Among the many novelties of March 2023, Resident Evil 4 has clearly emerged as the most anticipated game of the month, by our readers and editorial staff.
The coming month also promises to keep us glued to our screens for several hours, considering the amount of interesting news that’s on the way, including unreleased titles, diversions, and various remakes. Among the many possibilities, there is a title capable of making everyone agree: Resident Evil 4 is the most anticipated game of March 2023, to be the clear winner both in the editorial poll and in the poll aimed at Multiplayer.it readers. When dealing with an iconic series of this magnitude, it’s hard for anything different to emerge: Capcom’s remastered series has so far been unstoppable in terms of commercial success, although critics have rewarded the second chapter more than the third, moreover Resident Evil 4. It remains a particularly beloved title even by those who aren’t really fans of the first hour of survival horror par excellence.
However, the recommendation is the same we’ve made on many other occasions, just in case you need it: don’t let your guard down because really great games arrive from all directions and in all genres during the month of March 2023.
In this case too, we are dealing with both high-level titles, which are naturally able to capture the attention of large segments of the audience, and perhaps smaller games that are able to gain control over specialized players, and maintain a high level of quality. The average for this seems very high, even if it is clear that more in-depth direct evidence is still missing, which will arrive over the next few weeks. There might also be room for more surprises, considering the instant release trend, “shadow drops,” is establishing itself and some unexpected games to shuffle the cards can come to the table.
Most anticipated by the editorial board
There was some competition in the internal vote of Editorial board, but in the end, Resident Evil 4 won by a certain margin, despite the fact that there was certainly no shortage of staunch supporters for the other titles in March 2023 as well. It’s true that rewarding the remake in the face of so many brand-new proposals might seem like a rather conservative choice, but when it comes to the return of the history-making action-and-survival-horror game, there’s a bit of work to be done. On the other hand, anyone who was already a gamer at the time of the Gamecube can’t forget Resident Evil 4’s influence on the common imagination and we can’t wait to see it again in this new, evolving form, although it’s clear that the genre appeal will have nothing to do with the original that doesn’t. is forgotten. On the one hand, the quality shown in the previous installments of the series should ensure this, and the curiosity to get your hands on, even after seeing quite a bit so far, is really nice.
In second place is another major nominee for the most anticipated game of the month, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, which is really close to the top. Team Ninja’s RPG with soul-like elements is certainly one of the most interesting novelties of this early part of 2023, with all it takes to be a hit, at least with the critics.
Considering what the team has achieved with Niohs, we can also expect great things from this new game with a Chinese historical / mythological setting, which can also count on really impressive atmospheres, scenarios and characters, as well as gameplay that looks perfectly etched. Third place for another potential big returner: System Shock Remastered, which aims to restructure and bring a true timeless classic of video games to modern audiences, and which marks the starting point for FPS-RPG (or “immersive sim”) hybrid games. There may be doubts about Nightdive Studio’s reinterpretation, but Starting Point is a great classic that deserves to be rediscovered even by new users.
Most anticipated by readers
The results of the survey were also released to Multiplayer.it readers It came out sharply in favor of Resident Evil 4, which once again emerged as the most anticipated game of March 2023 by some margin. Here too, the explanation is simple: it is a title entered into legend, so ancient as to be considered a classic but also modern enough to be restored almost in its original form, albeit with a major technical update. This creates a certain curiosity: given the profound changes Capcom applied to Resident Evil 2 and 3 for their remakes, Resident Evil 4 seems less subject to drastic changes, and so may be particularly suitable for more traditional audiences, considering that in itself it was already An out-of-the-box chapter compared to the classic structure of the series. All this leads to waiting for him with some impatience, which justifies his first position in the ranking.
The second most anticipated game, also in this case a short distance away, turns out to be Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, which promises to continue the Japanese action RPG tradition thanks to brand new intellectual property from Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo. In this case, the prediction is also supported by some concrete facts: the game recently got a publicly available demo that gave us a better idea of this new production from the creators of Nioh, and the answer was largely positive.
So the wait for Wo Long is real, because we know what it is and can’t wait to get more, also considering how the game is available on day one on Xbox Game Pass. Here too, in third place, we find System Shock Remastered, which in fact precisely replicates the platform that also emerged from the editorial vote, in a perfect consistency not often seen on these pages. Among the top three, the first game to appear is The Last of Us Part I on PC.
