Every week, new games are released for the Xbox One. Whether they are indie titles or AAA titles, we want to make sure they're on your radar. So get your wallet ready and clear some space on your hard drive. Let's take a look at what's coming out this week for Xbox One.
Unravel was announced last year at E3, and it took people's breath away. Not because of the gorgeous visuals the game showed off, but more so because this isn't a game we expected to come from the most hated video game company, Electronic Arts.
Featuring an adorable yarn-being named Yarny, Unravel has you venturing through the backyards of Scandinavia to in the search of memories. The game plays as a puzzle-platformer in which you use your yarn body to achieve puzzles by making rope bridges, pulleys, or swing.
Unravel is available now on Xbox One.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia is the final installment in the Assassin's Creed Chronicles trilogy that gave us our first look at Assassins in an entirely new way. This 2.5D platformer focuses heavily on stealth in order for you to make your way past enemies.
In ACC: Russia, you play as Assassin Nikolaï Orelov during his final mission before he flees communist Russia with his family. However, he must infiltrate a Bolsheviks compound where the Templars are holding an ancient artifact.
If you played the previous Assassin's Creed Chronicles and enjoyed them then definitely you'll look forward to the new title. That being said, if you haven't gotten around to these games there's now a trilogy pack of the titles at a discounted price.
Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Russia becomes available for the Xbox One later today.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (man, that's a mouthful) is the final installment of the saga as it covers the final story arcs of the Naruto Shippuden anime. The game features a number of improvements over previous titles — developers wanted to game's life to be as long as possible since it represents the end of one of anime's biggest franchise.
Some of the game's notable changes are the ability to swap characters during a fight and the return of the wall run from the original Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm. The game features over 70 characters from the TV show as well as movies and contains over 15 boss battles.
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is available now on Xbox One.
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is based on the popular anime that launched last year. The game comes from beat-'em up-action heavy-hitters Koei Tecmo, who are known for games like Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors.
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend features the same visual style as the anime as well as the same voice actors. The gameplay holds true to other Warriors games by the developer but has a few new features that will please both Warriors and anime fans alike.
Arslan: The Warriors of Legend is available now on Xbox One.
