Outriders and Narita Boy headline next week’s lineup of new Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One releases.
With so few AAA games on the horizon, Outriders is looking like a bigger deal than many expected. The lack of competition should serve People Can Fly’s co-op RPG shooter quite well. Response to the recent demo was warm, and there’s something to like about its stripped-back approach to online gaming, as well as the welcome absence of microtransactions. The game’s release date debut on Xbox Game Pass won’t hurt its chances either.
We’re also excited by Narita Boy, even though we’re deeply tired of video games soaked in 80s aesthetics. Studio Koba’s effort piques our interest with its excellent production values and meta-narrative gimmick.
Other new Xbox releases include Acalesia, Mittelborg: City of Mages, Train Station Simulator. We’ll update this page throughout the week with any late additions.

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.
