We’ve spent the past week searching the internet and hounding our industry contacts in an effort to compile the ultimate 2011 XBLA Game Release List. We anticipated on heck of a year for Xbox Live Arcade. So epic we couldn’t even fit everything on one page. So without further ado, check out the list:
Interesting fact: According to Behemoth’s leaderboards, 2 million players have enjoyed Castle Crashers. This doesn’t solidify it, but definitely helps show that Castle Crashers is one of the best, if not the best XBLA game out there. Will this audience carry over to Battleblock Theatre? Let’s hope (if Battleblock is any good!).
Back in September, Microsoft announced that they had commissioned Japanese developer Spike to create the next title in the Fire Pro Wrestling franchise for the 360 exclusively, notably on XBLA instead of retail, and with avatars instead of stylized 2D character models. What wasn’t announced, was if it would leave Japan. Full story after the break!
Earlier today the DLC achievements were finally added to Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. You can now feel safe to purchase the DLC pack, which sells for 160MS Points ($2), if you were holding out. If you do ever find yourself having issues with DLC achievements in the future, the solution listed in the first UPDATE works every time for correcting conflicting gamerscore.
