Cris Tales headlines the list of new games coming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One in the coming week.
Exploring The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword‘s Lanayru Province this weekend is a reminder of how much fun it is when video games use time manipulation to create absorbing gameplay.
It’s something we hope to experience more of in Cris Tales, the new action RPG from Dreams Uncorporated coming soon to Xbox consoles.
Cris Tales splits the game screen into three sections – past, present, and future – setting the stage for a vibrant role-playing adventure with puzzles and combat taking place across time zones. It’s mechanically interesting, and the influence of Colombian culture and architecture also makes it narratively and visually compelling.
Other new Xbox releases include walking sim In Rays of the Light, Orcs Must Die! 3, and Warhammer: 40,000 BattleSector.
Here’s the full lineup of new Xbox games. We’ll update this page with any late additions throughout the week.
