WWE Immortals (iOS) – January 15, 2015

As a free to play game, there are probably a few apprehensions regarding the quality of NetherRealm Studios’ latest game. However, considering that the studio has also been responsible for the release of such success stories as Mortal Kombat and Injustice: Gods Among Us, those fears are easily misplaced. WWE Immortals proves to be a very good game that falls short on being great, but is enjoyable enough for fans and non-fans of WWE alike. Besides, who wouldn’t want to play a fighting game that literally portrays John Cena as a comic book superhero?

SpongeBob HeroPants (Various consoles) – February 3, 2015

Games based on hit Nickelodeon shows have always been geared towards the youngest demographics and SpongeBob HeroPants is no different. Set after the events of the upcoming movie, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, the game will allow players to control several popular characters to battle enemies, solve problems and explore brand new areas. There are also console exclusive features, such as the drop in/drop out co-op play for players on the Xbox 360.

Mario Party 10 (Wii U) – March 20, 2015

The latest entry in the beloved Mario Party series, Mario Party 10 continues the rich tradition of four players competing against each other in several mini-games. If you loved the previous thirteen entries of Mario Party then you’re sure to love this one too. If you happen to be a newcomer to the series, then there is no better way to get started with the franchise.

Batman: Arkham Knight (Various consoles) – June 2, 2015

Everybody knows what a success the Arkham series has been so far. Is it really surprising that a fourth and perhaps final Batman game is set to be released in June of 2015? My guess is, not in the slightest. Set after the events of Batman: Arkham City, Arkham Knight offers a much bigger world than the previous games have been able to provide, although considering the next gen consoles that it will be exclusively running in, that’s a totally believable concept. Batman fans will sure to rejoice once June rolls by and they can begin hunting down the infamous rogue gallery once more.
