The company has announced an abundance of titles set to arrive on the service in the coming weeks, including a bunch of ports we’ve been hoping would hit the platform for months.
Headlining this selection is Yakuza 0, a fantastic prequel in the Japanese crime thriller franchise which showcases where Kazuma Kiryu got his start is the dreary yet stylish underworld.
This marks the first time SEGA’s beloved series has landed on Microsoft’s platform, showing a genuine effort from Xbox to embrace Japanese properties like never before. It’s always been a western-facing machine, and it’s clear Phil Spencer wants to change that perspective.

Following in its footsteps is Kingdom Hearts 3, the final chapter in Tetsuya Nomura’s Dark Seeker Saga. It’s a brilliantly charming adventure that earned 4.5/5 in our review, even if at times it is a little too easy. ReMind, its recent expansion, but these complaints are put to rest with a number of excellent encounters.
“Re:Mind is an excellent expansion on the existing RPG, building upon the original ending in some fascinatingly unexpected ways. However, it’s one that only hardcore fans will truly benefit from, otherwise you’ll be lost in an endless deluge of complicated character motivations and frankly silly plot developments,” reads our review.
Other games making their way to Xbox Game Pass through February include Two Point Hospital, Ninja Gaiden 2, Indivisible and more.
