2Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights
The newest game to feature on this list, Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is one of the best Metroidvania games to release in recent years.
In Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights you play as a young priestess, waking up in a world ravaged by blight. She has no way of attacking her enemies herself, but luckily she has a spirit guide who is all too happy to manifest and slash at her foes on her behalf. As you play through the game you gain the assistance of other spirits, too, and can make use of up to three of them at once to combat your foes.
Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights is a dark and haunting game, with a wonderful piano-based soundtrack. It’s challenging, too, with bosses that really put up a fight. Needless to say, if you have an Xbox console and are after the best Metroidvania games to play on it, you should definitely consider picking this up.
