2018 is here! Happy New Year everybody! Now, onto the games.
As you'd expect, January is quite light on new releases, though as you get to the end of the month things pick up, especially if you're a PS4 owner.
Anyway, in case you're not aware of what you've got to look forward to, here are our top 5 picks for the month. These are the ones to watch out for in January!
Formats: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows
Release Date: 23rd January
Developer: Tokyo RPG Factory
Publisher: Square Enix
Considered a spiritual successor to I Am Setsuna, Lost Sphear is the second game from Square Enix's Tokyo RPG Factory. It was released in Japan last October, but arrives in the West this month to allow us to reminisce about JRPGs from the 90s nice and early in the year.
Featuring a tweaked version of the active time battle system found in I Am Setsuna and early Final Fantasy games, alongside a story which places you in the shoes of a young adventurer who's trying to find a way to defeat a mysterious destructive force, fans of the genre should find plenty to like about Lost Sphear. In fact, it's been likened to Chrono Trigger in many ways, which is certainly promising.
