New Xbox releases

Remasters of two classic video games headline the week’s lineup of Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.

Alan Wake Remastered is a new 4K update for Remedy Entertainment’s beloved 2010 action-adventure. In addition to its enhanced visuals, the remaster also includes the two acclaimed story expansions: The Signal and The Writer.  It’s a welcome opportunity to revisit a minor classic, particularly following Control‘s AWE DLC.

Also rolling out this week is Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania from Sega. The game features every solo level from the original Super Monkey Ball, its sequel, and Deluxe, plus a selection of multiplayer modes. Purists may be upset by the subtle physics adjustments – and the more severe changes to Monkey Target – but the sheer amount of content makes this collection an irresistible prospect.

Another highlight is Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. This Smash-like brings together an impressive cast of fighters taken from the Avatar, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Ren & Stimpy franchises, among many others.

Other Xbox releases include Ubisoft’s latest open-world adventure, Far Cry 6, and Black Matter’s tactical World War II shooter, Hell Let Loose.

Here’s the complete list of new Xbox games. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late additions.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
