Xbox Live Arcade Spring 2008 Lineup - Screens

by Rainier on March 17, 2008 @ 1:18 p.m. PDT

there will be no new Xbox Live Arcade titles this week, instead Microsoft announced that Assault Heroes and Doom have become Xbox Live Arcade Hits, and will be available at a permanently reduced price. Some of the upcoming XBLA titles are Rocky and Bullwinkle, Shotest Shogi, TiQal, Wits & Wagers, and a remake of Capcom's classic Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3.

Here is an early look at a few games coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade in the near future:

“Rocky and Bullwinkle” (Zen Studios Ltd.)

And now, here’s something you’ll really like! Based on the highly popular cartoon series of the same name, “Rocky and Bullwinkle” on Xbox LIVE Arcade is a fast and fun party experience packed with over 100 micro-games and decked out in an authentic retro art style. All your favorite characters are coming straight out of Frostbite Falls and into your living room: Rocky, Bullwinkle, Boris, Natasha, Dudley Do-Right and many more. Plus, players with an Xbox LIVE Vision camera can control 25 of these games using fun gestures. Gee whiz, Rock!

“Shotest Shogi” (AI Factory Ltd. and Rubicon Development Ltd.)

Experience a new kind of shogi, Japan’s top board game, which encourages complex tactical play and strategic sacrifices. Set in an elegant Japanese room, this beautifully rendered game features 16 challenging artificial intelligence opponents as well as an online multiplayer mode*. For beginners, “Shotest Shogi” on Xbox LIVE Arcade also offers an advanced tutorial that guides and tests players as they progress through the game.

“TiQal” (Slapdash Games)

An addictive new puzzler, “TiQal” takes players on an epic journey to save an ancient Mayan village. Players demolish enemy block walls by matching squares of the same color and building them up to unleash massive combo points and mind-blowing power-ups. Partner with a friend over local or LIVE* co-op play to rescue the village, while enjoying sumptuous graphics, pulse-pounding sound effects and an awe-inspiring musical score.

“Wits & Wagers” (Hidden Path Entertainment LLC)

Party and trivia fun! Even if trivia isn’t your thing, the first trivia and party game to hit Xbox LIVE Arcade is one in which players can win by making educated guesses, playing the odds or just knowing the interests of other players, whether they are local or online. Break out the Big Button Pad controllers or play couch vs. couch on Xbox LIVE for a trivia party extravaganza.

“Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3” (Capcom Entertainment Inc.)

Xbox LIVE Arcade’s “Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3” revives one of the most popular arcade shooters with an all-new adventure. Battle solo or recruit two other specialized commandos to conquer the evil tyrant, General Ratiev. Players can play as Codename Wolf, Coyote or Fox to take on waves of soldiers, rescue POWs and blow up armored vehicles through a variety of dangerous battlefields.
