We are starting today's list of the most anticipated Xbox Series X|S games releasing in January 2024 with Turnip Boy Robs A Bank. While the shocking and somewhat odd title of this game is certainly eye-catching, it appears extremely solid. For those unaware, this game is a direct sequel to the indie game Turniop Boy Commits Tax Evasion. As you can clearly see, there is quite an odd naming scheme with these titles. This beloved and charming action-platformer is a title that players who have played its predecessor undoubtedly anticipate.

The game features rogue-lite elements as well. This makes for an experience that is both rewarding for returning players and inviting for new faces. This is wonderful, as it allows players to enjoy this title regardless of their experience with the first title in the series. The characters in this game are also a highlight, with each of them being written to be hilarious in their own right. All around, Turnip Boy Robs A Bank is set to kick off this new year right when it releases on January 18th, 2024.

4. Howl

Howl – Release Trailer

We are following up on our last entry with another great title for players to look forward to this month. Despite being released on PC back in 2023, the game is set to come to Xbox Series X|S. This will not only bring the game to a new audience but also give players a new way to experience the game. One of the critical aspects of the game that immediately differentiates it from other titles is its art style. The direction of the game's art, as well as the visual techniques used, make for an almost awe-inspiring treat for the eyes.

A unique aspect of the game's presentation is that the game is painted as the player goes along. This not only gives the game a fantastical feel but also weaves together the player's journey like a tapestry of sorts. This is only enhanced by the sheer amount of content in the game. In total, there are sixty levels for players to enjoy, each with its own secrets to find and enemies to face. So, if you are looking for one of the most anticipated releases for Xbox Series X|S.

For the next entry on our list, we have a game that JRPG fans are clamoring for. Here, we have Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth. For fans of the Yakuza series, this title brings the expected gravitas and quality to a new setting.

The game has two main characters that series fans will no doubt be familiar with. However, for new players to the franchise, this game does a fantastic job of not only bringing players up to speed but doing so in a thoroughly entertaining way.

One of the best aspects of the game that is undoubtedly a great selling point is its narrative. The Yakuza titles, and by extension, the Like A Dragon series, have been beloved for their stories. This can be seen in not only the outpouring of support for these games. But it is also evident in the level of quality present in each title. The changes to the game's combat bring with it a new level of strategy. This is sure to not only vary the experience but enhance it as well.

Along the way, players will be faced with many hardships and puzzles for them to overcome. All of this is packaged within a visually stunning and smooth gameplay that is sure to impress when players get their hands on the game.

One of the game's core strengths is its ability to immerse the player within its world. This is a testament not only to the level of quality that has gone into the game's environments and character designs but also to the world itself. Everything from the game's established lore to the revamped cinematic style absolutely shines here. This makes it a great title to recommend for both Prince of Persia fans and newcomers alike.
