Vigilante 8: Arcade announced for XBLA


Mark your calenders, folks! Vigilante 8: Arcade is coming to Xbox Live Arcade this Spring from the guys who brought you the original V8. It's a "re-imagining" of the car-wrecking series that features brand new content, including online multiplayer for up to 8 players.

Even though I haven't played Vigilante 8 before, I'm really looking forward to this one, if only because there aren't a whole lot of other fantastic Live Arcade games on the horizon, and I enjoy watching things explode. Are you guys ready to blow sh*t up too?

More info after the break.
