Microsoft has announced six more games leaving Xbox and PC Game Pass in October 2023, including fan favorite Trek to Yomi.
Trek to Yomi’s removal revealed on the Xbox Store is joined by The Legend of Tianding, Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion and Eville on Xbox Game Pass, in addition to Shenzhen I/O and Overwhelm on PC Game Pass.
Microsoft didn’t provide an exact date for the games’ removal, but said it would be “in the next two weeks,” with Game Pass departures typically occurring mid-month. It’s worth noting that those who want to play these games after their removal will be able to purchase them outright with a 20% discount as long as they remain available as part of Game Pass.

“Trek to Yomi” is reminiscent of classic samurai films with its striking black and white graphics and cinematic flair. Developer Flying Wild Hog wanted to further evoke this atmosphere through a balance of intense action and dark moments.
In our 7/10 review, IGN said, “Trek to Yomi perfectly nails the samurai aesthetic in a satisfying but understated adventure.”
Of course, many games will also be joining Game Pass in October, although Microsoft has only revealed a few so far. These include Gotham Knights (which, according to IGN, featured “poor combat, a clearly predictable mystery, and grueling progression” in our 5/10 rating) and The Lamplighters League, which received a 7/10 from IGN.
