5 Games We’re Looking Forward to in January
A love letter to days gone by, SEGA’s open-world adventure game Yakuza 0 takes gamers back to ‘80s Japan. Starring a noticeably younger Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima, players must uncover the truth behind the mysterious “Vacant Lot” incident. We’re looking forward to experiencing everything this world has to offer, especially its incredible variety of minigames.
Yakuza 0 will come out for the PlayStation 4 on January 24, 2017.
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue includes a remaster of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, as well as two new pieces of content in the form of Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover and Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage. We’re especially looking forward to the remade elements of Dream Drop Distance, which will use a card system in lieu of the touch screen controls found in the original.

Gravity Rush 2
Gamers will be able to bend gravity to their will once again with the upcoming release of Project Siren’s Gravity Rush 2. Though series mainstay Kat returns, everything from the mechanics to the world have been completely overhauled in this sequel. We’re looking forward to exploring its world, and also experimenting with the three different gravity types available.

Tales of Berseria
Bandai Namco’s long running “Tales of” JRPG series continues with the upcoming release of Tales of Berseria. Taking place in Holy Midgand Empire, players take control of the prisoner Velvet Crowe, who has been infected with the deadly Daemonblight disease. We’re looking forward to utilizing the series’ trademark “Liberation Motion Battle System,” and also experimenting with the new “Soul Gauge” mechanic.
Tales of Berseria will come out for the PlayStation 4 on January 24, 2017.
Resident Evil VII: Biohazard
Set four years after the events of Resident Evil 6 in the city of Dulvey, Louisiana, Resident Evil VII: Biohazard tells the tale of Ethan Winters and the search for his wife Mia. The developers stated that they want to return to the survival horror roots the series is known for, and have shifted the game to a first-person perspective to achieve that vision. We’re looking forward to seeing what kind of horror the developers have in store, and also experiencing the game via PlayStation VR.
Resident Evil VII: Biohazard will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 24, 2017.
