I cannot believe I am already putting together a release calendar for 2019. 2018 flew past so quickly and while I am sad to see it go, 2019 means all the awesome new games are coming our way which is always good news. January 2019 games kick off with a bang with two of the year’s most anticipated titles. Resident Evil 2 Remake and none other than Kingdom Hearts III. There are some other jewels here and there but I have been waiting over ten years for the next Kingdom Hearts entry. Check out all the January 2019 games coming your way.
