Interesting. Very interesting. When it was first revealed
via the ESRB that XBLA would be seeing a version of Samurai Shodown II
, it was absolutely good news. This time the ESRB revealed that the original, Samurai Shodown,
will be coming to XBLA as well. Given that XBLA has seen original games and sequels released separately, this likely means that both Samurai Shodown
games will get separate release, but we can certainly hope in vain for some sort of compilation and upgrade, can't we?
Since there was no XBLA release last week, we need some good news when it comes to the Live Arcade, and the ESRB delivers for us, rating
two and a half new XBLA games. The half game is the user-named Puzzle Quest
expansion pack, Revenge of the Plague Lord
. The two full games are Samurai Showdown II,
a Neo-Geo fighting game, and Red Baron Arcade
which is a World War I arcade flying shooter with graphics similar to Battlezone. Now, as is normal with this type of crystal ball gazing, no one knows when these games actually will see final release; with a bit of an exception for Revenge of the Plague Lord
though. Since it's simply DLC it will probably be released as soon as it's ready.
