New releases in Video Games of 2018 is going to be death of my wallet. Seriously. But Quarter 1 is looking especially awesome for Role Playing fans! While certain titles such as Monster Hunter World are already out in the occasional beta, other titles like Secret of Mana will have me waiting by my PS4 crying like a child while I wait for the game to drop.

If you aren’t a big Role Playing Game Fan, there are plenty of other Video Games of 2018 that might catch your interest as well. Fighting game fans have Street Fighter V Arcade Edition and Dragon Ball FighterZ to look forward to in mid January. Strategy fans also have Civilization VI: Rise and Fall coming in February to help them while away the hours of 2018. Other honorable mentions include ports of Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 to the Nintendo Switch on February 16 and Metal Gear Survive on the 20th. For a full list of all Video Games of 2018 Q1, feel free to scroll down to the bottom of the post for all releases from January – April 2018, and don’t forget to comment on your favorite title for the quarter!
