Two new XBLA titles announced, one Xbox Original now available.
The week after E3, now is the time to see just how quickly Microsoft intends to start delivering some of the promising Xbox LIVE Arcade titles shown at their press conference, a number of which some higher-ups later claimed would be made available on the Xbox 360 within the next few months. Out of the many games – the long-awaited and the totally unexpected – Major Nelson (Xbox LIVE’s Director of Programming Larry Hryb) revealed that the lucky titles slated for release this Wednesday are Go! Go! Break Steady and 1942: Joint Strike...none of the ones headlining the show.
Priced at 800 Microsoft Points (or $10.00 USD), Go! Go! Break Steady combines the button-mashing of rhythm games with the color-matching of puzzle games like Luxor; the game also features online or off competitive or co-operative multiplayer. Or, for the same price, you could instead nab 1942: Joint Strike, a remake of Capcom’s classic shooter; once again, this game offers online or off multiplayer, though only for co-operative play. (1942: Joint Strike should also be arriving on the PlayStation Network this week for you PS3 owners.)
It was also revealed that Jade Empire is now available as an Xbox Original. The product of fan-favorite developer BioWare, Jade Empire is an action RPG that allows players to explore a mythical land and test the limits of their own power, every decision leading them down either the Way of the Open Palm or Closed Fist. Like all XO titles so far, you can download Jade Empire for 1,200 Microsoft Points. For all the news on the latest XBLA and XO titles for the Xbox 360, be sure to check back at VGGEN often!
