Xbox Game Pass for console coming soon: NBA 2K20, Pikuniku and Train Sim World

By Sam Quirke,
Along with the expected and highly anticipated Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Xbox has just announced three more Xbox Game Pass games we can look forward to on console very soon: NBA 2K20, Train Sim World and Pikuniku.

Xbox Game Pass games coming soon

According to the latest Xbox Wire post, subscribers won't have to wait long at all to try out Train Sim World 2020 and NBA 2K20, both arriving on Xbox Game Pass for console tomorrow, March 5th. NBA 2K20 has a reasonable 3.5 rating on TA, but its arrival on Xbox Game Pass might incite some players to go after an elusive completion – only one tracked gamer currently has its hardest achievement.

Train Sim 2020 has a bunch of DLC attached to it, and while sometimes DLC is added to Xbox Game Pass for no additional cost, we wouldn't expect it this time around. The last time our own BulletLukey ran the numbers, the full 100% completion could cost players over $400.

The heavily hyped Metroidvania sequel Ori and the Will of the Wisps arrives on March 11th. Heidi got hands on with it a couple of weeks ago and loved it – you can check out her Will of the Wisps preview for more thoughts and info.

Pikuniku is making its Xbox debut straight into the subscription service, releasing on March 12th. This eccentric little puzzle game has some LocoRoco vibes and has a decent 79% Metacritic rating for its Nintendo Switch incarnation. You can check out a gameplay trailer below:

We don't yet have an achievement list for Ori or for Pikuniku, though in the case of the latter our PikuNiku achievements list on Steam at least gives us an idea.
