Octopath Traveler, Undertale come to Xbox Game Pass this month

Xbox Game Pass is getting another batch of games this March. The new group includes some heavy hitters like Octopath Traveler and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life, as well as indie favorites including Undertale.

The latest batch of games comes at a particularly busy time for the service. Game Pass subscribers just got a total of 20 Bethesda games following Microsoft’s successful acquisition of the company. Microsoft is also bringing Outriders to the service on April 1. The newly announced games will fill the space between those two content drops.

The biggest addition is Octopath Traveler, which will be available on console and PC March 25. The retro RPG originally launched as a Nintendo Switch exclusive before finding its way onto PC in 2019. Yakuza 6: The Song of Life also drops on Cloud, PC, and console that same day. Microsoft previously confirmed that the game would come to its service at this year’s Game Awards.

Undertale is now available for Cloud, console, and PC users. The indie game has become a cult classic since its 2015 release, propelling it to meme infamy.

PC players have a big day coming on March 18. The service will add Star Wars Squadrons, Nier: Automata, and Torchlight 3 to the service on that day. Gangster strategy game Empire of Sin also joins the PC roster as well as Cloud and console on March 18.

The latest batch is rounded out by some brand-new indie games. Stylish detective game Genesis Noir lands on console and PC on March 25, and action-adventure game Narita Boy will be available on Cloud, console, and PC on March 30.
