Xbox Store Today: Kholat, King of the Monsters, Jump Stars, A Hole New World

The last Xbox Games Store update before the start of the 2017 E3 Expo is here, and here’s what you can download on your Xbox One beginning today…

Kholat is an exploration adventure game where players attempt to discover the truth behind the the real-life Dyatlov Pass incident. Nine hikers died under mysterious circumstances in the Ural Mountains, but the horror starts to raump up as you try to figure out what really happened.

Three other titles are also available to download today, including King of the Monsters, a monster-battling game originally released by SNK for the NeoGeo in 1991. Xbox One owners will also be able to download Jump Stars, a “bonkers” multiplayer party game set within a violent game show, and A Hole New World, a retro-themed platformer that looks like it would have fit right in on the NES.

You can learn more about all of these games after the break.

Xbox One Games

Narrated by one of the most popular British actors, Sean Bean, and powered by Unreal Engine 4, Kholat is an exploration adventure game with elements of horror, inspired by a true event known as the Dyatlov Pass incident – a mysterious death of nine Russian hikers, which led to countless, unconfirmed hypotheses. The player will plunge directly into the boundless scenery of the inhospitable Ural Mountains with the task to find out what really happened. In the course of events, you may come across more speculations than expected…

King of the Monsters
King of the Monsters is an action game released by SNK in 1991. Players choose from one of the six monsters available, and battle their way across Japan in order to claim the title of strongest monster. In addition to normal attacks such as punches and kicks, master more destructive techniques such as flame and beam attacks to overcome the enemies.

Jump Stars
Introducing Jump Stars, the bonkers new local multiplayer party game which pits player against player in a bizarre, violent game show – whilst they collectively compete to save their skins. Cooperate as a team to get as much score as you can, then jump, punch, break, munch, explode, and crunch your teammates out the way to steal first place!

A Hole New World
The city is being invaded by monsters from the Upside Down World! You, the Potion Master, must defeat evil all alone, with no tutorials or “Easy Mode” to assist you. You’ll have to rely on the help of Fäy, your companion fairy, and your potions! Jump and shoot like they did in the good ol’ arcade days. Fight enemies in your world and in the Upside Down World! Defeat gigantic bosses and acquire their powers!
