The achievement checklist was discovered underneath the identify ‘T Tablet_for XC,’ which we imagine is in reference to Xbox Cloud Gaming or xCloud with the “for XC” half in its identify. When wanting on the checklist, we are able to clearly see that it is a Taiko sport as achievements referring to Taiko Mode seem all through. The Taiko no Tatsujin sequence is a well-liked sequence of rhythm video games developed and revealed by Bandai Namco the place gamers simulate enjoying a taiko drum in time with music. The Taiko video games have launched on numerous PlayStation and Nintendo consoles through the years, onto cell platforms, and may be present in arcades, however have by no means made their strategy to the Xbox platform.
Nonetheless, this is not the primary time we have seen an Xbox Cloud Gaming-specific achievement checklist from Bandai Namco. In November, we picked up one other odd achievement checklist for Scarlet Nexus. The ‘Check Use only_SCARLET NEXUS_for xcloud‘ checklist is a totally separate achievement stack from the regular checklist used for console and PC variations of the sport. What’s peculiar right here is that this checklist was picked up lengthy after Scarlet Nexus was added to Xbox Cloud Gaming, so why would Microsoft want to check out an xCloud-specific achievement checklist for a sport that was already Xbox Cloud Gaming-enabled?
In the meanwhile, we will not say definitively what the achievement lists for these two video games imply. We all know Microsoft is testing these two video games out, however we aren’t positive in what capability. It could possibly be that Microsoft is performing some testing relating to achievements and Xbox Cloud Gaming, or it might imply, and once more that is simply hypothesis right here, that full xCloud-native video games with separate achievement stacks could possibly be on the best way. We’ll replace you if we discover out the rest.
What do you make of those unusual achievement lists? Tell us your ideas down within the feedback beneath.
