Boom Boom Rocket gets update, new songs


Who knew that there's be this much post-release support for the Xbox Live Arcade Boom Boom Rocket? Electronic Arts has announced today that they will be "celebrating the holidays" with a new update, which includes improve fireworks, Japanese and Korean language support, and compatibility with guitar and dance mat controllers. The leaderboards will also be updated to reflect leaderboards for each controller type, so you can waste time trying to perfect your "craft" on three peripherals.

Additionally, five additional songs are being made available for the game. The tracks are free until December 16, but after that, you're going to have to pony up 250 MS Points if you want to get down with the hits.

  • "Eine Kleine Rochtmusik"
  • "Cannon in D"
  • "Sugar High"
  • "Sting of the Bumble Bee"
  • "Explode to Joy"
If you don't already have it, Boom Boom Rocket will run you 800 MS Points, but I'm holding off until they add support for the Rock Band drum peripheral. "And Justice For All" is just too easy.
