Get ready for a busy – and colourful – week of new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.
The 30th-anniversary celebrations of Sonic the Hedgehog continue this week with the release of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, a new HD revamp of the well-liked 2010 3D platformer. The game features some new content, but it’s the updated visuals and performance we’re most excited to see.
Other promising new Xbox releases include Deck Nine’s graphic adventure Life is Strange: True Colors and Bandai Namco’s long-awaited action RPG, Tales of Arise. Fans of squeaky floors should also check out NBA 2K22.
The Artful Escape, Crown Trick, and Nuclear Throne also come to Xbox, and are included with Game Pass.
Here’s the complete list of new releases. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late arrivals.
