Xbox game releases — February 8th to 14th

By Sean Carey,
The start of the year is generally always quiet in terms of new game releases, but it looks like things are starting to pick up slowly. Next week, 13 new games are heading to the Xbox platform, with arguably the biggest being Tarsier Studios' Little Nightmares 2. The sequel takes place sometime after Six's escape from the Maw. She then meets a young boy named Mono, and the two must work together to make their way through a crumbling city to reach a place called The Signal Tower. Fans of the first game will be eager to see what's instore for Six in her next outing.

Aside from Little Nightmares 2, we have a bunch of smaller releases, including UltraGoodness2 from Rataika Games, which looks to be an easy 1000G.
