Surprise! Max: The Curse of Brotherhood Hits Xbox One Tomorrow
Looks like I’ll be gaming on my Xbox One this weekend.
The magic marker-packing adventurer, Max, is set to make his debut on Microsoft’s new console tomorrow, December 20, in Max: The Curse of Brotherhood.
The 2.5D puzzle/platformer from Cophenhagen-based developer Press Play (Max and the Magic Marker) charmed demoers at Gamescom and TGS, but it wasn’t expected to arrive on the Xbox 360 or the Xbox One until sometime in 2014. In a press release this morning, Microsoft Studios made the surprise Xbox One launch announcement (without mentioning the 360 version). Here’s a rundown on the story from Press Play:
When Max wishes for his annoying little brother, Felix, to be whisked away by unknown evil forces, he gets more than he has bargained for. Armed only with a marker and a hope of undoing what he has just done, he sets out on a perilous journey across deserts, eerie lantern-lit bogs, ancient temples and lush green forests to get his younger sibling back. Along the way Max gains and develops the power to manipulate the environment and overcome seemingly impossible obstacles.
Max: The Curse of Brotherhood will be available for download on the Xbox One Store for $15. Get a look at what it will deliver in the trailer below:
