Neon White is expected to arrive on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S (as well as Xbox Game Pass) soon following the ESRB rating which listed it for release on Xbox platforms. At the moment, the game is currently available to purchase digitally on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.
The official description for Neon White reads:
“Neon White is a lightning fast first-person action game about exterminating demons in Heaven. You are White, an assassin handpicked from Hell to compete with other demon slayers for a chance to live permanently in Heaven. The other assassins seem familiar, though… did you know them in a past life?”
