    My brain is like vice grip for certain things, and like swiss cheese for others, for the latter that often includes conceiving of things beyond the next few hours ahead of me (unless I'm already obsessed with them).

    This is a sincere question, but hey, might as well make a forums resource out of it! I know I'm not the only scatterbrain in here.

    ^1:

    >!

    Denotes a game which has been available to play as an Early Access game, but is getting an official full "1.0" release. I probably forgot about a lot of games for this so tag me so I can add the marker (if anyone but me cares)

    ^2:

    >!

    for all my fellow _baka gaijin*_ out there, it seems the _Yakuza_ series has officially dropped the "Yakuza" franchise title for its English localizations. Going forward, the series will be referred to in the English localization as "Like A Dragon," which is a transliteration of its domestic title, _Ryū ga Gotoku._

    >!

    I have preserved the romanization of the domestic title because I just personally don‘t like the translation of the title into English. If you don’t like that, well, you didn't think to make this post, so buzz off, buddy!

    >!

    This is quite possibly the most exciting development in confusing differences between domestic and localization titling conventions since Final Fantasies II/IV and III/VI!

    >!

    *-translator's note, baka gaijin means “Foreigner/Non-Japanese person who makes things all go according to keikaku”


    @“Gaagaagiins”#p94850 Street Fighter 6. You pick a date and I’ll take the over.

    Formally no date, but I’m assuming 2H’23.

    Anything without a formal announcement of either its intended release date or at least season/quarter I'll just put in the TBA category!

    out of the top of my head i can only think of sequels of games i have enjoyed in the past:

    Fuga Melodies of Steel 2
    Alan Wake 2
    Freedom Planet 2
    R Type Final 3

    >

    @“穴”#p94860 Freedom Planet 2

    Google is telling me that this came out this September!

    @“Gaagaagiins”#p94861 huh… i guess you are not the only one with a swiss cheese brain

    >

    @“穴”#p94862 huh… i guess you are not the only one with a swiss cheese brain

    I mean September 2022 is basically in 2023

    Resident Evil 4 Remake comes out March 24th!

    The Dragons Dogma 2 trailer is my most anticipated title of 2023.

    My list of games that comes next year and aren‘t on the list:


  • - Peripeteia (this isn’t sure because I thought it would come out in 2022 and it doesn‘t seem to have a date, but since it’s marked 2023 as a release date I'll put it up there).
  • - Sk8te Story
  • - Nine Souls (played it. Looks cool, a mixture between a metroidvania and a Soulslike game). Comes on Q2. It's the new game by the Taiwanese studio that made Detention and Devotion.
  • The first one is the only one I'm really hyped up about it, but the other two seem like game someone from IC would enjoy.
    I'll search for more.

    Been playing BOTW again after my 200+ hour save was deleted by children. What a game that is. My admiration has only grown on this new playthrough. It still stands up visually, even games from 2022 can look a lot worse.

    Just the atmosphere, sound and the playfulness of it all are remarkable considering the last 3d Zelda game before, by essentially the _same team_, was an extremely hand-holdy, slog. It just gets out of your way for the most part.

    I really wanted to enjoy Elden Ring in the same way but that just became so nerve-wracking that I ended up avoiding loads of stuff because I'm rubbish at games. All too hard for me.

    Anyway, what I meant to say is that I think, for the first time in my life, I'm going to book a day off work on 12th May and play the heck out of the sequel. Plus my birthday is 3 days beforehand so it'll feel all kinds of special.

    Here's a couple I was able to find off my Steam wishlist:

    **Q1:**
    _A Space for the Unbound_
    _Frogsong_
    _Hellscreen_
    _Like a Dragon: Ishin!_
    _Quartet_

    **Q2:**
    _Dordogne_
    _Planet of Lana_
    _Venba_

    **TBA:**
    _Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes_
    _Exophobia_
    _Gravity Circuit_
    _Isekai Cowboy_
    _Kitsune Tails_
    _Loddlenaut_
    _Overmorrow_
    _Oxenfree II: Lost Signals_
    _Recolit_
    _Snufkin: Melody of Moominvalley_
    _Violet Wisteria_ (says "Early 2023" – likely Q1 or Q2)

    I wonder when we'll start seeing some Q3s and Q4s?!

    @“Gaagaagiins”#p94850 Dead Space remake on 1/27/23!!!

    Fire Emblem Engage 1/20/23 too!

    Edit: I'm adding a bunch more stuff I just thought of!

    Forspoken [1/24/23]
    Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe [2/24/23]
    Like a Dragon: Ishin! [2/21/23]
    Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty [3/3/23]
    System Shock [March 2023]
    Season: A letter to the future [Q1 2023]
    The Invincible [2023]
    Bomb Rush Cyberfunk [Summer 2023]
    10 Dead Doves [2023]
    Decarnation [2023]

    Like @"Funbil"#714 I just went through my steam wishlist, hence some of the vague '2023' dates.

    A few more that spring to mind for February and March:

    Theatrhythm: Final Bar Line (Feb)
    Octopath Traveler 2 (Feb)
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure Overdue Official Localisation Edition (March)

    My personal Hot Shit list includes:

    All three above
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails into Reverie
    Like a Dragons Ishin, Gaiden, 8
    Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

    @Gaagaagiins Yes, it's that Peripeteia.

    Caves of Qud should be getting a full release in 2023 after around a decade in early access.

    Cave's Touhou game is coming out mid 2023

    Senjin Aleste......maybe gets a console release? Crossing my fingers at least

    @“LeFish”#p95050 Big Falcom year for English releases. Reverie, Azure, and Nayuta(the one I'm personally most excited about).

    Ys X probably gonna be 2023 as well in Japan.

    Good to have a post I can tab over to quickly to see all the games coming up next year. Looks like I'll be wanting to play…at least 20 of them?

    Pikmin 4 is another game coming out with the nebulous release window of 2023, but I am not getting my hopes up for the fourth time.

    Also, I think the XBox ~~Direct~~ Presentation that Silksong was shown off at this year said that every game therein was going to be released in the next 12 months. That was at least a few months ago now, so I'm hoping for the Hollow Knight players in my orbit that that's still the case - delays are always a possibility.

    Don't miss out on the hot new game SURMOUNT! Coming out sometime in 2023.
