Microsoft bringing Trenched to Europe as 'Iron Brigade'

6:00 PM on 08.16.2011

Trenched is one of my favorite Xbox Live Arcade titles from recent months, but our good friends in Europe have been anxiously awaiting word on when the alternate-history fusion of mech combat and tower defense would hit their shores following a trademark dispute with board game designer Rui Alípio Monteiro. Microsoft has apparently chosen to back away from the conflict and announced today at gamescom that the game will be released as "Iron Brigade" in Europe.

Well, that's half of the puzzle solved. Europeans now know the name of the game that they're going to want to buy at some point. Now it's only a question of when.
