Did you think that the releases for February were stacked? March is just as stacked, too. Here are our top 10 new games of March 2022 list: a continuation of the February release-fest. While February saw the releases of big games like Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West, March is also filled with games that are worth picking up. While a lot of fans would still be busy playing Elden Ring, these games could offer nice detours to clean the palatte.

Top 10 New Games of March 2022

Release Date: March 1
Developed By: Piranha Bytes
Published By: THQ Nordic
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X

Eclectic, Lavish, Exhilarating, Xenial. While the first ELEX failed to set the world on fire, it still managed to form a cult following. This time around, Piranha Bytes takes a second take on ELEX with ELEX II, hoping to finally capture the science fiction fantasy-action-adventure RPG magic that they were trying the first time around.

2. Shadow Warrior 3
Release Date: March 1
Developed By: Flying Wild Hog
Published By: Devolver Digital
Platforms: PC, PS4, Xbox One

Irreverent and fast-paced, Shadow Warrior has always been the first-person shooter alternative to those who think DOOM is too boring and void of any character. The experience is very similar in terms of gameplay, but Shadow Warrior adds a lot more color and goofiness in the otherwise dark and serious tone of its contemporaries. Sadly, this game is only available for previous-gen consoles, so you'll have to contend with that if you're getting Shadow Warrior.

3. Babylon's Fall
Release Date: March 3
Developed By: PlatinumGames
Published By: Square Enix
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5

It's a PlatinumGames game, so it's bound to have fantastic gameplay at its core, but the real question about Babylon's Fall is if its multiplayer aspect would be fun and if its live service nature wouldn't hinder this fun. There's a lot of skepticism surrounding this game, but it's still one of the biggest games to come out this month, and a demo actually went out recently. If you want to test out the game or at least get a good feel on it, check out the many preview videos that have been made about it already so far. The game's first season has also been revealed through a trailer video, with Season 1 running its course throughout the next couple of months until May. The first season is actually in collaboration with another popular PlatinumGames title, NieR: Automata. This gives us an idea of what kind of content we could expect out of Babylon's Fall in the future.

4. Gran Turismo 7
Release Date: March 4
Developed By: Polyphony Digital
Published By: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Platforms: PS4, PS5

There's no shortage of amazing racing sim games anymore, but both Gran Turismo and Forza Horizon still rest on top of the mountain. For GT simulations, you have Assetto Corsa Competizione and Gran Turismo 7. However, Gran Turismo 7 is a brand-new game, while Assetto Corsa Competizione was only released recently as a next-gen upgrade. Both games look really well-polished, so it really depends on your taste at this point which one you'd pick up and play. Most, we imagine, would go for PlayStation's flagship car racing game.

5. Triangle Strategy
Release Date: March 4
Developed By: Artdink, Netchubiyori
Published By: Square Enix
Platforms: Nintendo Switch

Triangle Strategy is the Final Fantasy Tactics spiritual successor that we've all been waiting for, and the game's using the Octopath Traveler aesthetic for its graphics. If you like either of the two, then we're sure that Triangle Strategy will appeal to you in one way or another. Triangle Strategy is a tactical RPG that has multiple branching storylines. If you're not yet convinced that you want to play Triangle Strategy, then you could check out its demo and play through a couple of chapters to get a feel for it. Your save file will carry over from the demo to the full game.

6. WWE 2K22
Release Date: March 11
Developed By: Visual Concepts
Published By: 2K Sports
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X

WWE 2K22 is one of our most-covered games here at ClutchPoints, and we'd be lying if we said we aren't excited for WWE 2K's return. A lot of previews have shown that Visual Concepts had used its two years of break well. With the return of fan-favorite game modes like the MyGM Mode and Showcase Mode, to new game modes like MyFaction, WWE 2K22 is the step forward that the franchise needed to make if it were to continue its long lineage of wrestling simulation games. Pre-ordering the game will allow you to access the game three days early, as well as unlock alternate versions of soon-to-be Hall of Famer The Undertaker.

7. Ghostwire: Tokyo
Release Date: March 25
Developed By: Tango Gameworks
Published By: Bethesda Softworks
Platforms: PC, PS5

What do you get if you mix Bioshock with Japanese folklore? Well, the horrific Ghostwire: Tokyo will answer that for you when it comes out on both PC and PS5 on March 25. This is one of the last few titles published by Bethesda Softworks that we expect to debut exclusively on a Sony console, so there is some significance in Ghostwire: Tokyo's place in history. But even without that, we've gotten a taste of the game in the past few months and we're really liking the game's feel and aesthetic so far. We hope that it delivers on its hype. To find out more about this world, a free prologue in the form of a downloadable visual novel game was released to give players more context on the game's lore.

8. Kirby and the Forgotten Land
Release Date: March 25
Developed By: HAL Laboratory
Published By: Nintendo
Platforms: Nintendo Switch

Kirby in an open-world game? Well, not really. The way Nintendo describes it is more akin to a Super Mario Odyssey type of Kirby game, but Kirby and the Forgotten Land is awfully close to that description. We've also heard somewhere that Kirby and the Forgotten Land feels like how The Last of Us would be like if it were a children's cartoon, as both of them are set in a post-apocalyptic world. While that's actually a nice observation, we'd say that Kirby and the Forgotten Land is so colorful and jovial that you'd probably forget that you're playing in a post-apocalyptic world. This iteration of Kirby also has a lot of RPG mechanics running for it, so we could only get even more excited about this Nintendo Switch exclusive. If you're not convinced, a demo is now out, so do try it!

9. Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin
Release Date: March 18
Developed By: Team Ninja
Published By: Square Enix
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X

Stranger of Paradise generated a lot of funny memes at its expense when it was first revealed, no thanks to its comedic presentation. However, demos soon proved that there's more to Stranger of Paradise than meets the eye. Sadly, many players already felt off from the game's initial presentation, and first impressions last. Hopefully, a lot more of players would try out Stranger of Paradise and see it through the end, as the game does have a lot of great ideas hidden behind its admittedly boring cast of protagonists.

10. Tiny Tina's Wonderlands
Release Date: March 25
Developed By: Gearbox Software
Published By: 2K Games
Platforms: PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X


Tabletop story-telling and Borderlands had a baby, and Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is its name. This is Borderlands with its silliness boosted to the max. If you like a Borderlands game that doesn't take itself too seriously, like, you know, the older titles before Borderlands 3, then this is a great game to return to in the series. This is the most fantastical and most silly version of Borderlands ever, which even lets you design your playable characters (you know, like tabletop games) in Tiny Tina's ‘Bokers and Badasses” tabletop campaign. It's definitely one you shouldn't miss if you're into shooters.

BONUS: March is also so stacked, that we're doing another one of these bonus rounds. Keep an eye out on Battle Cry of Freedom on March 1, SpellForce 3 Reforced on March 8, Chocobo GP on March 10, the next-gen versions of GTA Online and GTA 5 on March 15, Phantom Breaker: Omnia on March 15, Tunic on March 16, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax on PC, Switch, and the PS4 on March 17, Ubisoft's The Settlers Reboot on March 17, Syberia: The World Before on March 18, Rune Factory 5 on March 22, Crusader Kings III for next-gen consoles on March 29, Death Stranding Director's Cut on PC on March 30, and Weird West on March 31.
