Now Playing: Cuphead - 10 Minutes Of Boss Fights And Platforming Gameplay - Pax West 2017

Looking for something new to play on Xbox One this week? There are quite a few new and exciting games out this week to choose from.

Starting off, EA's FIFA 18 launches in full this week, following its release through EA Access. In addition to the bread-and-butter on-field action, FIFA 18 brings back the single-player mode, The Journey, which is now called The Journey: Hunter Returns.

Another notable new release this week is the amazing-looking and very difficult independent game Cuphead. Taking its inspiration from 1930s cartoons and featuring hand-drawn art and an original jazz soundtrack, Cuphead is a side-scrolling action game. You can play solo or with a partner through couch co-op.

Also out this week is Forza Motorsport 7's Ultimate Edition, which unlocks on September 29 ahead of its release for everyone the following week. Additionally, the next Pinball FX game, Pinball FX3, lands this week, as does the next episode in Telltale's Batman series.

You can see a full rundown of new Xbox One games coming out this week below, as rounded up on the Xbox Wire.

I love the look of Cuphead; the art style is amazing, but honestly, I'm calling it now, I don't think it's going to review well.

The gameplay videos just haven't done enough to convince me it's the classic we all hope it is.

@domiddian: I'm expecting Cuphead to review very well, mainly because all of the gaming outlets I've seen mention it have all been very happy with what they've played at conferences over the years. The only complaint I've ever heard about the game (aside from the scrapped platforming levels that are now completely re-worked) is that the game is difficult, which I truly hope isn't something the game will be docked for community-wide (I expect a couple reviews to complain about it, but that's it).

@domiddian: Well while the game is pretty hyped, it's still just a side-scroller "indie" game, I can see it not reviewing as well as people would expect

@andfx8: So was Ori and that was a fantastic game. I know the stigma is there, but as a gamer "side-scroller" and "indie" are not terms that really bother me...

@domiddian: Ori wasn't as hyped as this, and it was also a Metroidvania game, which people love. (I also liked Ori)

I didn't even realise Cuphead was releasing so soon! Feels like there has been barely any publicity for this game.

I hope cuphead is a success, the developer has taken alot of risks with that game, remortgage homes, quitting their jobs, though its abit strange, they release the game on xbox one which has the smaller player base, and a high percentage of xbox players don't like anything other that shooters and driving games, Why didn't Microsoft give them the extra money needed to improve the game, they want it to be an xbox console exclusive, but are just paying to publish it, the developer would be better off doing the same as Ninja theory and releasing the game digital only, so a publisher isn't really needed and then just release on every system possible, the game looks like it would sell better on the Switch.

@Runeweaver: The dev says there's nothing stopping them from releasing on other platforms in the future, they are just putting out the Xbox and Windows versions now because that's what's ready and tested so far, I think they'll be OK. Yeah it would be cool for them to have a wider audience. Hope the Windows version doesn't get pirated to hell before they are able to do that.

"Yes, this Cuphead game is exclusive to Xbox and PC (with Steam and WIn10 versions at launch and a GOG release likely shortly after). There will likely be a Mac version down the road and possibly a Linux version beyond that (unless we lose our houses or whatever)... We own the Cuphead IP."

Also they are having DLC packs of 10-15 bosses as the game goes on in the future. Hopefully enough people buy those as well.. It may end up costing as much as a full game as time goes on!

@girlusocrazy: I'm just waiting for when the big companies announce their own "oldies cartoon games"
