GripShift shifts into Turbo Expansion

Earlier today, Sidhe Interactive released new downloadable content for their XBLA gem GripShift which features one of our all-time favorite pastimes, penguin bowling!

The GripShift Turbo Expansion Pack adds an additional 18 music tracks, 8 deathmatch arenas, 8 race tracks, a new reverse tag multiplayer mode and some new funky fun mini games including the earlier mentioned penguin bowling. Though, the Turbo Expansion Pack will set you back 350 Microsoft points, but how can one put a price on running penguins over in a game of bowling? Right? New GripShift DLC screenshots posted in the gallery below.

Arkadian Warriors and Gripshift release to XBLA

Today, the Xbox Live Arcade's game library has been expanded with the release of two brand new Arcade games. First up is Wanako's Arkadian Warriors which is a dungeon crawler that features a rich character development system, a random dungeon generator and local or Xbox Live co-op play all for 800 Microsoft points. This week's other Arcade gem is the extreme stunt racer Gripshift which features 120 single player challenges, 20 death match arenas and complete Xbox Live versus support all for 800 points. Both games are available for trial or purchase this very moment, so get on getting and download away.

GripShift and Arkadian Warriors releasing this week

After Microsoft deprived us of new Xbox Live Arcade gaming last week they're trying to redeem themselves by offering up two XBLA games this week. They must really feel bad. Releasing to the Arcade on Wednesday, December 12th will be both Sidhe Interactive's GripShift and Wanako Games' Arkadian Warriors each for 800 Microsoft points. We know a select few of our fellow fanboys have been eagerly awaiting GripShift and some even Arkadian Warriors, so this Wednesday those select few shall be super, super happy. Anyone willing to commit to spending 800 points on either title or will a trial be necessary?

December and January XBLA games revealed

In a press release announcing the Fall Update's Xbox Live Arcade Hits program, Microsoft also announced the next few months' upcoming Xbox Live Arcade games that are scheduled for release. As things stand right now, the next XBLA games to get released are Arkadian Warriors, Brain Challenge, GripShift, N+, Omega Five, Poker Smash, Rez HD and Sensible World of Soccer. No specific release schedule for each game has been confirmed just yet, but it's always nice to see what's headed down the old XBLA pipeline. And this list also lets us officially get excited for N+ and Rez HD. A big w00t to that!

GripShift confirmed for December XBLA release


The arcade puzzle racer GripShift has seen its share of releases on various Sony platforms (the PSP in 2005 and on PS3's PSN earlier this year), but now Sidhe Interactive has confirmed that GripShift will headed to the XBLA in December. And, according to Sidhe, GripShift on the XBLA will be considered the "definitive version" featuring updated graphics, 120 levels, achievements, leaderboards and up to four player versus. W00t, w00t! So, be on the lookout for this puzzle racer to release sometime next month and you might as well give the embedded teaser trailer a looksy too.
