Updated: Mar 3
March is merely days away now and that means that a new month of games, movies, and TV shows is merely days away too. March is a bit of a dry month for releases of any kind so there are some great things on this list but given that there's not that much coming out I've had to make the top ten a top eight best releases of the upcoming month.
If you want to support the site you can order (and pre-order) some of the games on this list with our Amazon affiliate link, it will cost you no extra but we get a nice little kickback for it!
As with last time this is in absolutely no order let's get to it.
The Batman (movie)
I've been writing about The Batman since the start of this website and I've made my thoughts clear throughout, The Batman is going to be excellent. It's out on the 4th of March and if you want to know more about it you can click this link. Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, and Paul Dano all star in the world's greatest detective's first solo outing since the Nolan trilogy wrapped up. This is definitely not one to miss.
Moon Knight (Disney+ show)
Moon Knight comes at the end of March so we still have a bit of a wait to go for this one. Oscar Isaac is making his debut as Marvel's Moon Knight, I'm personally a huge fan of the character so I'm looking forward to this one a huge amount. Moon Knight seems to be bringing Marvel TV back to its gritty Daredevil-esque ways so this is a must watch for fans of that side of the Marvel universe or anyone that enjoys a slightly darker take on the superhero genre. Moon Knight also feels like a great jumping on point for the new phase of the MCU so don't be put off if you're not a huge fan of the franchise.
Granturismo 7 (game)
Granturismo 7 is a bit different to any other games on the list, it's the only sports simulation game here. The franchise has a very dedicated following already but Granturismo 7 is a great point to join in on, it's the first numbered installment for 9 years and is the first of the next gen console sim racers (Forza and GRID are arcade racers). The Granturismo series has never really had a flat out bad title (Sport was a bit empty but was still excellent) and 7 looks like the biggest and best entry yet so if you're a Playstation gamer looking for a new driving game this March look no further.
Grand Theft Auto V next gen release (game)
I'm not saying that this release is a needed one or one that will actually be worthwhile but to leave any Grand Theft Auto release needed or otherwise off an anticipated release would be crazy. Grand Theft Auto V online will be available separately to the game as well so if you're not interested in replaying the story mode then there's still something new for you to be found here. The best thing is that for PS5 players GTA online will actually be free to download and keep if you get there in the first three months. Look forward to performance and graphical enhancements for the best selling piece of media ever this month.
Ghostwire: Tokyo (game)
Ghostwire: Tokyo is a first person action adventure game running in the Unreal engine from Bethesda and Tango Gameworks (who made the excellent Evil Within series). You'll find yourself moving through Tokyo using magic and martial arts to fight all sorts of ghosts and spirits, awesome right? The story and art style of the game is heavily inspired by Japanese folklore so if games like Ghost of Tsushima or Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice are your thing then Ghostwire is the game for you to pick up this month. I'm personally very much looking forward to Ghostwire's release and I think it could be a surprisingly great game even if it is slipping under the radar a little bit right now.
WWE 2K22 (game)
The WWE 2K series has been on a break since 2019 so this game has been three years in the making. 2K nailed the transition to next gen with the NBA series so WWE should be no different. Even if you're not a fan of professional wrestling these games make for great fun and are at their absolute best when playing with friends. The 2K sports games are never cheap when they release and while you do absolutely get a premium game with a higher price it might be worth waiting until it inevitably goes down to half price by July. Oh and did I mention you'll be able to put playable character Machine Gun Kelly through a table?
Kirby and the Forgotten Land (game)
Kirby has gone open world in what looks to be The Last of Us meets Super Mario Odyssey meets Kirby and I'm 100% here for it. The Forgotten Land is set to switch up the series and bring it to a new audience in the same way that Odyssey did for Mario, it will stay faithful to what made the original games so great but the open world and fully 3D environment makes it feel that bit more modern. This one is a Switch exclusive and while a new Kirby title might not be the thing that convinces you to get a Switch if you haven't already it definitely should be on your wishlist if you do have a Switch (and if you don't have a Switch why not?! They're excellent).
WRC 10 Switch edition (game)
WRC is set to be the next driving franchise to come out on the Switch this month. The Switch is mostly known for its indie releases or for the more stereotypical Nintendo titles but it is also now the best console for some handheld rally action. If previous Switch driving titles such as Need for Speed Hot Pursuit and Burnout Paradise are anything to go by WRC 10 will be a great addition to your Switch collection. This one debuted everywhere else in August 2021 so it's not exactly a new release but if you haven't got it already maybe now is the perfect time.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla Dawn of Ragnarok (game add-on)
Assassin's Creed Valhalla is entering its second year of content and its most promising yet. Dawn of Ragnarok sees Eivor swapped out for Odin in what might be the franchise's most ambitious DLC ever. Ubisoft has claimed that this one has a runtime of 40 hours with a new map, new abilities, and new weapons, Dawn of Raganarok definitely looks worth the £35/$40 it costs.
Even if there's not much out this month there's still something for everyone whether you're a sports fan, a classic arcade fan, or an open world adventure fan you'll be able to find something on this list to keep you busy in March.
