It is the summer of games and there are so many hot games coming out on Xbox. With so many five stand-out titles, I hand-picked five to keep an eye on.
Long Live The Queen
Long Live the Queen begins with the young princess Elodie arriving at the castle of Nova after the untimely death of her mother, the Queen. She has no time to mourn, but must immediately begin making preparations to become the next Novan ruler. While she frantically studies and trains to raise her skills, others attempt to take advantage of Nova’s vulnerability. Elodie must fend off invasions, assassins, schemes, and civil war in order to survive long enough to be crowned Queen.
Long Live the Queen mixes and pulls together three genres: RPG, simulation, and strategy into a unique formula. The developer continued with their own ideology,“It’s not so much that it uses elements from all three of those standard genres and more than the gameplay is something entirely different which might be described as any of those three. The gameplay consists of choosing what skills Elodie learns and then deciding how to respond to a series of events and crises that happen within her country. Many choices are not available or will lead to disastrous outcomes unless Elodie has sufficient skill to handle the problem effectively, and every choice has ongoing consequences for the story and the country.”
Matchpoint – Tennis Championships
Matchpoint – Tennis Championships offers a dynamic and immersive gaming experience with its extensive career mode, unique rivalry system, authentic ball physics, and advanced multiplayer mode.

Unprecedented player control and true-to-life ball physics are combined to make Matchpoint – Tennis Championships an authentic tennis gaming experience in which every swing and hit counts across the clay, hard, and grass courts.
Wayward Strand is a beautiful heartfelt interactive story, told in a very unique and curious way. You play Casey Beaumaris, an intrepid teenage journalist – as she visits an airborne hospital for the first time. Uncover the airship’s mysteries, and explore the lives of its inhabitants.
Set in the summer of 1978, Casey Beaumaris is attempting to make the most of her vacation, when her mum asks her to spend a long weekend helping out at the airborne hospital where she works.
Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Klonoa franchise, the vibrant and joyful side-scrolling platform game is back with a graphic revamp for a new generation of players to discover and fans of the first game to revisit. Leaning on the nostalgia and great memories of the series, this trailer brings back the song played in the 1991 commercial in Japan.
Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series features Klonoa: Door to Phantomile and Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil, with an adjustable difficulty level and two-player co-op option. A demo is now also available for consoles, which includes the first stages of the two games to give players a taste of the lively world of Klonoa.
