Slow month to whom? January immediately demonstrates how 2023 will be full of releases, including remakes, first hair novelties and potential surprises.

    Game releases tend to slow down during the holidays, but from January onwards, they’ll pick up the drums again. From One Piece Odyssey to Dead Space, the new arrivals in the gaming world are many and of, hopefully, very high quality.
