House of Ashes – The Dark Pictures and My Friend Peppa Pig are among this week’s new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.
The third instalment of Supermassive’s horror anthology series The Dark Pictures comes to Xbox consoles this week. House of Ashes – which stars Ashley Tisdale – is set in ruins of a Sumerian temple.
Other new Xbox releases include the delayed deployment of XBLA remaster Toy Soldiers HD and the mystery visual novel Reminiscence in the Night.
We also expect that a fair number of younger players are excited by the release of My Friend Peppa Pig. Snort!

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
