6 video games to look out for in February

The year in gaming is heating up pretty quickly thanks to a few big releases making their way to our eyeballs this February. Here's the games you should keep a look out for!

Cobalt 
Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows
February 2

Cobalt is a side-scrolling shooter a little reminiscent of Contra and Gunstar Heroes. In addition to running and gunning your way through levels, you're also able to use a bullet time like power, and roll through gunfire to deflect it. Notably, Cobalt is published by Mojang, the company behind Minecraft.

Gravity Rush Remastered 
PlayStation 4
February 3

Gravity Rush Remastered brings a cult classic from the PlayStation Vita to the big screen. Based around a central gravity-shifting mechanic, Gravity Rush is an action game quite unlike anything else, made better by an RRP of just AUD$39.

XCOM 2 
Windows, Mac, Linux
February 5

As the name suggests, XCOM 2 is the sequel to the recently rebooted alien-swatting XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Set 20 years after the reboot (taking the bad ending where you fail to stop the alien threat as canon), you step in the shoes of the commander of a guerrilla resistance force.  

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 
Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows
February 5

Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is the next-generation debut of the traditionally well received series of fighting games based on the Naruto anime and manga. I've personally never watched or read the series, but the game has one hell of a name.

Unravel 
Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows
February 9

Unravel is an adorable physics-based platformer where you play as Yarny, a little creature made of, well, yarn. As Yarny progresses through levels, he unravels, allowing you to use the excess yarn to make bridges, so solve puzzles, or even as a grappling hook. Unravel simply oozes charm.

Street Fighter V 
PlayStation 4, Windows, Linux
February 16

Street Fighter V brings the legendary arcade fighter to next-generation consoles, boasting new characters and gorgeous graphics. Notably, the game supports cross-platform multiplayer, allowing gamers playing on PlayStation 4 to fight gamers playing on PC and vice-versa.
