Here’s the full list of games coming to the Xbox One Games Store between 17–21 April, 2017.

There’s an incredibly solid lineup of games coming to the Xbox One Games Store in the next week. The fun begins on Tuesday with a bunch of remasters, all of which look promising.

First up is the return of Voodoo Vince. The OG Xbox classic never made it the Xbox 360, so it will be interesting to see if the game’s platforming shenanigans hold up after all this time. Vince is joined by Lizardcube’s sumptuous revamp of Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, and a compilation of six Disney NES classics in, The Disney Afternoon Collection.


Also arriving on Tuesday is Flinthook, a hookshot-based platform adventure from Tribute Games that looks like a lot of fun.

There’s a pretty significant – and potentially huge – release on Friday with the arrival of Cities: Skylines Xbox One Edition. The game has been a massive hit on PC and – assuming its controls are well implemented – we can only see its success continue on console.

Here’s the full release lineup:

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
