Every month, VG Finder tracks down the major video game releases and lists them here. Check out what's in store for gamers in March 2016.

1 March 2016: After a slow start the to the year, February really stepped up the game (so to speak) with massive releases like the mesolithic Far Cry: Primal, alien invasion RTS X-COM 2 and the return of Ryu (now with added beard) for Street Fighter V.

That's a tough month to follow up and we're sure that pile of games underneath your television hasn't gotten any smaller since Christmas, but we're here to tell you that March is no different.

March 1st, PC users will be able to get their paws on Far Cry: Primal and the very next day Mortal Kombat XL releases (apparently only to steal the thunder of last month's Street Fighter V release).

Soon after Link's foray into the canine life makes its way to Nintendo Wii U. If you never had the good luck to experience Twilight Princess on GameCube and Nintendo Wii U, then dust off your GamePad and don that tunic, because this is one of the best Zelda stories ever told.

Next up we will get the game that's going to devour the rest of 2016 for some, The Division. We got some hands-on time with The Division last month and can just about guarantee it's going to be as big as Destiny. 

Check out the list below for more video game releases for the month of March 2016.
