After a packed January, with Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter: World launching on the same day, February is a month of remasters and re-releases. Shadow of the Colossus is first, followed by Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 on Nintendo Switch. There’s also 2016’s Owlboy coming to Switch and the Secret of Mana remake. If you’re looking for a new game, there’s Metal Gear spinoff Metal Gear Survive coming this month as well.

Here’s a run-through of what you can expect in the month of February, along with its most notable releases. For a full list of all the big games coming out during the rest of this year, check out our comprehensive 2018 game release date list.
