I’ve heard people make the case that Uno was the Xbox 360’s first “must-have” game, and in a lot of ways, they’re right on the money. The Xbox 360’s library was fairly sparse in Spring 2006, so jumping online and playing a few hands of Uno was great fun. Today, Ubisoft is bringing Uno back for another go-round on the Xbox One.
Also available from Ubisoft this week is Grow Up, a new platformer for the Xbox One. Grow Up stars a lovable robot named BUD and he has to collect the missing pieces from his “parental spaceship” and make it back to the moon.
Finally this week, Milestone is back with Valentino Rossi, another game in their growing stable of racing simulators. This time, Xbox One owners will be able to take part in the entire 2016 MotoGP season, while also reliving the high points from Rossi’s career.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break.
