A quintet of new games will be available to download through the Xbox Games Store beginning today.
Leading the way is Resident Evil 0, Capcom’s enhanced remaster of the (chronologically) first game in the Resident Evil series. As you might expect from a high definition re-release, the Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions of Resident Evil 0 will feature improved graphics and an optional new control scheme. But don’t worry, it’s got all the same shambling zombies.
Also available for the Xbox One is A Boy and His Blob, WayForward’s enhanced remake of the 2009 Wii original… which was itself a reboot of a beloved NES-era game. But whichever version of the game you play, players will still need to feed jelly beans to a shapeshifting blob to traverse a puzzle-filled world. The 80s were… let’s go with weird.
But Albedo: Eyes From Outer Space goes back a bit further than a 80s, and that’s because the Xbox One game is an homage to pulpy 60s sci-fi. The first-person adventure game will ask players to explore an abandoned research facility and do battle with some very angry eyeballs. Speaking of first-person game, the superheroic Gemini: Heroes Reborn is also now available for the Xbox One.
Finally, Electronic Super Joy is a minimalist platformer for the Xbox One that features a soundtrack by EnV, an “EDM superstar.”
More information on all of these games can be found after the break.
