Ubisoft’s action-platformer Outland is nearing it’s release on XBLA. The news comes from a tweet from developer Housemarque claiming that the XBLA version of the game would be releasing around the same time that the PSN version goes live which is “Late April to Early May” according to the PlayStation blog.

Outland is a very unique and artistic game that features a Castlevania: SOTN style of platforming and exploration. It’s combat system features an Ikaruga-like polarity element that allows users to switch from light and dark energy attacks. This is a very interesting combination that looks to have some serious potential to stand out. Here is the official announcement trailer:
