Xbox Game Pass receives a healthy dose of anime action and supernatural murder mystery. Bandai Namco’s stylish action RPG Scarlet Nexus headlines a batch of new titles hitting the service today, which Microsoft announced during its Tokyo Game Show presentation this morning. Game Pass subscribers now have a chance to check out one of the year’s best action games.
Scarlet Nexus comes from the makers behind the Tales series and is set in a dystopian “brainpunk” world. One of two characters, Scarlet Nexus, is yours. Each has their own campaign and each one can also be part of a team of similar gifted people. Bizarre, extradimensional creatures known as the Others have invaded Earth, and it’s up to you to stop them in their tracks. In his 8.75 out of 10 review, senior editor Dan Tack described Scarlet Nexus as a “stylish and compelling fantasy that’s all about the combat.” Bandai Namco also hinted that it has additional cosmetic content to the game “coming soon.”
AI: The Somnium Files
Another game hitting Game Pass is 2019’s AI: The Sominum Files. In this sci-fi detective game, you’re trying to solve a woman’s murder by exploring people’s dreams (under a six-minute time limit). You’ll gather intel by finding clues, interrogating suspects, and solving puzzles in a strange murder mystery that comes for the director of Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward.
Mighty Goose was released in June as a side-scrolling action shooting game. As an adorable, bounty hunting goose with an itchy trigger finger-er-feather, you’ll run and gun your way across colorful pixel art environments. Mighty Goose may be for you, if your passion is killing enemies with arcade-style action and geese.
Are you going to give any of these titles another chance now that Game Pass is available? We’d love to hear from you in the comments
