Torchlight, Beyond Good & Evil HD out on XBLA next month

As part of their CES announcements today, Microsoft revealed details for the second annual Xbox Live Arcade House Party and the news is big. Not only does it set a range in which we can expect the release of Beyond Good and Evil HD, but there's a surprise twist revealing the impending release of Torchlight for XBLA. Mind blown.

The House Party kicks off on February 18th with Hard Corp Uprising (prequel to the classic scrolling shooter Contra: Hard Corp). The remaining games will release once a week for five weeks total and will also include PopCap's Bejeweled Blitz Live and Full House Poker from now-defunct Australian developer Krome Studios.

That is a very solid lineup of games, if you were to ask me. I know that I'm picking up BG&E because I'd like to feel I've bought a copy of it "new" and there's no way I can resist a Contra game. And it's all only a month away? Gah! I need to buy more points!
