Every week, numerous games launch on Xbox One, but which ones truly stand out? Here are some of the biggest and most anticipated titles launching across Microsoft’s platforms next week. We have a few new smaller releases on Xbox One, but there are still a few surprises here and there. Notably, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is finally launching on the console, and The Surge 2: Kraken offers an interesting take on the third-person action genre. With that in mind, here are all the best games launching next week, between January 13 and 17.
A few months ago, Bandai Namco unveiled Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot to the world. It’s an upcoming fighting game, but one that lets you explore the world of these quirky characters. You can go around, talk to everyone, while also taking part in epic battles.
