Finally, Subtitle coming to Xbox! For the first time ever, players on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S will have the chance to experience one of indie gaming’s most beloved role-playing games when it launches on Xbox Game Pass tomorrow, March 16.
As many of you know, Subtitle isn’t really new to the gaming world. In fact, last September we celebrated the fifth anniversary of its original PC release with a free concert streamed on YouTube (which you should definitely check out – after you’ve completed the game, of course!). But the wonderful thing about Subtitle is that despite its retro-inspired visuals – which are sure to evoke memories of some of the 16-bit classics of yesteryear – the experience itself is still very fresh and distinct.
In Subtitle, each monster is an individual and each interaction is unique; you can choose to fight, or you can choose to show mercy – and how you play and what you choose will affect the outcome of the story. With a hilarious and heartwarming cast of endearing characters, an incredibly eye-catching soundtrack, and truly exceptional RPG gameplay, it’s no surprise that the game continues to surprise and delight new players to this day.
If you’ve been paying attention, you might have noticed that the aforementioned PC version of Subtitle has been available on the Microsoft Store for some time now. While the Xbox version offers a largely similar experience, there are a few Xbox-specific enhancements designed to make the time more comfortable for those who play on a home console. For this reason, progressing and saving data between the two versions is unfortunately not compatible. But it also means that, like previous versions of the console, the Xbox version has its own little… sanctuary, you might say… of exclusive content to seek out.
We know it’s been a long time coming, but we’re extremely happy to finally be able to bring Subtitle to Xbox gamers around the world. Whether it’s your first discovery of the underworld or your 50th, we hope the experience will be unforgettable!
Subtitle will be available on March 16 with Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S and will be available for purchase from the Microsoft Store for Xbox for $ 14.99 (does not support Xbox Play Anywhere).
