Lies of P

Pinochisoulslike. This gorgeous South Korean made title came out of nowhere with incredible artwork and fun looking gameplay.

Inspired by the familiar story of Pinocchio, Lies of P is an action souls-like game set in a dark Belle Époque world. Guide Pinocchio on his unrelenting journey to become human.


Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

KOEI Tecmo surprised with a brand new IP coming day one to Game Pass back in the June 2022 showcase. NIOH never made it to Xbox, so it’s good to see their latest title not only on Xbox but in the sub service

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty follows the dramatic, action-packed story of a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms. Players fight off deadly creatures and enemy soldiers using swordplay based on the Chinese martial arts, attempting to overcome the odds by awakening the true power from within.

Team Ninja

Forza Motorsport

The latest in the long-running series is a long-term platform on the Series Consoles and PC only. New physics, ray tracing, and more are looking to make this the most realistic and best-looking Forza yet.

Coming in spring 2023, Forza Motorsport has been built from the ground up to showcase the Xbox Series X|S consoles. The accuracy of our overhauled physics, the beauty of our cars and tracks, our new dynamic time of day, advanced car damage, and real time ray tracing on track lead to a generational leap in immersion. Forza Motorsport is the most technically advanced racing game ever made.

The Last Case of Benedict Fox

The game that Shpeshal Nick and Sikamikanico will be fighting to the death over. You are Benedict Fox, investigating his “last case” as a demonic curse is about to kill him. It’s a dark, dank metroidvania with lots of purple!

Take on the last case of Benedict Fox and dive into a twisted world of secret organizations, forbidden rituals, and cold-blooded murders. Explore the memories of deceased victims as you search for clues and fight demons in this fantastical Lovecraftian Metroidvania.

Plot Twist

Monster Hunter Rise

After releasing to massive critical acclaim, Monster Hunter Rise is heading to Xbox and Game Pass in January. Keep an eye here on the site as we’re already working on its review!

Set in the Japanese folklore inspired Kamura Village, players will explore lush ecosystems and battle fearsome monsters to become the ultimate hunter. Hunt solo or in a party with friends to earn rewards that you can use to craft a huge variety of weapons and armor.

Persona 3 Portable & Persona 4 Golden

Alongside the announcement of Persona 5 Royal on Xbox, ports of Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden were also announced. Enjoy these original PlayStation classics, now on Xbox platforms with visual, gameplay enhancements, and new languages supported!

Experience the iconic, critically acclaimed RPG that reinvented the Persona series, Persona 3 Portable, now newly remastered for modern platforms. Shortly after transferring to Gekkoukan High School, the protagonist encounters the “”Dark Hour.”” Unfamiliar stillness swallows the city, people turn into eerie coffins, and otherworldly monsters called Shadows swarm. When they are attacked by one of these Shadows and all hope seemed lost, the power of the heart, their Persona is awakened. With this newfound power, they pursue the truth of the Dark Hour and face the destiny that awaits them.

Persona 3 Portable

The world-renowned Persona 4 Golden promises unforgettable adventures, meaningful bonds, and heartwarming experiences shared together with friends. They say your soulmate will appear if you stare into a television set on a rainy night… This strange rumor slowly spreads through the rural town of Inaba, the protagonist’s new home, just as a chain of mysterious murders begin. As the protagonist and his teammates chase after the truth, they find themselves opening the door to another world.

Persona 4 Golden


The sequel to the longtime-running survival game ft. dinosaurs is almost here. Starring Vin Diesel comes the next generation of “survival evolved”, although not many details are known about this game besides details about mods and gameplay improvements. We’ll see how things turn out in 2023!

Suddenly awakened on a strange primal world filled with dinosaurs and humans struggling for dominance; you must piece together the history of how you arrived there, team-up with legendary heroes, and confront powerful dark forces seeking to control the fate of all life. Saddle up, and join the definitive next-generation survival experience with ARK 2!



The sequel to Guilty Gear’s long-running Xrd series is finally coming to Xbox! Designed to be far more accessible to new players than previous entries, Strive has gone on to be the series’ bestselling game (and in turn, for the company). It’s never been a better time to jump into an anime fighter, especially one with cross play!

Discover the Smell of the Game with Guilty Gear -Strive-! Immerse yourself in new gameplay mechanics designed to be simple and welcoming for fighting game newcomers, yet deep and creative for veterans. Ride the Fire into a heavy metal inspired alternate future full of over-the-top action, style and fun! Blazing!

“Guilty Gear -Strive-“ is the latest entry in the critically acclaimed Guilty Gear fighting game franchise. Created by Daisuke Ishiwatari and developed by Arc System Works, “Guilty Gear -Strive-“ upholds the series’ reputation for a high octane soundtrack, groundbreaking hybrid 2D/3D cell-shaded graphics and intense, rewarding gameplay.
