February 2016 New PC Games To Watch For

Well, this feature is being posted a bit late this month. My excuse is that the games had been so good this year that it is quite difficult to decide which are the cream of the crop. But, oh well, here goes nothing -

XCOM 2 is a turn-based tactics video game developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux. XCOM 2 is the sequel to 2012's reboot of the series, XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Taking place 20 years after the events of Enemy Unknown, it follows the continuity that XCOM, a military organization trying to fight off an alien invasion, has lost the war, and is now a resistance force against their occupation of Earth.
It was released February 5, 2016.

Dying Light: The Following

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4

It is the sequel to Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, and is the first Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm installment built for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It covers the final arcs of the Naruto storyline, therefore making it the last installment in the series.
It was released on February 5, 2016.

Unravel is a puzzle platform video game developed by Coldwood Interactive and published by Electronic Arts. The game centres on Yarny, a small anthropomorphic creature made of yarn whom the player navigates through the environment, utilizing the unraveling yarn which makes up Yarny to solve puzzles, avoid dangerous creatures, and traverse obstacles.
It was released in February 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.

Street Fighter V

The game was released in February 16, 2016 for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 4 with a later release on Linux, and will feature cross-platform play between the Windows and PlayStation 4 versions.

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc  is a murder mystery visual novel adventure game developed and published by Spike Chunsoft and the first game in the Danganronpa series.
The game was released on Steam in February 18, 2016.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

It was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 25, 2016.

Disgaea PC
Disgaea is a Strategy RPG, where you train your characters to level 9999 and deal damage by the millions in the wacky Netherworld that is Disgaea. Help Laharl become the Overlord by fighting complex battles that not only include spells and weapons, but also the unique Geo Panel and Lift & Throw systems.
A version of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, including the added content in Afternoon of Darkness, was released for Microsoft Windows via Steam on February 24, 2016, retitled as Disgaea PC.

Superhot is an independently developed first-person shooter (FPS) video game, created by Superhot Team. Though the game follows traditional FPS gameplay mechanics, with the player attempting to take out enemy targets using guns and other weapons, time within the game only progresses when the player moves; this creates the opportunity for the player to assess their situation and respond appropriately, making the gameplay similar to strategy-based games. The game is presented in a minimalist art style, with enemies in red in contrast to white and grey backgrounds.
The full game was released for Microsoft Windows, OS X, and Linux on 25 February 2016, with an Xbox One version anticipated in March 2016.

[ So everyone can totally see why February is the month of promising games this year where it was quite hard for me to pick the top of the releasing games. I am specially interested in 'XCOM2', 'Street Fighter V' and 'Disgaea PC' among these.]
