New Xbox Releases: Week Beginning July 9th, 2018

By Rebecca Smith, 4 months ago
Last week, I happily said that things were calming down and we were about to enter a quieter summer period. Let's forget I ever said that. This week there are a massive 19 new titles coming to Xbox One, although a couple of those are regional releases of titles that have already become available elsewhere.

At retail, there's a Left 4 Dead-ish battle against an alien invasion, monsters stranded on a series of islands, and the first of the Shining games to hit Xbox One. Europe finally gets Lego The Incredibles, while America gets MXGP Pro. Digitally, the reimagined version of Defiance is available to all this week as a free to play game, while the delayed Epic Loon should make an appearance and there's a new ACA NEOGEO title. Finally, ID@Xbox brings along the remaining 11 titles, including one that may seem a bit of a surprise. For more information on each title, check out the list below, and scroll to the bottom for prices and download links:

Dragons were long thought to be extinct, and because Yuma holds the ability to transform into the Shining Dragon, he was taken as a captive of the Empire. With the help of the Dragoneers, Sonia, princess of Astoria, pleads with Yuma to aid them in their fight to save their land from the Empire’s dominion. Typically timid, will Yuma find the courage to realize the strength he has within him?
