TGS 08: XBLA invasion: Space Invaders Extreme, Arkanoid, Metal Slug 7, more

Straight from Microsoft’s Tokyo Game Show 2008 keynote, a plethora of Xbox LIVE Arcade titles have been announced. And because everything looks sexier when in bullet form, here’s the list of upcoming games:

  • Space Invaders Extreme – port of Taito’s excellent DS/PSP title
  • Arkanoid Live – 120 levels, co-op, versus modes
  • Metal Slug 7 – a new entry in the MS series, yay! (but still a port nonetheless)
  • The King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match – coming in 2009
  • R-Type: Dimensions – 2-player local/online co-op, switch between 2D and newly designed 3D look

The theme here is obviously that of classic titles, which is not a bad thing from where I’m standing. Yes, very little details were given about these XBLA games, but that’s where patience comes in. More info is sure to come as TGS continues.
