Don’t know what games are coming out this week? Don’t worry! We here at NZGamer.com have you covered, organising some of the biggest releases into one handy article. Remeber, you' also get VIP points for following games – so make sure to add these ones too!
The year is starting off slowly, but things are guaranteed to ramp up soon. Before major AAA releases hit their stride, you'll have titles like Gravity Rush 2 to look forward to; with her time-bending powers, protagonist Kat can fight and navigate around her world in strange -- and often unpredictable -- ways.
For a broader look at what's coming out this month, make sure to check out the January 2016 Game Release Schedule. For an overview of the year, check out the 2017 Game Release Schedule, which we'll periodically be updating.
Note: While this list is intended to be as comprehensive as possible, it is difficult to cover everything, especially with the growing prominence of downloadable and indie games. The dates of some releases can also shift around. If you notice anything that's missing, please let us know in the comments, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the sequel to the acclaimed PS Vita original, you will have brand new gravity-shifting options and combat mechanics at your disposal. Kat can now use three gravity styles that add more variety and combat options: Normal, Lunar and Jupiter.
The story begins when a jester, Dhoulmagus, comes to Castle Trodain and steals the King’s sceptre. He then uses its power to turn his majesty into a troll, the Princess into a horse, and the castle inhabitants into plants. The only one left unscathed from this attack is a castle guard who escaped the curse and must now step up to save the kingdom he’s sworn to protect. Only by travelling the lands, recruiting allies, and following the trail of destruction that Dhoulmagus leaves in his wake will The Hero be able to retrieve the sceptre in order to restore Trodain back to its former glory.
