By Aaron Potter | | 486 |

Whether you’re ready for it or not 2020 is coming. And not only that, but video game releases aren’t waiting for the Summer period to release thick and fast, with lots of great games on PS4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One already set to arrive in January. Admittedly, most of the games featured here aren’t extremely Earth-shattering, yet there’s still likely something here to tantalise the taste buds.

For sports fans in particular there’s quite a few treats in store, with January representing the perfect time to take a break from the typical mainstream action of juggernaut releases like FIFA 20. Still, though, if it’s puzzles, scares or anime fighting action you’re looking for, there are titles worth looking at. Here’s every new big game releasing on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in January 2020

Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training (January 3rd)

Platforms: Nintendo Switch

A highly popular puzzle series that incited a bit of a craze back in the Nintendo DS era, Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training makes its return in January with a totally new take on the edutainment concept that arrives exclusively on Nintendo Switch. As before, the game encourages players to fall into a regular routine of challenging their brain using a variety of mental and logic exercises. What’s more, those that pick up the boxed retail version of Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training will also receive a Switch-compatible Stylus, helping you complete classic and new exercises by turning your console vertically.

AO Tennis 2 (January 9th)

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One

Compared to something all-encompassing like football or rugby, tennis fans in the UK often have to wait until summer to indulge in their favourite sport. However, AO Tennis 2 arrives on PS4 and Xbox One extremely early on January 9th to ensure this isn’t the case, being the only interactive tennis experience designed for and by the community. It’s actually only the second game in the official series centred around the Australian Open, featuring legendary players like Nadal and Federer but also letting you create your own future tennis star and forge an original career.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot (January 17th)

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One

Dragon Ball Z is no stranger to delivering expertly designed fighting games that faithfully recreate the over-the-top action of the classic anime fighting show. January 2020 sees Bandai Namco attempt this again on PS4 and Xbox One, with Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot serving as the newest game that lets players relive the entire story of Goku through battling. Iconic battles and events from Dragon Ball Z lore are totally playable here, as you fight harder to increase your power level and rise to the challenge.
