Xbox One makes a splash at Chinese game expo.


Microsoft has a big presence at this year’s ChinaJoy, the largest gaming and digital entertainment expo in China and Asia.

The company dated Xbox One for a September 23 release in the country, making it the first gaming and entertainment console approved for sale in China coinciding with the Shanghai Free Trade Zone one-year anniversary, and revealed a handful of new games for the platform, some Chinese-made.

Here’s what we’ve been able to spot through Chinese coverage. These are in addition to the previously covered Neverwinter and King of Wushu.


The Kickstarter-funded roguelike real-time strategy pixel art game from Onipunks is coming to Xbox One, and it has a new look. The game was previously announced for PS Vita, 3DS, PC, Mac, Linux, and Android. More footage here. (If Google is translating the source correctly, this will launch first on Xbox One before other platforms. This would make sense, given a recent update on the Kickstarter mentions Onipunks signing a new deal.)


Yingpei Games, formerly Epic Games China and now a separate entity entirely, is working on Mercury, a third-person shooter for Xbox One. More footage here.

Mercenary Ops 2

Also from Yingpei Games, the sequel to online third-person shooter Mercenary Ops is coming to Xbox One. More footage here.

Steins;Gate Series

5pb.’s Steins;Gate is coming to Xbox One in some form. Not much is known, but it appeared in the ChinaJoy Xbox One games montage.

Naughty Kitties

Coconut Island Games’ tower defense and endless runner hybrid Naughty Kitties, currently available as a free download on iOS, is coming to Xbox One with a split-screen mode. View footage here.

Judgment of Rage

Judgement of Rage is a 2D side-scrolling action game that mixes “nirvana and combo” from Zeon Tech due out in late 2014. It will have anime cutscenes (1:58).

QQ Games

Happy Landlords and Happy Mahjong from QQ are coming to Xbox One.
