Microsoft has confirmed next week’s lineup of new Xbox One video game releases.
The new year gets off to a slow start on Xbox One with a mere five games on next week’s release list.
Four titles arrive on Wednesday, the most promising of which is 8-bit style RPG, Dragon Sinker: Descendants of Legend. It’s joined by puzzle-platformer In-Vert, Animal Friends Adventure, and Regions of Ruin.
Our Xbox One pick of the week is Paperbound Brawlers from Dissident Logic. The game is an evolution of 2015’s Paperbound and came to Nintendo Switch last year. As the name suggests, it’s a multiplayer brawler, but it mixes things up with a fun gravity-flipping mechanic and a classic literature theme. The game also features guest appearances from the stars of VVVVVV and Guacamelee!, among others.
If none of these games pique your interest, take a look at this week’s Xbox Games with Gold and Spotlight sales.
Each new release can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the full lineup.
