Secret of Mana

A remake of the 1993 Super Nintendo classic, Secret of Mana updates the classic action RPG with 3D graphics and updated controls. Players can choose to control Randi, Primm, or Popoi as they set out to re-energize the Mana Sword by visiting the eight Mana Temples. We’re looking forward to reliving this quest, and also experiencing the game in co-op.

Dynasty Warriors 9

The latest entry in Koei Tecmo and Omega Force’s hack-and-slash series, Dynasty Warriors 9 changes things up with both stealth elements and an open world environment that can be explored by foot, horseback, or boat. Both a day-night cycle and a dynamic weather system will also be included. We’re looking forward to taking down enemies by the hundreds, and also exploring this lively world.

Metal Gear Survive

Taking the series in a slightly different direction, Konami’s Metal Gear Survive is a survival action-adventure game that is set in an open world and features a cooperative multiplayer mode. The plot takes things in a new direction too, dealing with wormholes to alternate dimensions and zombie-like beings known as “creatures.” We’re looking forward to experiencing this game online and seeing exactly which direction the story will go.

Metal Gear Survive will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam on February 20, 2018.

Shadow of the Colossus

Developed by Bluepoint Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment, this remake of Shadow of the Colossus features ultra-high definition art assets. Everything has been remade from the ground-up, and a new control scheme will be available. Despite this, the ultimate goal of taking down the different Colossi still remains the same. We’re looking forward to seeing the changes made to the remake, and also experiencing the game in 4K resolution.

Shadow of the Colossus will come out for the PlayStation 4 on February 6, 2018.

What we at Gamers Heroes are looking forward to the most:

We are looking forward to Shadow of the Colossus the most. The original PlayStation 2 release was a classic, and the modern day trappings look to make a great game even better.
