A new year means a slew of new games. On that note, here are 5 games we’re looking forward to in January. Oh, and we won’t make you click through five pages to look at the entire list.
5 Games We’re Looking Forward to in January
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
Capcom is giving their 2016 fighter a complete overhaul with the release of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Included in the game are codes for all of the DLC characters from seasons 1 and 2, new interface graphics, Arcade Mode and Extra Battle Mode, and an extra V-Trigger per character. We’re looking forward to diving in and playing around with all of these changes.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will come out for the PlayStation 4 and PC on January 16, 2018.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT
Square-Enix set out to create a fighting game with action RPG in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Players will be able to throw down as their favorite Final Fantasy characters, with characters divided into four combat classes. The third game in the series, this release places a focus on three-on-three combat, with players able to switch which character they actively control while the in-game AI controls the other two. We’re looking forward to experiencing this combat system firsthand, and also experiencing the game’s story elements.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will come out for the PlayStation 4 on January 30, 2018.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory
The latest game in the long-running Digimon series, Bandai Namco’s Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Hacker’s Memory has players taking control of the Digimon trainer Keisuke Amazawa. Featuring 320 creatures in total, players can explore a near-future version of Shibuya, Japan and the advanced Internet known as Cyberspace Eden, which people can enter. We’re looking forward to exploring this JRPG’s world, and also seeing what the story has to offer.
Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory will come out for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on January 19, 2018.
Dragon Ball FighterZ
Developed by Arc System Works and published by Bandai Namco, Dragon Ball FighterZ takes liberal cues from the Marvel vs. Capcom and Guilty Gear fighting game series. Players can take control of the character of their choice from Akira Toriyama’s anime series, fighting in a three-on-three setup. Moves include the “Vanish,” “Dragon Rush,” and “Super Dash” maneuvers. We’re looking forward to fighting as our favorite characters, and also experiencing the original story mode.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26, 2018.
Monster Hunter: World
The fifth title in Capcom’s Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter: World features much larger maps, seamless transitions between zones, four-player online co-op, and the ability to play with others worldwide. Players take control of a Hunter, which is tasked by the “Research Commission” to hunt down and either kill or capture large monsters that roam outside of Astera. We’re looking forward to experiencing the game’s story mode and achieving a higher rank.
Monster Hunter: World will come out for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26, 2018.

We are looking forward to Monster Hunter: World the most. The series is known for its tremendous replay value, and we are looking forward to getting better gear and fighting larger monsters.
