At the TGS 2022 Xbox stream, many new ports were announced for Xbox platforms including updates on existing games slated for release this year. The highlights are Guilty Gear Strive and BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle Special Edition coming to Xbox Game Pass in 2023 for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows. Other reveals include Ni no Kuni Remastered and Ni no Kuni II for Xbox Game Pass with the former available now. Danganronpa V3 is also out now on Xbox Game Pass. Fuga: Melodies of Steel is also out now on Xbox Game Pass with Fuga 2 coming next year. Watch the trailer for Ni no Kuni on Xbox below with the Xbox Game Pass TGS 2022 announcements for Game Pass and more in this feature.
Xbox Game Pass TGS 2022 announcements from Japan
The following games from Japan were announced or released in Xbox Game Pass:
- Fuga: Melodies of Steel
- Danganronpa V3
- Ni no Kuni Remastered
- Persona 5 Royal (new trailer)
- Ni no Kuni II (2023)
- Guilty Gear Strive (2023)
- BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle Special Edition (2023)
A lot of late ports, but some are more than welcome. I’m glad Guilty Gear Strive is finally hitting Xbox platforms. It is one of the best fighters ever, and it is going to be great with cross play (assuming that makes it in) on Xbox platforms. BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle Special Edition is a surprise, but a good one. More people need to play it, and I hope it includes rollback netcode. It is going to be interesting to see what Microsoft reveals for the service following the Xbox Game Pass TGS 2022 announcements.
Other announcements from the show include a new trailer for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, Exoprimal getting a story trailer, and more. Overall, this was a great showing from Xbox for those who have Xbox Game Pass and haven’t played many of these older titles.
For the future titles, I hope Guilty Gear Strive gets a retail release on Xbox in North America at least. Having Persona 5 Royal get one, is great, but we need more retail releases as well. After all these announcements, hopefully Microsoft can work with Koei Tecmo to bring some of Gust’s games to the platform. Gust is clearly not against doing Xbox going by my interview.
