XBLA Adding Samurai Shodown 2, Rocketbowl, and Shotest Shogi
A classic fighter, sports, and puzzle game grace the XBLA off-season.
By Steve Watts, 09/08/2008
Samurai Shodown 2 With the "Summer of Arcade" releases come and gone, it's hard to count on blockbuster after blockbuster, but Xbox Live Arcade still might hold a gem or two for the fall. The Gamerscore Blog reports that the releases this week will be Samurai Shodown 2, Rocketbowl, and Shotest Shogi.

Old-school quarter junkies will remember Samurai Shodown 2 for its addictive weapon-based combat in the days when Ryu and Ken ruled the roost. It will be going for 400 MS Points ($5), four bucks cheaper than its Wii Virtual Console incarnation and with online play to boot. Rocketbowl is, true to its name, about rocket-powered bowling balls knocking down pins. It was originally released for PC in 2004. Finally, Shotest Shogi is a popular board game in Japan similar to Chess where players have to capture the king through strategy. Both Rocketbowl and Shotest Shogi will cost 800 MS Points ($10).

Microsoft will also be offering up some new add-on content for existing Live Arcade games this week. Buku Sudoku will see 1200 more puzzles, and N+ will add 150 hard single player levels, 50 multiplayer races and 25 multiplayer survival maps. Both add-on packs will go for 200 MS Points ($2.50).



Boo yeah!!!!!

It wasn't coming up on the AU site this morning, so got a little worried, but is now up.

Should be good. Bring back some memories.
