Marble Blast Ultra is the latest in the classic Marble Blast series. It is an online multiplayer arcade action masterpiece with stay-up-all-night gameplay and a level of visual polish that can only be found on Xbox 360. Suitable for players of any age, the game takes place in a futuristic 'astrolab' arena suspended high in the clouds where players compete against each other by navigating their marbles through moving platforms and dangerous hazards, while collecting rare gems and power-up enhancements, in an effort to complete each course in record time. To add to the fun, players will compete head to head in ultra blast multiplayer mode where racing to collect gems will combine with full on marble bashing action to see who ultimately wins all the marbles. Marble Blast Ultra is scheduled to be available via download on Xbox Live Arcade around the launch of Xbox 360. Pricing information will be forthcoming.
