In the ever-expanding world of video games, 2018 is already off to a great start. In January we saw titles such as Monster Hunter: World and Dragon Ball Fighter Z arrive on PS4 and Xbox One consoles. February brought us the much-anticipated re-release of the beautifully remastered Shadow of The Colossus and the controversial Metal Gear Survive. Now as we make our way through March there are several game releases you should be aware of. Some are new franchises and some remastered versions of old friends but they all will provide you with hours of entertaining gameplay.
Devil May Cry HD Collection
If you are playing Monster Hunter: World you are probably familiar with another time-tested Capcom franchise, Devil May Cry. The franchise is loosely based on the poem by Divine Comedy by the Italian poet, Dante Alighieri, who lends his name to the games lead character, Dante. The game’s story follows Dante as he attempts to hack and slash Demons into oblivion in the hopes of avenging his mother’s death.
Originally released in 2001, the high definition release includes Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2 and Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening Special Edition. If you are a Twitch Prime user (or have an Amazon Prime account) and play on PC you can already access this new release. For those wishing to replay or explore the world for the first time on PS4 and Xbox One will have to wait until March 13.
