Two big new games released today making it seem as though this will be a good week for new Xbox One games even though it’s getting quite late in the year. First up is Shantae: Half-Genie Hero from developer WayForward. Half-Genie Hero is the first game to feature Shantae in fully animated HD glory and the first game to bring Shantae to current-gen consoles. The game carries over some of Shantae’s hit moves from previous games as well as throwing new in combos to allow players to experiment. There’s plenty of collectibles to find and worlds to explore in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, even after completing the story. Shantae: Half-Genie Hero can be purchased here for $19.99.
The other game to release today are the first two episodes of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, the third season of Telltale Games hit series. The new season continues to examine Clementine and promises to force players into making difficult decisions. Choices from previous seasons will carry over to the new season and will make tough decisions all the more challenging. There will be five episodes in the new season, however; only the first two episodes released today. The Walking Dead: A New Frontier‘s entire seasons can be purchased here for $24.99. Those looking to purchase individual episodes can go here and here for the first and second episodes respectively for $4.99 each.
