Funk of Titans Announced For Xbox One

The Xbox One’s library is a bit lean on side-scrolling platformers, but that’s about to change with Funk of Titans. The game combines a funky ancient game, with a motif that bears a striking resemblance to Soul Fjord on the OUYA. Where that was a freemium hack ‘n slash, this is an action-platformer. You’ll hack enemies up while grooving to a nice soul soundtrack. It will be released on January 9 and only set you back $9. Given that most games launch on the platform at $20, this is quite a welcome surprise.
