This week’s lineup of new Xbox releases includes Tunic and a next-gen update for Grand Theft Auto V.

The long-awaited action-adventure game Tunic is the pick of this week’s new Xbox releases. Andrew Shouldice’s game takes obvious inspiration from past Zelda classics, but our time with the game’s demo suggests that it will comfortably step out of Link’s shadow. Tunic is also released day and date on Xbox Game Pass.

Another indie highlight is Paradise Killer from Kaizen Game Works. It’s a remarkable detective adventure set in a vapourware infused world populated by bizarre but well-drawn characters. In our review, we said the game “breathes life into the detective genre with a world of gods and demons, but then breathes life into those otherwise tired ideas with its intoxicating cosmic internal logic.”

Elsewhere, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is a new action RPG that retells the events of the original Final Fantasy. Fan response to the game’s two demos has been mixed, but developer Team Ninja has been keen to take feedback on board, and the result will hopefully be an intriguing take on a familiar tale.

Finally, Grand Theft Auto V is getting an Xbox Series X|S update this week. The new version of the game comes at a (thankfully low) price and includes several graphics and performance enhancements.

Other new Xbox releases include Phantom Breaker: Omnia and Royal Frontier. We’ll keep this post updated with news of any additional releases throughout the week.
