Even with the Stadia Connect looming next week - obviously primed to drop news-bombs all over the Stadia player community, the platform is still dropping some announcements about upcoming titles. In an announcement on the Stadia Community Blog today, Stadia announced the upcoming arrival of Celeste and El Hijo - A Wild West Tale.

Celeste, which has been wildly popular on every platform it has released for, is a challenging platformer from the creators of perennial multiplayer favorite Towerfall.

  • A narrative-driven, single-player adventure like mom used to make, with a charming cast of characters and a touching story of self-discovery
  • A massive mountain teeming with 700+ screens of hardcore platforming challenges and devious secrets
  • Brutal B-side chapters to unlock, built for only the bravest mountaineers
  • IGF “Excellence in Audio” finalist, with over 2 hours of original music led by dazzling live piano and catchy synth beats

El Hijo - A Wild West Tale may be a little less known, but it looks every bit as interesting as Celeste. Billed as a non-violent stealth game, El Hijo challenges players to guide a six-year-old boy through the perils of the old west, back to his mother.

  • Survive the Wild West with the cleverness of a young hero
  • Explore dark monasteries, deserts, and boomtowns in a spaghetti-western world
  • Merge with the shadows to hide from the lawless
  • Solve playfully tricky environmental puzzles
  • Use a playful arsenal of tactical toys to bypass and distract diverse desperadoes
  • Inspire other children towards the path to freedom
  • Enjoy the gripping storyline of a brave son searching for his mother

No word yet on a release date for these, but we may find out more during the Stadia Connect on July 14. Keep it locked on Gaming Nexus for more details as they develop.
