Shop Watch February 2020

We’ve got one title, but that’s okay – I can pad this.

In the meantime, the end of January had me finish a game only to reveal a nasty, dirty and foul cliffhanger. Seriously, if a game ends on a damn cliffhanger and the next title is ready to go; license that shit. Do some marketing. Release a one-two punch. GIVE IT TO ME. I just beat a game with the most excessive cliffhanger I have ever experienced in media* and I am jonesing hard for the next, unannounced title in the series. An End of Saga; if you will.

Not a standalone game, but the DLC for Kingdom Hearts III – titled Re:Mind and priced like a DS game – came out at the end of last month. This DLC picks up from KHIII‘s frustrating ending; culminating in an endless cycle of spinoffs for life. As a side note: This is not the title mentioned above. This is the bitterness of that title leaking out, though.

Rune Factory 4 Special hits shelves in the final week of February. This Switch re-release also includes additional cutscenes.

The padding: There is a Yakuza collection for PS4 in order to play all of the games on said system. It was just released.

Next week sees the Megaman Zero/ZX collection. Some of these games are some decently hard Metroidvania style side scrollers; and those type of secret-laden games tend to cross over well with RPG fans.

That’s it for this month. Enjoy.
