Today over at Xbox Wire, we revealed the launch trailer for Super Lucky’s Tale! The video starts by introducing the game’s larger-than-life characters. There’s Lucky, of course, but also Jinx and his mischievous children, collectively known as the Kitty Litter. Early in the game, Jinx steals a mysterious artifact called the Book of Ages, inside of which are entire wondrous worlds and charming creatures who are no match for the Litter. It’s up to you and Lucky, a brave little fox with heroic aspirations, to thwart their wiles and save the day.

Ford Performance and Xbox collaborate on custom F-150 Raptor to appear at SEMA and in Forza Motorsport 7
In celebration of the Nov. 7 launch of the Xbox One X, Ford Performance and Xbox have teamed up to create a specially-modified Xbox One X version of the new F-150 Raptor which will be showcased this week at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. In addition, early next year, this version of the F-150 Raptor will be available for free to Forza Motorsport 7 players within the game.
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition boasts unique graphics, paint, and upholstery inspired by the console’s internal code name, “Project Scorpio,” as well as the Raptor’s desert racing heritage. Custom wheels, bumpers, chase rack and LED lighting in Xbox’s signature green complete the look. Performance-enhancing modifications include a Fabtech six-inch lift kit, upgraded Alcon brakes, Addictive Desert Designs intercooler and Ford Performance Borla exhaust.
The partnership between Ford and Forza goes back over a dozen years to the first Forza Motorsport and the original Xbox. Today, Forza features more Ford vehicles than any other video game, with the Fiesta ST, Focus RS, Mustang GT 350, F-150 Raptor and Ford GT each making their video game debut in the Forza series, the latter two as cover cars.
Forza Motorsport 7 is currently available as an Xbox Play Anywhere title (Xbox One and Windows 10 PC versions included with a single digital purchase at no additional cost) and is releasing on the Xbox One X on November 7 when players will be able to experience it in native 4K and HDR at 60FPS. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition will be available early next year in “Forza Motorsport 7” for Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Read more about today’s news over at Xbox Wire.
