No, your face is an entire seven days late with this feature LEAVE ME ALONE MOM! Ahem, anyway… It ain’t just a new month, but a whole new year! The cycle begins anew, the hype for forthcoming games is currently at a far more stable level as AAA hibernation sets in and the road to E3 has yet to begin. In other words, January is a bit of a quiet month for video games. Or is it?

As usual though, Capcom is spearheading a push towards early dominance as the Japanese developer prepares to resurrect one of their creepiest franchises yet again with a HDelicious remake of Resident Evil 2. They’re going to have some sizable competition this year however, as Square Enix is finally unleashing the third chapter in the Kingdom Hearts franchise, a series with a storyline so convoluted that it comes with an entire crate of painkillers to swallow so that your head doesn’t explode from being exposed to too much exposition.

Amidst the heavyweights, there’re also a few other gems waiting to be played. Here’s the full line-up for January 2019:
