The once PlayStation Portable and then PlayStation Network title, GripShift, will be making its way to Xbox Live Arcade before year’s end.
The PlayStation Store saw the first console release of the game earlier this year, and owners were treated to the obvious visual bells and whistles, as well as online multiplayer. According to developer Sidhe Interactive, the XBLA title will be the “definitive” of the game.
“We’ve added a substantial amount of new content,” says Mario Wyn ands, Managing Direction of Sidhe Interactive, “including new single player courses and a multiplayer Deathmatch mode for players bent on dominating their friends or climbing to the top of the leaderboards.”
No pricing has been announced, but when the game hit the PSN earlier this year, it carried a $9.99 price tag. If that’s any indication, 800 MS points sounds about right.
Sidhe Interactive, industry leading developer of cross platform titles, today announced that their award-winning driving platformer title, GripShift®, is headed to Xbox LIVE® Arcade (XBLA), the premier destination for digitally distributed, high-definition original and classic games. Available this year, the Xbox LIVE Arcade-exclusive title features updated graphics, improved controls and additional single and multiplayer content, including new Challenge courses and a Deathmatch mode.
“Veteran players and newcomers to the game will both find something to love in this definitive version of GripShift,” said Mario Wynands, Managing Director of Sidhe Interactive. “We’ve added a substantial amount of new content, including new single player courses and a multiplayer Deathmatch mode for players bent on dominating their friends or climbing to the top of the leaderboards.”
GripShift brings the action online to Xbox LIVE Arcade with an abundance of new content, including upgraded graphics, Deathmatch mode and new race courses. Additionally, unlockable achievements and TrueSkill Leaderboard functionality will keep Xbox 360 owners coming back to race their way to glory!
