no solid release date yet set for this title either but it has been announced for a 2019 release. In the meantime, feel free to check out the trailer above.
