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.

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.

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.
