The last of 2022, December is already before your eyes. December is the month that closes the year. Here, while the end-of-year and New Year’s consumer season overlap, many anticipated works are released, such as Callisto Protocol, which attracted a lot of attention even before its release for its unique cruelty, and The new Marvel Midnight Sons based on the comics Marvel. Presentation of December game expectations to inform the end of 2022.
Romancing Saga -Minstrel Song- Remastered (December 1st｜PS4, PS5, Switch, PC)
Square Enix releases Romancing Saga -Minstrel Song- Remastered. It is a remastered game from the past Romancing Saga 1 remade as Romancing Saga: Minstrel Song on PS2. It is a turn based RPG where one of 8 main characters is selected and proceeds. Based on this system, while retaining the battle system such as flash and link unique to the Saga series, it has evolved to enable more comfortable gameplay by adding improved resolution graphics, various improvements in convenience, and new elements.
In the remastered version, playable characters Seryl, Monica, Marin, Prama and Aldora have been added, allowing you to freely organize and enjoy adventures with a total of more than 30 characters. In addition, new content is being prepared such as a new event that tells the story of the hero Mirza from the point of view of Aldora, a boss battle that is more difficult than the original, and additional weapons and classes.
Callisto Protocol (December 2｜PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX)
The spiritual sequel to Dead Space, the third-person action survival horror Callisto Protocol, will be released on the 2nd. This game has been well received by many players by holding a game demonstration at Krafton’s G-Star 2022 booth. As you encounter detailed and brutal death scenes, you can feel the sincerity that the production team put into the images, and the eerie sound design also plays a role in stimulating fear.
Ranged weapons in Dead Space and the limbs of enemies that shatter and stomp to finish them off are the same in Callisto Protocol. A new addition here is that, unlike Dead Space, active melee combat is possible. There are various types of enemies, so that’s good to expect.
Need for Speed: Unbound (December 2｜PS5, XSX, PC)
Need for Speed Unbound is the latest installment in the Need for Speed series. The genre of this game is action racing, where your main goal is to outrun the cops, beat the weekly qualifiers, and reach The Grand, Lakeshore’s ultimate street racing challenge. When using the PS5, you can vividly feel the friction of the tire on the road with vibrations that are instantly transmitted to DualSense.
Marvel Midnight Sons (December 2｜PS4, PS5, XBO, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PC)
This game is a turn-based strategy RPG using the Marvel Comics IP. In addition to heroes such as Spider-Man, Iron Man and X-Men’s Wolverine, you can meet various villains such as Venom through crossover stories.
The story follows you as you team up with Earth’s last line of defense, the Midnight Sons, and take on the demonic forces of the underworld. After centuries of slumber, Lilith, the mother of demons, is resurrected and the Avengers turn to the Midnight Sons for help.
Hello Neighbor 2 (December 6｜PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX, PC)
Hello Neighbor 2 is a stealth horror game about uncovering the secrets of a creepy neighbor. The goal is to enter the house of a neighbor who is behaving suspiciously and find out what the neighbor is hiding. Unlike previous games, you can walk around the entire village and interact with the villagers equipped with artificial intelligence.
Although it is a horror genre, it has puzzle elements and the main character is a child, so the field of view is low. Also, one of the biggest features is that as the game progresses, the AI gradually develops and starts tracking terribly. That’s why stealth play is needed, like listening for footsteps and hiding under the bed.
Wizard’s Night (December 8｜PS4, Switch)
The console version of Wizard’s Night will also be released in December, which is considered one of the representative works of Typemoon together with Fate and Wolhee. Wizard’s Night is also associated with other titles such as the visual novel Type Moon released in 2012 and Moon Hee. The console version to be released in December adds character voices and supports high resolution. The narrative has been expanded and there are two side stories in addition to the main story, so it’s a highly anticipated story-focused work.
Paragon: The Overprime (December 8｜PC)
Netmarble’s new game, Paragon: The Overprime, will begin Early Access on Steam and the Epic Games Store on December 8. Like the original Paragon, it is a third-person 5v5 AOS where you select one of many heroes to occupy the opponent’s base. You can combine over 100 items for strategic play. The thing that most distinguishes it from Paragon is the speed, and the overall speed was quickly adjusted based on the analysis that the rather slow tempo of the original was the cause of the box office failure. Maybe that’s why it feels like a game that definitely tastes good to look at. The early access version released this time includes 27 heroes, the Agnis of Light map, competitive play, and starter pass.
Crysis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion (December 14｜PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX, Switch, PC)
Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7, which was released in 2007 and received much praise for its heartwarming story, has been remastered. In Reunion, all 3D models, including HD quality and characters, are said to be freshly created. In addition, the story is said to be expressed more clearly through the full voice output and the vocal and arranged soundtrack. What stands out the most, however, is the revamped combat system that also offers a smooth gaming experience.
Black Tail (December 16｜PS5, XSX, PC)
The action-adventure Blacktail, set in the origins of Slavic mythology, will also be released in December. The game tells the story of Baba Yaga, a girl who was kicked out of her house after being accused of witchcraft. The gameplay features a unique blend of intense archery combat and dark storytelling.
Arrows, the main character’s weapon, can be crafted and used, and are required for hunting wild animals and gathering resources, as well as boss fights. In addition to the main quests, there is also content that shapes the style of play by finding hidden treasures to learn about the environment and history, collecting lost recipes and crafting elixirs.
Fist of the North Star Fitness Boxing (December 22｜Switch)
This time it’s a Nintendo Switch exclusive. The latest in the fitness boxing series is Fitness Boxing Fist of the North Star, an exercise-type swap game in which Kenshiro, the main character of Fist of the North Star, becomes the player’s instructor and helps him exercise . Originally, boxing fitness basically only supported exercise, but because Kenshiro is the main character, Fist of the North Star boxing fitness added a brawl battle mode. Through this, you can defeat the enemy and Jaco Battle and Boss Battle is ready. Practicing in front of that Kenshiro, I think I have to work harder.
Park Beyond (December 25｜PS5, XSX, PC)
Park Beyond is a theme park management simulation game. The great appeal of this game is that you can build rides that you have always dreamed of but cannot exist in real life due to reasons such as technology, money or gravity. Players can create and transform their theme park, creating thousands of ride combinations, designing an entire park theme, or mixing materials for endless possibilities.
