New Xbox Releases: Week Beginning September 17th, 2018

By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
This week may well bring along 14 new releases, but only two of those titles will be showing up at retailers and only then will they be showing up in North America. In other regions, they're all digital only titles, at least for now. ID@Xbox brings along eight of those titles, with the remaining six being quite a mixed bag. There's the first title in the 8-Bit RTS Series, a Scribblenauts pack, a bundle of beat 'em up titles from Capcom, a racing title, and Elijah Woods' movie/game. For more information on each of those titles and more, check out the list below, and scroll to the bottom for prices and download links:

Wenjia

Release date: September 21st
The world of WENJIA is one that shifts between the realms of Matter and Energy.

The realms of Matter and Energy mirror each other in perfect duality. However, certain entities in the Energy Realm have evolved into matter-less sentient beings. The game’s kitten protagonist (a cat-shaped energy entity) and spirits are all examples of such beings. Pure energy entities can travel freely between the two realms.

The story of WENJIA thus unfolds…

A forest’s longstanding tranquility is shattered by a sudden earthquake. As lava bursts forth from the ground, the mountain’s spirits find themselves surrounded by fiery death. By controlling a kitten, the player must overcome numerous obstacles in the wild to reach the burning heart of the mountain and rescue the spirits before it’s too late.
