A trio of new Xbox One games are now available to download through the Xbox Games Store.
NIS America will bring Stranger of Sword City to the Xbox One this week, and I believe it’s the first first-person dungeon-crawler for the console. And in another possible first, players will be able to choose between two different art styles: the beautiful and fantastical style of Yoko Tsukamoto, or the cute character graphicse of Oxijiyen.
Also available this week is a pair of racing titles, which will offer two vastly different experiences of their own. Ubisoft’s TrackMania Turbo is a wild and crazy “fantasy racer” that includes 200 “outlandish” tracks spread across five unique worlds. Meanwhile, Milestone’s Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo is a racer that’s grounded in the mud and mess of rally racing.
More information on all of these games can be found after the break.
