January 2023 Video Game + DLC Releases

Hello, Gamers! Happy New Year and welcome to 2023. December was a rough month for many people, so I hope we can start off 2023 on a positive note. As I said in my last post, the first bit of January will be me getting caught up on articles I meant to write in December. After that, I’ll be all caught up! 

Starting the year off strong, let’s get January’s releases out of the way, and then I’ll share what games are releasing (or have already released) that I’m excited about. January usually isn’t a very big month for releases, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few hidden gems releasing this month.

Games I’m Excited For

Another big month for indie titles, but there are a few AAA games this time around as well. A lot of the indie titles actually do look relatively interesting as well. However, the titles releasing this month that I’m the most excited for are:

  • Forspoken
  • Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable
  • Persona 4 Golden
  • Fire Emblem Engage

I’m not as thrilled about Engage as I am about the other titles. My honest opinion about what I have seen of the story so far is that it’s a rehash of Fire Emblem Awakening and Fire Emblem Heroes with a new coat of paint. I am willing to go into it with an open mind though.

 While I already have access to P3P and P4G, it’s nice to see them remastered for modern audiences and convenience. Forspoken is my heavy hitter this month, and I’m really looking forward to trying to get a hold of it and playing it. Just hoping that my PC doesn’t hate me for it (PC gamers know my pain).

Wrapping Up

Apologies about the first week of January 2023 being all video game releases for this month and last month, but I suppose it’s a good way to start things off. I have finally finished Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, so be on the lookout for that review. This is all I have for now. Later, Gamers!
