We may have thought February brought in many lists of games, and probably by now we are still playing Elden Ring ourselves to this day. Yet to our surprise, March 2022 comes with a jam-packed assortment of games genres be it indie, racing, wrestling, slash ’em up, action RPG, and even Tactical RPG. We’ve put together a list of games below that we thought might be interesting to play once they’re released.
The upcoming action RPG produced by Square Enix and developed by PlatinumGames promises a refined multiplayer high-octane hack-and-slash like Nier Automata. Babylon’s Fall is heading your way on March 3rd, 2022 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC Steam. Demos are out now on PS4 and PS5 to try it out as well before making a purchase decision.
Featuring unique visuals referred to as the original “Brushwork Filter” of reminiscent of living medieval oil paintings to the world. Play as a Sentinel with your friends as you’ll gain the ability to wield a mighty arsenal of up to four weapons to experiment on with multiple arrays of combo.
If Tactics Ogre or Final Fantasy Tactics was your favourite, the upcoming title will definitely scratch that classic itch as Tactical RPG Triangle Strategy by Square Enix, is scheduled to be released on March 4th, 2022 on Nintendo Switch. Currently, Triangle Strategy also comes with a prologue demo (Chapters 1-3) for anyone to try out before emptying their wallets.
In addition to decent voice acting, Triangle Strategy HD-2D visual style graphics includes sparkling waters, shimmering pixelated art, as well as animated flowing magic attacks, where the key to success is positioning your units effectively – dealing a follow up the damage by other adjacent ally units on the opposite side of the enemy. While I have yet encountered any random combat (for grinding purposes), Triangle Strategy has options for encampments (mock-up battles), looking into the cities for clues, and hidden shiny loots that can be a challenge hidden among the shimmering designed environment.

I’m pretty stoked about this title because it offers me a world similar to Shin Megami Tensei, but in an FPS environment shooting magical bullets right at the faces of ghosts or demons that are out to get you, and best of all it’s set in Tokyo, not Mars. Developer Tango Gameworks and publisher Bethesda Softworks confirm GhostWire: Tokyo to be coming to PC and PlayStation 5 on March 25th, 2022.
