With the first month of the year done, we are getting into a very busy two month period featuring notable exclusives, highly anticipated games, new ports, and more. If you missed our Game of the Year coverage, it is all now live including platform-specific lists. This month sees games like Theatrhythm Final Bar Line, Labyrinth of Galleria, Like a Dragon: Ishin, Octopath Traveler II, and more release. Here’s what you need to know about the Japanese games releasing in February 2023 on all platforms. As usual, I’ll update this when dates change or new ones get announced.
