Xbox Store Today: Butcher, NBA Playgrounds, Lethal League

Three new games are now available to download through the Xbox Games Store…

First up is Butcher, a side-scrolling shooter from Crunching Koalas that resembles a 2D homage to Doom. Players who download the game now for the Xbox One will get to become “a cyborg programmed to eradicate the last remnants of humanity.”

Also available for the Xbox One today is NBA Playgrounds, a new arcade-style basketball game from Saber Interactive. Players will unlock hundreds of NBA superstars, and fly high through the air in two-on-two pickup games.

Finally today, the baseball-themed fighting game Lethal League is now available to download for the Xbox One. In Lethal League, players “have to hit an anti-gravity ball into the face of [their] opponent to win.” Sure, why not?

More information about all of these games is available after the break.

Xbox One Games

Butcher is a fast-paced 2D shooter and a blood-soaked love letter to the cult classics of the genre. As a cyborg programmed to eradicate the last remnants of humanity, your sole purpose is to… well… annihilate anything that moves. So grab your weapon of choice (from chainsaws, to shotguns, to grenade launchers) and kill your way through underground hideouts, post-apocalyptic cities, jungles, and more. And if you’re feeling creative, there are plenty of other ways to end your enemies’ misery – hooks, lava pits, saws… no death will ever be the same again.

NBA Playgrounds
Classic NBA arcade action is back! Take your “A” game to the playground and beat the best in high-flying 2-on-2 basketball action. Practice your skills offline, play with up to three others on your Xbox or take your talents online to posterize your opponents with acrobatic jams and ridiculous displays of skill. Collect your favorite players from a massive roster of current and retired NBA superstars from every team. Travel to playgrounds across the globe to compete in online matches against the very best with your massive arsenal of dunks and moves. Use your fine-tuned skills to take on the master of the playground himself – Allen Iverson.

Lethal League
Lethal League is a competitive projectile fighting game where you have to hit an anti-gravity ball into the face of your opponent to win. The ball speeds up with every strike, up to explosively extreme velocities. Play locally or battle it out online.
