Microsoft has a follow-up Xbox Games Showcase event on Thursday

Ninja Theory, Obsidian, Rare to feature in developer chats.

If yesterday's big Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase wasn't enough for you, Microsoft has a little more to come.

Xbox Games Showcase: Extended will be broadcast at 6pm UK time this Thursday, 17th June and feature conversations with some of Microsoft's internal studios.

Psychonauts 2 team Double Fine, The Outer Worlds 2 studio Obsidian, Hellblade 2 maker Ninja Theory and Sea of Thieves outfit Rare will all be included, alongside others.

Kinda Funny Xcast's Parris Lilly revealed the showcase via Twitter last night, and announced he would be hosting.

It's interesting to see Ninja Theory listed here - we didn't get much at all from that studio yesterday. Here's hoping we get an update on Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, or the studio's mysterious ultra-realistic "mental terror" simulator Project: Mara.

Anything else you'd like to see a little more of?
