Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse on Xbox One

Gone are the days when Xbox One owners could complain about the lack of games to play on their console. Not counting the addition of the massive catalogue of Xbox 360 titles that are now available to play on the Xbox One due to the newly added backwards compatibility, a large number of big budget AAA games have already launched on Xbox One in the first quarter of 2016 and the sheer volume of smaller indie titles has continued to snowball. In addition to these, over 40 new games were revealed at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco this past week and many more are expected throughout 2016 and beyond.
