YouTube user Eufo recently posted a video from his/her Xbox 360 devkit entitled Trucs A Venir (Things to Come). In it we see a glimpse of two pieces of downloadable content for Renegade Ops, one clocking in at 100 MB, the other at 80 KB. No official announcements on the content have been made, so don’t let your heart go a’ racing just yet. The video is dated September 7 of this year, so if it’s genuine and there are still plans to release it we should hear about it soon.
Announced yesterday, Hello Games just released a brand new trailer for their upcoming Joe Danger: Special Edition. In the trailer, you’ll see lots of stunts, crazy tricks and some new environments not seen in the original. You’ll also get to play as different characters with a fuzzy bear and a giant chicken making an appearance. Not to mention it shows off the creative side with the track editor to make your own levels. No release date other than “coming soon” on Hello Games’s website but keep an eye out for this title when it releases.
The Aussie government recently posted a classification for Bang Bang Racing, a top-down racing game previously released on Android tablets. The listing shows the game merely as multi-platform, however the above footage was leaked from YouTube user Eufo, posting from an Xbox 360 devkit. Take it with a grain of salt, the internet likes to play games and falsify videos, but given the link between it and the classification it seems likely. If you’re still needing more evidence, the game’s site, registered to the publisher, lists the game for XBLA, though it’s probably the ugliest official website known to man.
The astute will also notice Saint’s Row Money Shot and Denki’s Quarrel in the user’s game library. Make of it what you will. We know as much as you do.
*EDIT* The video has been removed by the user.
We originally broke the story back in May that Alan Wake would see new light in a downloadable title called Alan Wake: Night Springs (or rather Alan Wake’s Night Springs as our exclusive screenshot above shows). We now have more bits of information about when and where we’ll see more of this rumored title. First, Geoff Keighly tweeted that “Alan Wake returns” and that the game will be shown on the Spike Video Game Awards on December 10 and the December issue of Game Informer will have screenshots. Game Informer will also have the first images of the game on Monday on their website according to their News Editor Jim Reilly. Lastly, Remedy confirmed the details of the reveal at the Spike VGAs on their Facebook page. Keep your flashlight on XBLAFans for more details as news trickles out.
While that may not sound too awesome to you, it’s at least awesome to hear that Awesomenauts has a release date. Ronimo Games announced the date of February 2012 on their official Twitter page today. But on the cusp of that news, Ronimo also released a new developer commentary on a match of the game in action. The 2D multiplayer online battles work excellently so make sure to catch an eye on this one come February.
It was heavily rumored but we had a feeling Joe Danger would make a stop off in XBLA. Hello Games announced that Joe Danger: Special Edition would be the ultimate version of the original with double the gameplay time. This means a whole new career mode, new challenges, gameplay modes and even new characters to play as. You’ll also be able to learn from the developers new tricks to get through the harder levels. If you’re a fan of the original, the XBLA version is looking to be the best and packed with the most action for your points. Check back to XBLAfans for more info and a new trailer tomorrow!
It’s been almost a month to the day since Orcs Must Die! hit XBLA receiving rave reviews all round and fans of the game will be interested to hear that Art Director at Robot Entertainment, David Kubalak, recently posted an insider’s view of the visual development processes used.

Xbox360Achievements have posted achievements for the newest iteration of the Scene It? franchise from Sarbakan Games called Scene It? Movie Night: Mega Movies. Interestingly the achievement list contains just 12 achievements adding up to 200 points suggesting that this one is heading to XBLA. No release date or pricing has been given nor is it clear whether the big button controllers that come with the retail versions will be compatible. However stay tuned to XBLAFans and we will provide more information as soon as we hear.
