Top 5 Video Games Arriving in February 2023

3. Like a Dragon: Ishin! – February 21

The Yakuza franchise is officially changing its name to Like a Dragon, which is its Japanese name. Like a Dragon: Ishin! is a remake of a Japanese-only PS3 game, that sets the series in Edo Period Japan. It will feature action gameplay closer to Yakuza 1-6, as opposed to the turn-based RPG combat of Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Even though the protagonist is the historical figure Sakamoto Ryōma, he looks just like longtime Yakuza series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu. Like a Dragon: Ishin! will be available for everything except the Switch.

2. Octopath Traveler II – February 24

The original Octopath Traveler was one of the great early Nintendo Switch exclusives. It was a JRPG that featured 8 protagonists, and the player could choose which one to start with, and in what order they wanted to gather the other 7. It also pioneered the HD-2D graphic style that has captured every retro game heart on the planet. Octopath Traveler II will feature all those elements but will have a brand new story that completely stands on its own. It also won’t be a Switch exclusive and will be available for both PlayStations and PC, in addition to the Switch.

1. Hogwarts Legacy – February 10

The hype behind Hogwarts Legacy is very strong. It’s an RPG that allows players to become a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Choose a house, attend classes, learn spells, and explore the Wizarding World. This game sounds like a dream come true for a lot of Harry Potter fans. If it’s as good as it looks, it will likely be a gateway into video games for many Harry Potter book and film fans across the globe. It’s an easy choice for #1 in the Top 5 Video Games Arriving in February 2023. Hogwarts Legacy will be available for all consoles and PC.
