What to be excited for:
"Sea of Thieves"
"Sea of Thieves"
Sea of Thieves allows its players to plunder and adventure as a crew of pirates. The newest Rare IP will be online and cooperative, meaning you can cause swashbuckling mischief with friends. The game will also be cross platform for players on Xbox One and Windows 10. Win win. The game releases March 20 and is available with Xbox Game Pass.
Detective Pikachu is perhaps the Pokémon game that no one knew they wanted but definitely needed. The game stars a talking Pikachu, indistiguishable from the typical series mascot expect for an adorable Sherlock Holmes-esque cap and deep full-grown man voice. As the name of the game might suggest, players will solve mysterys with this very special Pikachu and work to "crack the conspiracy." Detective Pikachu comes out March 23 to the Nintendo 3DS.
"Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom"
The first Ni no Kuni released in 2010 and revealed a Studio Ghibli world of magic and adventure. The sequel Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom will take players back to this world but hundreds of years in the future. Those who have gotten their hands on the game claim it to have a darker tone than the original, but say it still maintains the charm and the world will feel familiar to returning gamers. Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom release on the PlayStation 4 and PC on March 23.
