The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit video game on Xbox One

One of the biggest surprises of Xbox’s E3 conference this year was the reveal of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, a kinda sorta spinoff/sequel to Life is Strange that’s now available to download on Xbox One consoles and will be free to play for everyone on June 25th.

Captain Spirit is apparently set within the same universe as the first Life is Strange video game and while its characters are completely new, some decisions made in it will affect events in the upcoming Life is Strange sequel, Life is Strange 2.

Here’s the official description and trailer for Captain Spirit. Grab it from the Microsoft Store here.

Have you ever dreamt of being a superhero? Meet Chris, a creative and imaginative 10 year old boy who escapes reality with fantastical adventures, as his alter ego – the Awesome Captain Spirit!

Key Features:
