January usually sees a scarcity of new game releases, providing a breather before the year’s gaming frenzy. This time, however, there’s a manageable number of exciting releases. Yakuza enthusiasts can delve into the next chapter of the revamped Like a Dragon series. A standout from the previous PlayStation era is set to shine with a PS5 upgrade, and fighting game aficionados can unleash their skills with the return of Tekken. Amidst these heavyweights, smaller indie and early access titles are making their mark on PC and consoles. VR enthusiasts can explore Bulletstorm in virtual reality, while Palworld offers a unique, weaponized twist on pocket monsters.
