Upcoming GET 2013

Although my backlog is absolutely ridiculous, I can't help but look at upcoming releases to see if anything piques my interest.

Dead or Alive 5 Plus (Vita) - This one is a no brainer. All the footage I've seen looks great and it should be even better when viewed directly on that nice OLED screen.

Injustice: Gods Among Us - (PS3, 360) - Coming off the stellar Mortal Kombat reboot, I've got high expectations for the latest from NetherRealms Studios. The gameplay videos shown so far look sharp, but some of the combos have me concerned about balance. 

Resident Evil: Revelations (PS3/360) - I'm super psyched this is coming to the consoles and slightly bummed its skipping the Vita. I played through the 3DS demo and thought it was a faithful continuation of classic RE themes.

Muramasa Rebirth (Vita) - The Wii version was great and the Vita one looks even better. Probably the best Vanillaware game yet in terms of tight gameplay. Now they just need to update Odin Sphere for Vita with quicker load times and no slow down on boss fights. 

Dragon's Crown (PS3/Vita) - There is still no solid release date, but I can't think of any other game I'm more desperate to play.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (3DS) - Luigi's Mansion was one of my top 5 GameCube games so I'm quite interested in this follow up. Of course I still don't own a 3DS. The release of Fire Emblem is further weakening my resolve. I'll probably wait till another sales special. Perhaps close to E3.
