Weekend Console Download Deals for Feb. 12: Lunar New Year 2021

The Lunar New Year sales are going down this weekend, led by Xbox. But no matter what platform you're on, you'll find your first discount for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory.


If you're into Kingdom Hearts like I am… okay, you may not be, but hey, who's writing this thing? Fine, let's start over. If you're into Kingdom Hearts like I am, you were excited to hear that the PC player base is going to have their first chance to jump into the series, thanks to the Epic Games Store. That should remind you, John Q. Console Gamer, that you've had Kingdom Hearts available to you all along. And if you got lost in the next-gen console hoopla, you may not have realized that Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory came out in November. And yes, it is relevant to the overarching story.

Fortunately for you, Melody of Memory is one of the games headlining this weekend's console deals. It's on sale across Xbox, PlayStation, and Switch. If you're not a Kingdom Hearts fan, then on top of feeling terrible for your lack of joy and whimsy, I will point you to several exciting sales, including Xbox's Lunar New Year Sale, PlayStation's Big in Japan Sale (along with the continuing Critics' Choice Sale), and Nintendo's various publisher sales.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
