Re-releases of video games on the Xbox One being remarketed as special editions isn’t something new but today sees the arrival of an almost ridiculous number of titles getting a push with new content and a cool new title. Funnily enough, there are no ‘Ultimate Editions’ (the usual branding for re-releases) in this batch of games. Instead Microsoft and the publishers have been a bit more… creative.
First up, we have #IDARB: Tightwad Edition. This re-release contains the regular version of the game as well as the Walking Dead / Invincible and Masters of the Universe Expansion Packs. Here’s the official description: You can now battle everything from Moustache Cops and Breakfast to the Heroes of Eternia and the Walking Dead, all for a super low price that even Skeletor would consider paying. You too can now hold your own #IDARB couch parties with 7 of your closest friends or play up to 4 vs 4 over two consoles in head-to-head online matches. This bundle has everything you’d ever want from an eSport jumping future arena ball game, so get it today!
The #IDARB: Tightwad Edition is currently selling with a 50% discount for a limited time, which is probably what inspired the new title.
The next re-release is The BunnyLord Pro Hater Pack which contains two full games, Olli Olli 2: XL Edition and Not A Hero: Super Snazzy Edition (a re-release within a re-release). Here’s the official description of OlliOlli 2: Olli Olli2: XL Edition: the definitive edition of the acclaimed skating game. It introduces the brand-new Free-Skate mode; extended, chilled levels to learn the ropes and nail those expert tricks, or simply cruise and flow like never before. The sequel boasts all new ramps and epic hills allowing for monster air and multi-route levels plus an expanded combo system, giving you more control than ever.
And here’s the description of Not A Hero: Super Snazzy Edition: Not A Hero: Super Snazzy Edition: join the Campaign trail in a funstoppable 2.25D pixelated action opus from Roll7. Shoot, slide and execute your way through 28 levels of incredibly British action and humour as you persuade the world to ‘Vote BunnyLord’.
The BunnyLord Pro Hater Pack is currently selling with a 15% discount. While Olli Olli 2: XL Edition and Not A Hero: Super Snazzy Edition can also be bought separately with their own discounts.
