mightynonine-header

Today’s Xbox Games Store update will look very similar to anyone who has already studied up on this week’s PlayStation Store additions. But school’s out for the Summer, so stop your studying and start playing more games…

This week’s first new release is Mighty No. 9, Keiji Inafune’s spiritual successor to the Mega Man franchise. The side-scroller has had a very troubled development cycle with multiple delays, but it’s finally ready to go for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360. Inafune previously warned fans that the Xbox 360 version of the game would be delayed, but it’s available to download through the Xbox Game Store right now.

Also available this week is Pac-Man 256, an isometric “infinite mazer” from Crossy Road developer Hipster Whale. Previously available on mobile devices, the Xbox One launch comes compete with a co-op multiplayer mode for up to 4 players and several new themes.

Finally this week, Tequila Works has launched their side-scrolling zombie game, Deadlight: Director’s Cut, for the Xbox One. Originally released four years ago for the Xbox 360, the Director’s Cut adds enhanced graphics, improved gameplay and controls, and extra game modes.

More information on all these games (and a few others) can be found after the break.

You use your phone or tablet to draw weird and funny things like “pitcher of nachos” or “death by trombone.” The other players type in what they think the (probably terrible) drawing is and those become the multiple-choice wrong answers. Then everyone – even an audience of potentially thousands – tries to guess the REAL answer.

Into the Belly of the Beast ($16.49)
