Here’s your round-up of games coming to the Xbox One between 19th – 23rd December, 2016.
As you might expect there’s a fairly slender line-up of Xbox One games released in the coming week. There are a few notable titles though.
First up is Shantae: Half-Genie Hero. The game has been a long-time coming but it looks to be worth the wait and will bring a little colour and sunshine to these gloomy Winter evenings. We spoke to WayForward’s Matt Bozon about the game way back in 2013, so it will be interesting to see how the final product turns out.
And what’s this? Do our eyes deceive us? A new game for Kinect? Yep, that’s exactly what Boom Ball 2 is. I think we should all sit down and have a sip of sherry.
Elsewhere, if you have somehow managed to avoid Playdead’s inta-classics, Limbo and Inside, you now have the chance to pick them up in a specially priced bundle. Make sure that you do.
Here’s the full line-up of the week’s releases:
Xbox One releases for 19 – 23 December 2016
Tuesday 20 December, 2016
- Shantae: Half-Genie Hero
Wednesday 21 December, 2016
- Boom Ball 2 (for Kinect)
- Crypt of the Serpent King
- Momonga Pinball Adventures
Thursday 22 December, 2016
- Inside & Limbo Bundle
Don’t forget to come back for this week’s PlayStation Store releases later this weekend.
