This is probably the biggest week we've seen so far this year when it comes to big names especially from already established brands. Of course the most significant titles for us this week is Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 and Battlefield Hardline. As always, there are other games headed to the Xbox One this week but we'll let you continue reading to figure those out.
1. Fruit Ninja Kinect 2
Fruit Ninja Kinect was easily one of the most fun and responsive titles for the original Kinect for Xbox 360. So it's no surprise that it has made its way to the next-gen, with Fruit Ninja Kinect 2. Halfbrick Studios is touting this version to be bigger, better, and juicer in every way.
Some of the newest features in this sequel are five new game modes, four play multiplayer, and a new progression system. And that's only the beginning. Not much else is known about the title even though it launches tomorrow exclusively for Xbox One. Also, keep an eye out for our review which should be coming later this week as well.
2. Battlefield: Hardline
law and order
Battlefield: Hardline is the first time that the series strays from military conflict and focuses on the conflict on our home soil. In the single-player episodic campaign, you play as a young detective who has recently joined Miami's vice unit and your job is to help them work their way from the bottom of the drug supply all the way to the top.
In multiplayer, Battlefield: Hardline still emphasizes the use of vehicles and squad-based warfare. One of my favorite game types is heist. This version has one team playing the criminals as they try to pull of an elaborate robbery of a bank. The other team then plays as the cops who are trying to stop them.
Battlefield: Hardline shoots its way onto the Xbox One tomorrow, March 17.

3. Final Fantasy Type-0 HD
the beginning of the end
Final Fantasy Type-0 was first released back in 2011 for the PlayStation Vita. The game's biggest draw is that unlike most FFs, this one feature real-time, action-based fighting system similar to the one from Crisis Core.
As usual, Orience has become war-torn and it's up to you to stop it. The Milities forces have attacked Rubrum, which provokes Class Zero to come about and stop them.
If you are a fan of other titles in the Final Fantasy universe, you are more than likely going to like this one adds a fresh take on the series. It is said to be more gritty and fast paced compared to other installments in the series.
Final Fantasy Type-0 HD launches tomorrow, March 17.

4. Bladestorm: Nightmare
the hundred years' war
Bladestorm: Nightmare comes from the studios that brought everyone Hyrule Warriors. This time they bring us their take on The Hundred Years' War that went on between England and France.
You play as a created mercenary character who is given contracts by either side and has to fulfill the objectives of said contract. That being said, your character is very vulnerable, so you must make the best use of the available units and abilities that you are given.
Bladestorm: Nightmare becomes available for Xbox One tomorrow, March 17.
