Google announced on the Chrome Blog that they are adding more console quality games to the Chrome Web Store that take advantage of the Native Client. The Native Client, according to Google, will allow developers to “build web applications that seamlessly execute native compiled code inside the browser”. In other words, gaming experiences on par with native applications and quickly approaching the quality of console titles.

While Square Enix planned to drop the first Chrome Web Store title to take advantage of Native Client with a port of 2009’s Mini Ninjas, but it looks like award winning RPG Bastion beat them to it. However, that is not the only console quality game available in the Chrome Web Store as of today. You can also check out Sleepy JackCordy, Pirates of New Horizons, Star Legends, Running Fred, and Pocket Legends.

Other games also received updates for the approaching holidays, including a new HTML5 version of BejeweledAngry Birds with updated Christmas themes, and Cargo Bridge received a Christmas level edition.
