2019 has officially begun, that means people will start on their temporary New Year’s Resolutions and a lot more video games will release. If you haven’t played all the games on your back catalog get ready to add some more to the list. Here are the top 5 games coming out this January 2019.


5. Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story 3DS

A remake of one of the best games on the Nintendo DS
Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story not only features the same game released in 2009 but adds new content. Featuring Bowser Jr. players can take on a brand new adventure similar to the Search for Bowser in Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga’s remake.

4. The Walking Dead: The Final Season Episode 3: Broken Toys

Following Telltale’s closure the former staff of the acclaimed studio was left with nothing, thankfully the gaming community banded together to aid those affected to find new employment elsewhere. Clementine’s adventure was also effected as Telltale’s closure meant that that her final adventure would go unfinished, until Skybound stepped forward. The studio took over the rights for the series and the next episode is set to release this January 15th.

As the penultimate episode, Broken Toys will set up the finale for The Walking Dead: The Final Season and fans already have many theories of what will occur.

3. Life is Strange 2: Episode 2 Rules

Since its release back in 2018 fans have been relentless in asking Dontnod about the next episode for Life is Strange 2. Back in December, it was confirmed that Rules would be releasing this January. Sean and Daniel were instant hits and fans eagerly await how the 2 will survive their journey to Mexico following the events of the first episode. The only issue is that once this episode ends fans will ask when the next one will begin.

2. Resident Evil 2 2019

Capcom is bringing one of the best games in their library and one of the best survival-horror games of all time, Resident Evil 2. As a remake of the original players can expect the same adventure with modern graphics but additional content never featured in the original. We had the chance to play through this and we can say it captures the tensions and horror of the original. Most importantly, it’s bloody and not for the weak willed.

  1. Kingdom Hearts III

It’s been 13 years since Kingdom Hearts II released back on the PlayStation 2. Since then we’ve gotten a lot of prequels, remakes, and a Nintendo 3DS title that bridged Kingdom Hearts II to the third game. Within a few weeks we’ll get to see the conclusion to Sora’s adventure and if you want to know if Kingdom Hearts III was worth the wait, check out our preview here.
