Xbox Store Today: Lichdom Battlemage, Bandai Namco Arcade Series, more

The Xbox Games Store is in for a magical update this week…

First up is Lichdom: Battlemage, a first-person spellcasting game for the Xbox One from Xaviant. Players will take control of a wizard named Dragon, using his elemental magic to cut a swath through the countryside in search of Shax, the evil overlord who killed your family.

Also available this week is a quartet of games that have a different air of magic about them. Nostalgia is a powerful thing and Bandai Namco’s “Arcade Series” is overflowing with good feelings about the past. That’s because Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, and Dig Dug are now available to download for the Xbox One. While most players probably own these games in some form or another, it’s nice to see video game history represented on the modern day consoles.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.
