Contra Releases This Wednesday November 6, 2006

Posted by dpcough in Xbox Live Arcade.

Today at the Xbox 360 Showcase Event in NY Microsoft announced Contra would release this week as apart of this week’s Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays (no crappy UNO pack this week!) Here are the games that will come out before the Holidays:

  • Small Arms (Gastronaut Studios) – an indie-developed original title designed specifically for Xbox Live Arcade, featuring frantic multiplayer brawling combined with action and precision shooting.
  • Novadrome (Buena Vista Games) – originally developed futuristic racing on Xbox Live Arcade.
  • Assault Heroes (Wanako/Vivendi Games) – blast waves of formidable foes in this originally developed top-down shooter, single player or two player co-op action.
  • Heavy Weapon (PopCap Games) – experience this irreverent, original side-scrolling action game that supports up to 4 players simultaneously.
  • Defender (Midway) – space combat classic updated for this generation.

In addition there are over 100 indie developers and all major publishers currently working on Xbox Live Arcade titles. Sweet, isn’t it? Can’t wait for Small Arms. The Xbox 360 is in for a strong holiday. And thanks John from gamerscoreblog for posting this, I couldn’t go to the NY Event but we always have fantastic PR like you!
