Xbox: Games in March 2021 News

Xbox Game News: Games in March 2021 Whether you own an Xbox One or an Xbox Series X / S, you’re sure to expect some interesting games to show up on your LCD, QLED, or OLED TV. With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of eight titles that might pique your curiosity. Between the return of a previous Xbox glory and the arrival of the sixth episode in a series that the American machine has long shunned, we bring you futuristic races, platforms, horror and adventure to share.

Pacemaker

The height for a futuristic racing game that features racing cars at full speed, isn’t it long overdue? The software developed by R8 Games is already available on PC and PlayStation 4 and has not yet found its way to the Xbox stable. After several postponements, the developers assure him: Pacer will arrive on March 9 on large “X” machines. Pacer was conceived by former members of the Liverpool / Psygnosis studios, the ancestors of WipEout, and offers everything a game of this type could be expected from, namely speed, winding lines, technology and music. With 14 tracks and a high level artistic direction, the R8 Games software is indeed the spiritual successor to WipEout. Available March 9th (already available on PS4 and PC)

Mundaun

Tired of the America games happening all the time? Mundaun is set in the Swiss Alps and tells the story of a young man who went to the heart of a dark valley to investigate the death of his grandfather. Unfortunately, the information hunter will fall victim to an old and evil evil. Edited by MWM Interactive and developed by Hidden Fields, the software is drawn entirely in pencil and challenges brave adventurers to solve puzzles while surviving various enemy encounters. Mundaun hopes to bring us a particularly original horror epic with his fear management system. Available on March 16 (also for PS4, PS5 and PC)

Stubbs the zombie

Oldies must have heard of this funny zombie. Originally released on PC and the very first Xbox in 2005, Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse is best known for its surprising affiliation with Halo. Yes, the Futrusit FPS. The creator of the studio was first and foremost none other than one of the co-founders of Bungie, Alex Seropian. Then the motor used was simply Halo’s. Eventually the music was composed by Michael Salvatori, who, accompanied by Marty O’Donnell, signed several OST adventures with Master Chief. Stubbs the Zombie is therefore back in a reworked version to once again offer a crazy journey in which every part of Stubbs’ body serves as a weapon. If you want to send your pancreas to the head of your opponents, you know what to do. Available from March 16 (also for PS4, Switch and PC)

Yakuza 6: The Song of Life

Xbox consoles, long deprived of the yakuza saga, are gradually catching up. After Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza Kiwami 2, Yakuza 3, 4, 5 and Yakuza: Like a dragon, it is Yakuza 6: The Song of Life’s turn to land on American machines. The SEGA software was integrated directly into the Game Pass on the day it was released and this time it will take place in Hiroshima. As we explained in our review, this sixth work is certainly one of the best episodes in the franchise since it was first slapped on PlayStation 2 in 2006. The software developed by Ryū ga Gotoku Studio offers an explosive cocktail of humor, jams and mini-games won many Fans. Available March 16 (already available on PS4)

It takes two

After the delivery of A Way Out, Josef Fares and his studio Hazelight return with It Takes Two with another co-op piece for two. The principle remains broadly the same: thanks to the split screen, each player controls their character and must work skillfully with their teammates to make progress. Here the adventurers find themselves in the shoes of a pair that is about to break and has been magically transformed into dolls. Inspired by romantic comedies, It Takes Two promises a shared adventure full of humor and different situations. In our review we mentioned both the originality and the successful mechanics. Finally, as with A Way Out, it will be possible to invite someone else to join us online for free, even if they do not own the game. Available from March 26th (also for PS4, PS5 and PC) Buy now, it will take two on Fnac.com

Balan Wonderworld

Let’s be honest. We have some doubts about the potential of Balan Wonderworld. The demo that recently became available didn’t quite put us at ease. The fact that this is the new work of Yuji Naka (the father of Sonic and Nights) still forces us to see this new platformer in 3D, a genre that is unfortunately under threat. Announced during the Xbox Showcase in July 2020, Balan Wonderworld offers the player the opportunity to play as Leo and Emma, ​​two young heroes who can benefit from the powers of various magical costumes. If you’d like to understand the game mechanics a little better, we invite you to check out our gameplay videos. More than 80 transformations are on the program for a colorful adventure that should inspire the youngest. If the quality is there, of course. Available from March 26th (also for PS4, PS5, Switch and PC) Buy Balan Wonderworld in the Microsoft Store

Kaze and the wild masks

If you’re a regular at Jeuxvideo.com, you must already know Kaze and the Wild Masks. We noticed this little 2D platform game during the Xbox Summer Game Fest in July 2020. A barely hidden declaration of love to Donkey Kong Country, Kaze and the wild masks is a classic yet highly effective platformer. Here the rabbit has the ability to use the power of various masks to achieve its goals. Plants and vegetables are the villains of this story, which will span 30 main levels and 50 bonus levels. Available on March 26th (also for PS4, Switch and PC) Buy Kaze and the Wild Masks on Amazon

Narita boy

Narita Boy was developed by Studio Koba and published by Team17 and puts the player in a virtual universe reminiscent of Tron, in which our avatar, armed with his impressive techno sword, has to face corrupt beings. The retro vibe of the 1980s can be felt in every pixel and in every Synthwave score. With this action-adventure game, which has been in production for 4 years, its designers promise us a rapid pace as well as unforgettable encounters with treacherous bosses. We only ask for verification. Available on March 30th (also for PS4, Switch and PC) Read also:
