Small Arms crashing onto your 360

Small Arms

, the Super Smash Brothers clone with guns, is going to be coming to the Xbox 360 on Wednesday for Xbox Live Arcade peeps. The game will run you 800 Microsoft points for 12 characters with their own weapons, 12 achievements — including the viral achievement only attainable if you play with someone who already has it — and eight maps to play on with three of your Destructoid buddies. Good deal? At least they aren’t screwing you over with microtransactions, like some people. (We’re looking at you Q Entertainment.) See the whole press release after the jump.
