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.

Blazing Lizard, the company recently formed by former members of Volition (Saints Row), has announced what will no doubt be one of the most earth-shattering games yet created on this planet, Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball. Yes, the game seeks to answer the centuries old questions of which group is superior. What better way to do that than with a good old fashioned game of dodgeball, right? Actually, it's not strictly old fashioned, as teams are not restricted to one side of the court, being allowed instead to run anywhere they see fit. PvN Dodgeball is set to be the first in the Pirates Vs. Ninja series -- we can only guess what other sports Blazing Lizard has in mind -- and will be available via as yet unannounced download services. We're assuming that Xbox Live Arcade is a safe bet at this point. Oh, and if by some minute chance you prefer neither ninjas nor pirates, there are three other teams from which to choose, though Blazing Lizard has yet to announce what those teams are (lawyers maybe?). Pirates Vs. Ninjas Dodgeball is scheduled to arrive during the first quarter of 2008.
