It's not goodbye, but more a see you later.


Microsoft will remove three more games from Xbox Game Pass later this month. The trio of titles includes a beloved RPG developed with Studio Ghibli, a snowboarding game, and an FPS that involves searching derelict spaceships.

Spotted by Wario64 on X (formerly known as Twitter), Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is probably the biggest title leaving Xbox Game Pass on March 16. The remastered RPG from Level-5 originally arrived on the subscription service in 2022 when it first launched on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
