Minecraft Dungeons and Shantae and the Seven Sirens headline this week’s lineup of new Xbox One releases.
Minecraft Dungeons is the week’s big new Xbox One game. The family-friendly dungeon crawler from Mojang Studios blends fast-moving hack-and-slash combat with the aesthetics of Minecraft to delicious effect. It’s not the next Torchlight, but it’s a polished co-op experience for intrepid explorers of all ages.
Another highlight is Shantae and the Seven Sirens from WayForward. The game returns to the franchise’s roots with another colourful instalment of exploration and platforming.
Other new Xbox One games include the dark fantasy adventure Little Misfortune and psychological horror, Those Who Remain. We also presume that the release of Ultimate Fishing Simulator means we’ll never need to buy another fishing game.
Each new release can be purchased from the Xbox One digital games store and Microsoft online store. Here’s the confirmed lineup.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
