Xbox Game Pass is having a killer January with Persona and Monster Hunter

All of this hits the week of January 16

We knew it was coming, but it’s something else entirely to see it in flashing neon lights on an official Xbox blogPersona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Goldenand Monster Hunter Rise are all coming to Xbox Game Pass the week of January 16.

As Microsoft has now fully confirmed, none of these are seemingly delayed, and will arrive next week. All three marquee games are coming to the service with all platforms in tow, including cloud play; as well as on consoles and PC. Good luck to all of you who are playing these for the first time! They’re each a massive time sink, but are worth it.
