Get ready to get hyped, as March 2021 has some absolute bangers! From riveting reboots to incredible indies, tremendous triple-A titles, and captivatingly creative cult classics, March has it all. So, we’ve compiled a list of our most anticipated games coming your way this March for you to enjoy. You never know, maybe you’ll find your game of the year hidden within!
Pako Caravan – March 2nd
Pako Caravan is a delightful arcade title where the player navigates various vehicles around themed levels trying to complete as many objectives as possible before they inevitably crash. We’ve had the chance to play Pako Caravan and can 100% confirm it is an entertaining title. It’s as wacky and over-the-top as you’d expect, especially when you amass a vast, winding caravan behind you! There’s certainly a lot of replay value to be found here and a generous amount of content to explore. This is an absolute riot and well worth checking out!
Packing plenty of side-splitting laughs, Pako Caravan launches this March 2nd for the Nintendo Switch!
Maquette – March 2nd
Maquette instantly caught our eye the moment we saw the trailer. It’s a visually stunning game with an intriguing premise. Taking concepts from something as simple as a Russian doll, Maquette pits the player in a puzzling adventure about uncovering the story of two lovers. You can manipulate objects in one version of the world you’re in, which will directly affect a larger version of that same world. Take a regular size key, for example. Fairly normal, right? Well, by placing it in the smaller version of your wall, you can use it to bridge a gap to the next area or as a ramp into an even larger version of your world! It all sounds very complex but intriguing nonetheless, and we are confident in saying it’s one of our most anticipated games of the month!
Ponder through perplexing puzzles in Maquette when it releases for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Steam this March 2nd.
Sir Lovelot – March 3rd
We’ve covered Sir Lovelot before on The Game Crater, and for a good reason. This hilarious looking title looks like a really good time and full of the kind of laughs we need right now. Sir Lovelot features many levels for the player to enjoy, with perilous traps and monsters to overcome in each one! We’re very excited about this game, if only just to have a good chuckle and a bit of a blast.
Go questing for love in the highly hilarious adventure title Sir Lovelot on Steam this March 3rd.
Everhood – March 4th
We’re happy to say it straight off the bat: Everhood looks incredible. Its gorgeous visuals, outstanding soundtrack, and quirky narrative collate into what is set to be one of the year’s best indie games. It gives us some serious Undertale vibes, but without ever feeling it’s ripping that title off. Everhood feels wholly unique, innovating, improving and diverging from the golden age of indie games. From the trailer alone, it feels like a cult classic in the making. It’s not long now until it launches, but even for these next few days, we’ll be shaking in our boots with anticipation.
Dance to some absolute bops while uncovering a darkly charming story in Everhood this March 4th on the Nintendo Switch and Steam.
Stubbs The Zombie In Rebel Without A Pulse – March 16th
When it was announced at the recent Nintendo Direct, we rejoiced at the return of the cult classic Stubbs The Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse! Released way back in 2005 (remember those days?) Stubbs The Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse brought a fresh take on the zombie genre, not unlike how Destroy All Humans gave a welcomed facelift to the sci-fi genre. Now back and in full force, Stubbs The Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse (thank you, copy and paste) is set to take over the world one brain at a time in glorious HD!
Get ready to eat some brainzzzzz in Stubbs The Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse this March 16th for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam!
Minute Of Islands – March 18th
Minute of Islands has an incredibly intriguing art-style. It’s reminiscent of Spiritfarer, although far darker in tone. The mysterious islands you’ll be exploring give rise to a darkly charming narrative, and perplexing puzzles. We at The Game Crater love any game with unique world-building and wonderfully creative game mechanics, and Minute of Islands has it all. You’ll play as Mo in this beautifully handcrafted adventure game, explore weirdly wonderful worlds and delve deep within its underlying mysteries. Minute of Islands is by far one of our most anticipated games, and we highly recommend you check it out!
Explore weird islands and take part in an emotional narrative in Minute of Islands on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Steam this March 18th!
Monster Hunter Rise – March 26th
Do we really need to explain why we’re hyped for Monster Hunter Rise? Really? It’s one of the biggest titles launching this month, if not this year! Monster Hunter Rise is an incredibly ambitious Nintendo Switch exclusive that seeks to bring the epic and explosive scale of Monster Hunter World to the small but mighty platform that is the Switch. It’s full of all the great innovations the Monster Hunter franchise has brought over the past few years, as well as some new and exciting mechanics. If you’re not already hyped for Monster Hunter Rise, then you absolutely need to be! This is certainly one to look forward to!
Rise to the challenge and embark on an epic adventure Hunter when Monster Hunter Rise launches for the Nintendo Switch on March 26th.
It Takes Two – March 26th
It Takes Two looks heart-warmingly fabulous. Its fantastic trailer shows off some of its innovative and delightful looking co-operative gameplay, and we’re absolutely hyped to play this when it drops. It Takes Two seems intent on taking the co-op genre by storm from its intricately poignant yet hilariously uplifting narrative to its boundlessly bountiful gameplay mechanics. We’ve had heaps of fun playing Hazelight Studios previously co-operative affair, A Way Out, and can’t wait to see what innovations they’re bringing to the genre this time. This is high on our most anticipated games list, and it should be on yours too!
It’ll take two to tango when It Takes Two launches for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Steam on March 26th!
Narita Boy – March 30th
Narita Boy is a Game Crater favourite. We’ve been covering it for a while now and counting down the days until it graces our screens! It’s packed with 80’s charm while feeling entirely unique in its world-building. From its astoundingly amazing visuals (just look at the game’s screenshots!) to its heart-poundingly electrifying soundtrack, Narita Boy is absolutely on its way to becoming a cult classic! It’s an action platformer with a cybernetic twist. You’ll explore the digital world as Narita Boy and slay corrupted Stallions, all while uncovering the mystery behind the game’s creator! How bodaciously radical my trippily meta dude.
Expect plenty of 80’s references when it turns out Narita Boy is our father, makes our day, yippee-ki-yays, phone’s home, say’s hello to his little friend and is back this March for Steam, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch.
Buildings Have Feelings Too! – March 2021
What if Sims and Cities: Skylines had a baby? And it turned out to be a building that talks? Well, if, like us, you’ve ever pondered on this late at night while perusing Steam, then you’ll likely have come across the game, Buildings Have Feelings Too! A city management game with a twist, Buildings Have Feelings Too! sees players manage not only their city but the feelings of its very brick and mortar too. It’s an incredibly inviting premise that has us wondering where exactly developer Blackstaff Games is going with this. Buildings Have Feelings Too! is high on our most anticipated games list, and we can’t wait for its release!
Get ready to question whether or not that building really did move when you weren’t looking when Buildings Have Feelings Too! launches sometime this March.
