Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Pikuniku headline this week’s lineup of new Xbox One releases.
After last week’s threadbare lineup of new releases, we’re pleased to say that some excellent video games are coming to Xbox One.
Top-billed is Ori and the Will of the Wisps, the new platform-adventure game from Moon Studios. The followup to 2015’s Ori and the Blind Forest looks sumptuous and features a much larger world to explore. We also detect the subtle influence of Hollow Knight, particularly in the game’s tricky boss battles.
Another highlight is Sectordub’s offbeat puzzle adventure, Pikuniku. Tom loved the game on Nintendo Switch, calling it an unbridled joy. Both Ori and Pikuniku are included with March’s Xbox Game Pass lineup, so subscribers have no excuse for not giving them a try.
State of Decay 2 – Juggernaut Edition is also included with Microsoft’s game subscription service. This significant update to Undead Labs’ zombie survival game features improved graphics, a brand new map, and all three add-ons for the game released to date. Other new releases include Roundguard and Bandai Namco fighter, My Hero One’s Justice 2.
Every new game can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store or Microsoft online store. Here’s the confirmed lineup.
