Blazing Lizard has announced that Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball is headed to Xbox Live Arcade. Sure, this isn't exactly surprising, but it's nice to get official confirmation. The game is scheduled to arrive in early 2008. In news that actually is a little surprising, Blazing Lizard has revealed a new team in Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball: zombies. You can find more details about the zombie team at IGN. We knew other teams were headed to the game, but we never ever considered zombies. We're happy about their inclusion (zombies improve any game), but we're still holding out for the lawyer team. They're not the most aggressive dodgeball players, but they're great at defense (ouch).
We've uploaded artwork for all the new characters as well as some images of the new graveyard arena into our Pirates Vs. Ninjas gallery. Check 'em out below.
