The gaming year is officially heating up as we head into March, with the month ahead being absolutely stacked with high-profile releases and new indie game launches.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty (March 3)
Team Ninja’s talent for brutal hack-and-slash action is on display again with the release of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty on March 3.
This game is a brand-new soul-like that mixes Chinese history and a dark fantasy world to explore. The game features Team Ninja’s high-risk, high-reward Morale Rank system, which goes to great lengths to encourage players to head out and grow stronger.
Castlevania Pack for Dead Cells
If you’d prefer a different kind of soul-like experience that also mixes in some retro gaming influences, then the Castlevania pack for Dead Cells will take you right back to Dracula’s castle for a throwdown with the lord of vampires.
The Last of Us Part 1 (PC Release)
PC gamers can add another PlayStation title to their collection with The Last of Us Part 1, and if you’re after a more personal type of drama that can only be solved inside with hurricanes off the top rope, then lace up your boots and get ready to headline Wrestlemania in WWE 2K23.
Peppa Pig: Globetrotting Adventure
The real big game of March is the return of an icon, a global force of nature known as Peppa Pig, who sets off on a globetrotting adventure.
Resident Evil 4 Remake
If Peppa’s trip around the world is too much for you to handle, you can dive into the dark atmosphere of Resident Evil 4 Remake instead.
After Dead Space Remake raised the bar for what a reborn game should be capable of and aim for, it’ll be fascinating to see how Resident Evil 4 Remake improves on the original and how it measures up to EA’s masterpiece.
Fitness Boxing: Fist of the North Star (March 2)
March 2 sees the release of Fitness Boxing: Fist of the North Star. This game lets you spar with the master of an ancient fighting style that uses lethal acupuncture punches to turn people into walking blood bombs.
In this Fist of the North Star spin-off for Switch, you get to team up with Kenshiro, take on rivals in battle mode, and get a great workout in the process as you become the next master of post-apocalyptic martial arts.
Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania DLC (March 6)
Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania DLC is set for release on March 6. This game is a love letter to the Castlevania franchise in the form of DLC for Dead Cells.
The gothic style of the Konami series is a match made in heaven with the game’s challenging Metroidvania gameplay. More stages, more weapons, and familiar faces all help to create a tempting excuse to pay Dracula a visit inside his castle.
WWE 2K23 (March 17)
Last year’s WWE 2K22 got the wrestling franchise back on track, and this year, the focus is on delivering another slobber-knocker of main-event action.
As usual, you’ll be able to choose from almost 200 superstars, control them in all kinds of unique match types, and build your own legend on the road to Wrestlemania.
For fans of WWE history, there’s the new story mode centered all around Cenation leader John Cena, chronicling his rise from OVW to the grandest stage of them all.
The big difference here though? You won’t be playing as Cena, but rather as the challengers who all sought to become legends by taking Big Match John down for the three-count.

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon (March 17)
A new Bayonetta game mere months after the last game first arrived? Oh, it’s true, but this new title is a spin-off prequel that swaps the over-the-top big-budget action of mainline entries for a more visually striking adventure that features isometric gameplay.
It’s a huge departure from the usual formula of Bayonetta games, but the chill storybook aesthetic and dual-protagonist gameplay mixed with some solid combat makes for a fascinating new direction for the series.
March 2023 is proving to be an exciting month for gamers, as several highly anticipated games are set to hit the shelves.
From the post-apocalyptic martial arts of “Fitness Boxing: Fist of the North Star” to the high-risk, high-reward gameplay of “Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty” and the thrilling world of WWE wrestling in “WWE 2K23”, there’s something for everyone.
Even fans of the beloved children’s character Peppa Pig can join in on the fun with “Peppa Pig: World Adventures”. With so many exciting new releases to choose from, March Madness 2023 is shaping up to be a month that gamers won’t soon forget.
