As the world struggles to solve the COVID-19 pandemic, the game industry tends to suffer from technological difficulties. Many important games have been postponed, although other projects have been scrapped. Usually, March is a busy month when it comes to game updates, but 2021 is a bit of an anomaly.
We don’t have any big releases in March, even though we do have quite a few re-releases that might comfort a lot of players. In either case, below are some of the most relevant titles that should be published in March, but keep in mind that some of them might be postponed.
The first major game to be published next month is Stronghold: Warlords, which will be released on PC on March 9, the same day as Apex Legends will be released on Nintendo Switch. Pascal’s Wager: Definitive Edition is expected to appear on the PC on March 12, next to Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, which is being updated to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, and a release on Nintendo Switch.
Next up in line is Mundaun and Stubb’s Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse launched on PC and launched on PC and all consoles on March 16th. Two days later, on March 18th, we have two game releases: Minute of Islands (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch) and Neurodeck (PC, Nintendo Switch).
EA’s Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighbourville Full Version is expected to appear on Nintendo Switch on March 19, followed by Tunche (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch) on March 23, and Tales from the Borderlands (Nintendo Switch) on March 24.
Dandy Ace will be running on PC on March 25, while It Takes Two will be running on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on March 26. Another significant update planned for next month is Monster Hunter Rise for Nintendo Switch, which will be released on March 26. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 are headed to the new generation consoles on the same day.
If you enjoyed the Kingdom Hearts series, we can’t recommend enough Balan Wonderworld to be released on the PC and all consoles on March 26. Speaking of the Kingdom Hearts series, four games are being ported to the PC and should be released on the 30th of March: Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5+2.5 Remix, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Kingdom Hearts 3 + Re Mind, and Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory.
March finishes with two less significant updates, so if you’re indie, you’ll actually want to try out Evil Genius 2: World Conquest (PC) and Narita Boy (PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch) on March 30.
Last but not least, Disco Elysium: The Final Cut is scheduled to be released on PC, PlayStation 4/5 in March, but the game doesn’t have an exact release date yet, so keep your eyes open for more on this one.
