We first glimpsed Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess back in 2023 at the Xbox Games Showcase, and it quickly became one of our most anticipated Xbox titles, no less because it's from Capcom which has been on a roll in recent years.

Back in March 2024, we found out more, such as it will be a single-player game combining both real-time strategy mechanics and Kagura, ceremonial dancing steeped in Japanese religious history. We have a fantastic Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess FAQ with everything you need to know about the gameplay and the trailers we've seen thus far. The launch website states, "The game takes place on a mountain covered by defilement. During the day, purify the villages and prepare yourself for sundown. During the night, protect the Maiden against the hordes of the Seethe. Repeat the day and night cycle until you cleanse the mountain of defilement and return peace to the land."

Pre-orders have gone live today, but Xbox Game Pass subscribers will get the game on day one with their subscriptions. Here's a list of other upcoming games on Xbox Game Pass.
