This episode of New Releases covers the biggest games of February, and the month of love is bringing some titles you might just fall head over heels for. Crackdown 3 is finally arriving after a handful of delays, while Metro Exodus actually moved to an earlier release date. Anime and manga fans can dig into Jump Force, and those who missed out on the original Ace Attorney releases can check out the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy. Last but not least, BioWare is flying back onto the scene with its latest adventure, Anthem.

Metro Exodus — February 15

Metro Exodus is a departure for the series–and not just because Artyom and company are literally leaving Moscow. This entry leans into open-world level design: each stop along the train track is full of story missions and side quests to complete, supplies to scavenge, and mutated monsters to fend off.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy — February 21

For the uninitiated, the Phoenix Wright series involves finding evidence, questioning witnesses, and bringing everything together in the courtroom to defend your client. This collection includes the first three games in the series–Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Justice for All, and Trials and Tribulations–in pretty HD. Objection!

Anthem — February 22

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

Anthem is breaking new ground for BioWare: this multiplayer-focused shooter takes place in a shared world. You’ll still get a healthy dose of role-playing via quests and branching dialogue, but you’ll be suiting up for missions in one of four Javelins. Each has its own weapons and abilities, and you can customize the look of each suit too.

These are some of the biggest games of February, but they’re far from the only ones coming this month. On the next episode, we’ll revisit a few of these titles and dig into some others, like Trials Rising and Far Cry New Dawn.
