Here’s this week’s lineup of new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One video game releases.
It’s a little bit like the morning after the night before on the Xbox digital game store this week. There are no standout titles for Series X and S, but some top-notch Xbox One games get welcome enhancements.
One example is Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, a new bundle for NetherRealm’s excellent fighter that includes the base game, the Aftermath Expansion, and two Kombat packs. The game supports Smart Delivery on Xbox Series X, which adds 4K dynamic resolution, enhanced visuals, and improved loading times.
Slightly more whimsical pursuits can be found in Katamari Damacy Reroll, the polished update to Keita Takahashi’s classic rolling adventure game. The game is as beguiling as ever and is always a pleasure to revisit. If you haven’t played it before, it’s an essential purchase.
The oddest game of the week is Five Dates. It’s an interactive rom-com from Good Gate Media that’s set during the coronavirus pandemic and stars Georgia Hirst, Sinead Harnet, and Doctor Who‘s Mandip Gill. Other new Xbox releases include the three-game Serious Sam Collection and space agency simulation Mars Horizon.
Each new game is available from the Xbox digital games store or the Microsoft web store. We’ll update this post throughout the week with any late additions.
