The Elder Scrolls Online DLC

PC, Stadia — March 8; PS4, Xbox One — March 16

Apex Legends

Switch — March 9

Just over two years ago, this free-to-play battle royale was released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This month it’ll become available on the Switch for the first time. Late last year, EA made cross-play available for players of the game to play with friends regardless of whether they were on PC, PlayStation or Xbox. When the cross-play announcement was made last summer, EA announced that Apex was coming to the Switch too, and that crossplay would be available for players on the Nintendo console as well.

Crash Bandicoot 4

PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch — March 12

The latest game in the Crash Bandicoot series arrives on next-gen consoles this month. The game was originally released on PS4 and Xbox One last fall. This game features Crash and his sister Coco as they attempt to recover the Quantum Masks. This year also marks the series’ 25th anniversary.

Fun fact: Crash Bandicoot’s imminent release on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S prompted Tony Hawk himself to publicly push for last year’s Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 to hit next-gen consoles too … and it worked!


Marvel’s Avengers

PS5, Xbox Series X/S — March 18

This game was launched to much fanfare last September after a beta in August. This month’s release is the next-gen console version. In the game, you get to play as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hulk on Miss Marvel in a series of co-op missions.

In December, a Hawkeye DLC featuring Kate Bishop was released, adding to the slate of playable characters. The next-gen version being released this month also includes the release of another Hawkeye DLC and playable character, Clint Barnes. Spider-Man will be another playable character in the game at some point later this year, though he will be available only on PlayStation.


Overcooked! All You Can Eat

PS5, Xbox One, Switch, PC — March 23

This game bundles Overcooked, Overcooked 2 and some additional content in a remastered format. The whimsical game features players cooking increasingly complicated recipes within a certain time limit in chaotic kitchen environments. One of this game’s cool new features is the addition of accessibility options such as dyslexic-friendly text and color blindness options.

All You Can Eat is already available on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, so this release is for previous-gen consoles and the Switch. Not only is this game coming to new platforms, but Ghost Town Games announced that cross-play, an increasingly common feature for multiplayer games, is coming soon.


Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2

PS5, Xbox series X/S — March 26

A remastered version of the classic skateboarding games featuring Tony Hawk that originally came out two decades ago was released last fall. This month, THPS 1+2 is releasing for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Plus, a Switch version will be releasing later this year.


Monster Hunter Rise

Switch — March 26

The next game in the Monster Hunter series is coming exclusively to the Switch this month. This game is set in the ninja-inspired world of Kamura Village, and you can play on your own or hunt monsters with friends. Plenty of monsters from previous games will be in Rise as well as some new ones. Among the new features are Wyvern Riding, in which you can mount monsters, Wirebugs to help traverse the world, and Palamutes, which are dog-like companions that will serve as your mount.

Kingdom Hearts

PC — March 30

Kingdom Hearts is finally coming to PC this month. The beloved collaboration between Square Enix and Disney — featuring Sora, Donald and Goofy — first released nearly two decades ago and has spawned multiple games and appeared on seemingly every platform except PC, until now. The series will be released in four bundles: Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Kingdom Hearts 3 + Re Mind DLC and Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory.
