News: An original shoot 'em up and an arcade classic invade the XBLA.
We already knew that Hudson was bringing Omega Five to the Xbox Live Arcade on January 9, but now we've also learned that Disney Interactive is bringing the classic arcade game Tron to the service as well.
For those that have forgotten just what the Tron arcade game was like (it came out in 1982 after all), we have the following summary:
Featuring the familiar gameplay from the original, players battle as the mighty warrior Tron against the insidious Master Control Program and his ruthless right-hand man, Sark. ?Tron? offers a four-part retro-futuristic test of skills, including racing light cycles, battling Sark's tanks, fighting to enter the MCP cone and dodging grid bugs. ?Tron? offers both the original arcade game and an enhanced version with new graphics, improved sound and two-person multiplayer. It's the perfect re-creation of the original game based on the pioneering computer animated Walt Disney Pictures' 1982 feature film, ?Tron.? Plus, the Xbox Live Arcade version is the first version of ?Tron? with two-person multi-player functionality of co-op and versus.
Tron will be available to download for 400 Microsoft Points while Omega Five will be available for 800 Microsoft Points.
We'll have more on both titles soon.
