Bomberman Live & Yie Ar Kung Fu XBLA double header

Coming straight from E3 is confirmation of another Xbox Live Arcade double header next week with both Bomberman Live and Yie Ar Kung Fu releasing Wednesday, July 18th. Bomberman Live will feature (literally) tons of bombing excitement and fully customizable bombers for only 800 Microsoft points, while the mysteriously missing from Xbox.com Yie Ar Kung Fu will be available for a more modest 400 Microsoft points. And please fanboys, please pray to God that Hudson didn't muff up our classic Bomberman as we all can agree that Act Zero was a horrible attempt at entertainment.

@4

back in the day? SOmehow I missed this Yie Ar kung Fu game. What the hell is it and what platform was it on? Sounds like a Viking kung fu game. Is SSF2THD even hitting the arcade anytime soon?

If you want more information on Yie Ar Kung Fu, you should go out and check the wikipedia site for it. Konami obviously recently created the site just to help plug this game.

I bet Bomberman is going to kick some major ass!

Hey Konami, why don't you release Sunset Riders for XBLA? That would rule!
