Xbox Game Pass: tons of games on the way!

Xbox Game Pass

This morning there was a new Xbox digital event, with the Redmond company setting up a conference almost entirely dedicated to the Japanese public. The event lasted about an hour, and although it did not bring with it new bombastic announcements, fans can be satisfied with the news coming over the next few months, especially with regard to the games that will debut within the service in Xbox Game Pass subscription.

One of the big players is definitely Deathloop, with the most recent Arkane Studio title abandoning PlayStation console exclusivity to embrace the Xbox and Xbox Game Pass ecosystem as well. Also worth mentioning is the arrival in the service of Persona 5 The Royale, one of the most loved JRPGs of recent years and which has contributed to making the history of this very popular genre. There is also room for some welcome surprises, such as the two chapters of Ni No Kuni, Palworld and Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

Let's see in detail all the games coming to the Game Pass announced this morning:

Persona 5 The Royal Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Guilty Gear Strive Naraka Bladepoint Ni No Kuni Remastered Ni No Kuni 2 Danganronpa V3 Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes Dyson Sphere Program Palworld Deathloop Assassin's Creed Odyssey FUGA Melodies of Steel

Xbox Game Pass Gets Ni No Kuni Remastered, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, And More Today

Microsoft's Xbox Showcase at Tokyo Game Show 2022 had plenty of updates to share today, as well as news on a number of new games being added to the Game Pass library today. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Anniversary Edition, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, and Fuga: Melodies of Steel are all playable through the subscription service right now on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony is a visual novel developed and published by Spike Chunsoft in 2017, with an enhanced version arriving on Switch in 2021. Like previous games in the series, Killing Harmony follows more than a dozen high school students with special talents who are trapped in a deadly game. The person responsible for their predicament is also in the group and is working to avoid being caught out by the students.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey was released in 2018, and is was the middle chapter of the most-recent trilogy of games that included Assassin's Creed: Origins (also on Game Pass) and Valhalla. Taking place during the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta, players can choose to play as either Alexios or Kassandra, become a Spartan mercenary, and destroy an ancient cult that has destabilized Greece.

Fuga: Melodies of Steel is a more recent game, and is a turn-based tactical RPG where child survivors of a war band together and pilot an ancient super-tank in a quest to rescue their parents. Developed by CyberConnect2, the game has hand-drawn graphics and some heavy choices to make, as the group's tank is capable of unleashing massive devastation if you're prepared to sacrifice one of your party members to power up the Soul Cannon.

On September 20, Game Pass subscribers can also look forward to Deathloop. Available for pre-load right now, Arkane's time-travel first-person shooter will arrive with several upgrades, such as a new weapon, more enemy types, and an extended ending. It'll be available on both PC and Xbox Series X|S Game Pass. Fighting game fans can also prepare for a brawl when Arc System Work's Guilty Gear Strive and BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle: Special Edition are added to Game Pass in 2023.
