The X5 Music Group is set to release Symphonic Fantasies Tokyo, a live recording of the performances originally held at Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Main Hall. We have an exclusive from the recording, Encore Final Boss Suite.

Xbox One Console Exclusive Ori And The Blind Forest Delayed Into 2015

As recently as TGS, Microsoft had sommitted Moon Studios’ Ori and the Blind Forest for release this year. Unfortunately, that is not to be.

In an announcement on the game’s website, Moon Studios informs that the title will not arrive until 2015. “While we’re extremely excited for all of you to get your hands on Ori and the Blind Forest as soon as possible, we made the decision together with our partners at Microsoft Studios that we’ll need just a little more time in order to add a final layer of polish to – what we hope – will be an unforgettable gaming experience,” the developer writes.

For more on Ori and the Blind Forest, check out our coverage from Gamescom. You can also check out a video interview from E3. Ori and the Blind Forest will also be coming to PC next year.

Our Take
Ori and the Blind Forest is just one of many smaller titles committed for 2014 that likely won't make it in the few remaining weeks. We'll take a look at the roundup of quietly delayed games as we get closer to the end of the year.

This delay wouldn't be quite as impactful if it didn't mean Microsoft was ending its year of exclusives on the abysmal launch of Halo: The Master Chief Collection. If 2014 was "the year of delays," let's hope 2015 is "the year of launching games that work."

Typical Race the Sun gameplay involves chasing the setting sun as you avoid obstacles and shadows. This new mode gets rid of the setting sun, and imposes all kinds of difficult obstacles on the player like closing gates or tight hallways. You can check out an overview of Labyrinthia below.
