It is a wild week for indie lovers! Only a day after the /twitchgaming Showcase: ID@Xbox event, which brought us tons of new trailers and Game Pass announcements, Nintendo has graced us with another episode of its Indie World Showcase today.
And, as always, some of the games featured on Nintendo’s show are also coming to Xbox. Check them out down below!
Bomb Rush Cyberfunk
Team Reptile’s Jet Set Radio-like game is coming to Steam and Nintendo Switch in 2022, with “other platforms to follow about a week later”.
Team Reptile brings you Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, 1 second per second of highly advanced funkstyle. In a world from the mind of Dion Koster, where self-styled crews are equipped with personal boostpacks, new heights of graffiti are reached. Start your own cypher and dance, paint, trick, face off with the cops and stake your claim to the extrusions and cavities of a sprawling metropolis in an alternate future set to the musical brainwaves of Hideki Naganuma.
FAR: Changing Tides
Developed by Okomotive and published by Frontier, FAR: Changing Tides was already announced for Xbox One back in June.
Follow protagonist, Toe, who finds themselves trapped in a drowned landscape with nothing but an abandoned ship to call home. Explore a beautifully realised flooded world, face puzzles both above and below the surface, and experience the thrill of captaining a unique seafaring vessel.
Boyfriend Dungeon was originally announced for Xbox Game Pass during March’s Twitch & ID@Xbox event, and a new trailer revealed the game would be releasing today — and it has now shadowdropped into the Game Pass catalogue!
Romance your swords! Capture the hearts of weapons to level them up in this “shack-and-slash” dungeon crawling adventure. For your summer job, you’re tasked with clearing the creatures in “the dunj”. Soon you discover weapons you find transform into cuties… and they’re SINGLE! (What a craaazy coincidence because you also happen to be up for grabs yourself.) Spend the cash you earn on romantic outings to forge precious moments with your lovers and work together to clear the rampant monster infestations, because after all, a couple that slays together, stays together.
Islanders: Console Edition
Coatsink’s Islanders: Console Edition is available now on Nintendo Switch, and it is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on August 26.
ISLANDERS: Console Edition is a relaxing minimalist strategy game about building cities on colourful islands. With simple and intuitive building mechanics, you have the freedom to create your own cities on the rugged cliffs of the game’s islands in half an hour or less. Explore these procedurally generated Islands from lush green grasslands to dry deserts and snowy mountainscapes, expanding your settlements from sprawling villages to vast cities.
Curious Expedition 2
Originally released on PC earlier this year, Curious Expedition 2 has launched today on Nintendo Switch, and it is coming to Xbox later this year!
Curious Expedition 2 is a narrative roguelike set in a reimagined version of the late 19th Century that uses procedural gameplay and story elements to create completely unique and epic adventures every time you play.
