Games of March 2023

Here's a brief look at all the games coming in March, 2023!

March isn’t as full as February, but it has a couple of serious gems in it. Whether you still itch for that Remaster or Remake business model that’s so popular now, or are fishing for something Indie and different and engaging, you’re definitely going to find it in March. 2023 continues to roll on as one of the most memorable years in gaming in recent times and we’re all just sitting here, keys at our fingertips, or controllers in our hands.

We won’t dwell, here’s what you can expect to play as Autumn comes into effect in Australia.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

Platform: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: March 3

From Team Ninja this action-RPG takes us back to Ancient China with a heady focus on in-tight combat utilising ancient weapons and fighting styles. It fuses real-world information in a fantasy setting with an art style to die for. Like many ambitious games of this nature, this could go either way but we’ve liked what we’ve seen of it so far.

Hotel Renovator

Platform: PC (consoles later in the year)
Release Date: March 7

A classic sim game featuring a tedious task as its hook and loop, only coming unexpectedly from Focus Home Interactive, this game does as its titular descriptor tells you. Sure, there’s some sort of story here but really, we play these games either for the novelty or because we are very, very sick individuals. Demo, clean, repaint, remodel, repeat. Can’t wait.

Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse

Platform: PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: March 8

Originally released on the Wii, this psychological Japanese horror utilises a camera and torch as its main points of interaction where the player fends off and fights ghosts. And with a description like that you could almost also call the game “grown up scary as shit Luigi’s Mansion, but truthfully there’s some really interesting aspects to this classic which now sees itself updated for modern consoles and ready for a new audience. Definitely one for fans of obscure horror.

Clash: Artifacts of Chaos

Platform: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: March 9

This Indie which features a sketcherly style that is utterly unique is best described as a mashup of ideas centring around a fantastical (and we mean fantastical) adventure. Third and first-person options, unique enemy and character encounters and just a lot of oddity make up much of what this game is about, which is just being something a bit… different. We’re all-in for the art-style alone.

Terminal Velocity: Boosted Edition

Platform: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: March 14

We’re a bit old and so when we see games from yesteryear making their way to modern platforms with the words “running natively” we tend to stand up and listen. This classic X-Wing-like is a sci fi combat shooter that has had a basic overhaul for new machines, but still looks as classic as it did back in 1995. This one is for the oldies like us, or modern videogame historians.


Platform: Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: March 14

The smash hit Early Access PC game from Coffee Stain finally makes its way to consoles by way of Xbox’s platforms and will feature full cross-play across the entire playing ecosystem. Team up, resource gather, build and explore in this Viking-fueled adventure that captured the hearts and imaginations of countless PC players. And with Game Pass in the mix, it’s a straight-up no-brainer.

Anno 1800

Platform: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: March 16

The classic historical city builder from Ubisoft comes to console for the first time in its long and rich life. Anno 1800 lets you live out one of the most interesting periods in time where the industrial revolution and discovery and science were leading people out of its darker history and rapidly into an ever-changing and exciting future. And that’s a sales pitch we can get behind.

WWE 2K23

Platform: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: March 17

The annual entry in 2K’s WWE 2K franchise sees a number of new faces, and the loss of some older ones. Not a lot yet known about all of its features, but year on year Visual Concepts innovates and iterates on each entry so we expect there to be some cool stuff in this one. You just need to live with the fact that Logan Paul is now a videogame character.

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon

Platform: Nintendo Switch
Release Date: March 17

While we didn’t have the most fun with Bayonetta 3, this origin story featuring a near chibi version of the *ahem* titular character looks like a lot of fun. Taking place in an enchanted forest and presented as an old-school isometric platformer, Bayonette Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon could become a new way to explore the insane world of Platinum’s beloved witch.

Resident Evil 4 Remake

Platform: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X
Release Date: March 24

A from the ground up remake of the seminal classic from Shinji Mikami, Resident Evil 4 Remake hopes to do with that game what the Resident Evil 2 Remake did for Leon’s first misadventure. This is not a carbon copy of the original and features a number of differences that should set it apart from 2005’s masterpiece. It will be scrutinised within an inch of its life, but that’s the survival horror Capcom wants to live, so…

Crime Boss: Rockay City

Platform: PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: March 28

Let’s all be honest here. You’re into this because it’s both a heist game and a shooter and it also features a number of likenesses and crime bosses and maybe, just maybe, because “Rockay” resembles Rockstar and it has some presentation and setup kinsmanship with GTA. We are too, so we totally get it, but the jury is heavily out on this one, especially after its awkward introduction at last year’s The Game Awards.

The Last of Us Part 1 Remastered

Platform: PC
Release Date: March 28

At this point we’re not sure this needs any sort of introduction, especially if you’re knee-deep into the HBO adaptation (no spoilers). So this will be short and sweet -- this remaster of Naughty Dog’s original riff on post-apocalyptia is fully PC-ised and takes full advantage of the desktop's most superior power over consoles. What we find most fascinating, however, is that Naughty Dog has oft referenced Resident Evil 4 as an inspiration for TLoU, and that they’re out so close to each other is either serendipitous or something else… you be the judge.


Platform: PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: March 29

Already one of our favourite games of the year, Dredge from NZ-based Indie Black Salt Games and Team17 is a fishing and exploration game that meshes a number of different elements to gameplay makeup with surprisingly refreshing results. Atmospheric horror built from Lovecraftian tropes and concepts keeps the game’s basic mechanic ticking away in a broken background you just know isn’t right. It’s also a stunningly-presented low poly, lo-fi experience that capitalises on all of its best parts. Don’t miss this one.

System Shock Remake

Platform: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S
Release Date: No Date

Another game that needs no introduction (depending on your date of birth), and one suddenly very poignant as we ponder life with AI and bots and computer-generated sentience. System Shock is a sci fi shooter-RPG set on a space station in the far off future. The station’s AI, SHODAN, has gone rogue and now considers itself a god, leaving you as a god slayer. Choice and consequence and a world with functioning and exploitable systems makes up the larger experience here. And if you’ve ever wanted to know where key games BioShock and Dead Space got their first chops from, it’s this.

TLOU Pt I Remake, I was a bit confused because you stated the platform as the PS5 (which I have played it on) but this is the PC version coming out on the 29th.
