WWE WrestleFest announced for XBLA

Yesterday, we heard a rumor that a remake of WWE WrestleFest is coming to XBLA after its iOS release and it looks like we’ll be going in the ring next. The game will include a list of famous wrestlers from recent stars like The Marine‘s John Cena to legends like “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Jake “the Snake” Roberts. The iOS version will include multiplayer, meaning the XBLA version could possibly bring it over for offline/online. There’ll also be DLC for the iOS version, possibly inferring we’ll be getting DLC on the XBLA version but since being announced for development, we don’t know much beyond a release date for 2012. In the meantime, there is a Marketplace listing, with confirmed 2-player online and some screenshots from we assume the iOS version unless the XBLA version has those giant buttons on the screen. Keep your belt on in the ring when this comes out sometime this year.

Rumor: Minecraft building up for a late March release?

Hookshot Inc recently got the skinny on the upcoming Xbox Live Arcade version of Minecraft, revealing new details on the blocky smash hit and a potential release date. The feature details the game’s development process, a collaboration between Notch (Minecraft‘s creator), Mojang, 4J Studios (the developer of the Xbox 360 version) and Microsoft. The feature infers that we’ll be seeing several announcements about the game before the end of the month including details around the game’s multiplayer, update process, and integration with social networking sites such as Facebook. Perhaps most exciting of all, the feature states that Xbox 360 owners will be building their own worlds seemingly sooner rather than later. The word on the street is that Minecraft will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade by the end of March. While the release date should be taken with a grain of salt until we get confirmation, any Minecraft related news at all makes for a good start to the week.


Rumor: WWE WrestleFest heading to XBLA

The squared circle may be heading to Xbox Live Arcade thanks to THQ in the form of WWE WrestleFest, a remake of the early 90’s arcade game which will be coming to iOS soon. THQ’s Community Manager, Marcus Stephenson, hints that WrestleFest may be arriving on more than just iOS devices. Mr. Stephenson replied to a Twitter comment implying that sales would be good for the title if it was brought to XBLA. Mr. Stephenson replied, “You should wait for Feb 21 before you believe anything. Just saying, bro! :)” WWE Wrestlefest will arrive on iOS devices next week. We will need to wait and see if February 21 brings about an official announcement from THQ regarding a XBLA release.

Dungeon Defenders DLC and update submitted to Microsoft

The latest title update and DLC for Dungeon Defenders has been submitted to Microsoft and Sony for their approval, according to Trendy Entertainment’s Development Director and Chief Technology Officer Jeremy Stiegliz. He added that it “won’t be much more of a wait now,” but confirmed that console gamers will have to hang in there a little bit until after the PC version is released.

Stiegliz made the announcement on the game’s official forums, and fans quickly asked for clarification on the release window. While none was forthcoming, the wait for precise information shouldn’t be long. “I believe Jeremy [Stiegliz] meant the date will be announced in a matter of days,” stated a community manager.

The DLC is titled Quest for the Lost Eternia Shards Part 2, with the first portion having been released back in December. Gamers will visit Morrogo Desert Town in the followup. Stiegliz describes it as “a pretty rockin’ new chapter.”

Retro City Rampage causing chaos this May

A game we’ve been reporting on for a good year without a solid release date, Retro City Rampage is finally settling its rampage down. Creator Brian Provinciano told Joystiq that it’ll be releasing on digital shelves this May at an undisclosed price. However, the PC version is currently for pre-order at $14.99, suggesting the game will most likely be 1200 MSP. After working on this game for so long, Brian had this to say about what’s next for Vblank Entertainment:

I’ve got many ideas and definitely want to do more open-world games, but right after RCR I will take a breather and work on something small and different. Hopefully something that takes maybe 8 weeks instead of 8 years.”

This game still looks like the open-world love letter to retro gaming and nostalgic destruction, we can’t wait until May when it’s released.


New Awesomenauts screens show off multiplayer insanity

Fans eagerly awaiting the upcoming XBLA release of Awesomenauts got a little something to hold them over in the form of a whole mess of screenshots last week. Developer Romino Games posted a whole slew of screens to the game’s Facebook page Monday. You can see all of the screens in the Facebook photo album.

Awesomenauts is a 3-versus-3 MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) title from Romino Games and DTP Entertainment. The game will hit for the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. The game features tug-of-war or capture-the-flag style gameplay in which each team of three attempts to push their way into the enemy team’s territory to destroy an objective with the help of smaller, computer-controlled units. Originally scheduled for late 2011, the game is currently slated to hit in early 2012; no exact release date has been announced, nor has pricing.


Double trouble for Skullgirls with final character reveal

Skullgirls fans are in for a double treat with what is believed to be the eighth and final character reveal for the upcoming fighting game. According to her bio, Double is capable of transforming it’s nightmarish form into that of any person, but often appears as a smiling nun. It can frequently be found in the Grand Cathedral of the Divine Trinity, listening to confessions and attending to the catacombs beneath. The Gametrailers website has provided some information on her (it’s?) fighting style too:

• Double moves around the field as a quivering eldritch horror, and transforms into other characters for most attacks
• While Double may use frames of animation from other characters, many of the attacks are “remixes” of the moves she’s copying
• Even though she transforms into other characters for them, some of the moves are exclusive to Double: several moves that didn’t make the cut on the original character made it into Double.

Skullgirls is being developed by Reverge Labs and should be launching on XBLA early 2012.

XBLIG gets a new home in the Dashboard

Microsoft has finally made a move to rectify one of the most longstanding and common complaints about the 360’s dashboard: Xbox Live Indie Games had extremely low visibility. Effective immediately, gamers will no longer be required to manipulate their way through the deepest bowels of the dash in order to peruse the list of available indie titles. A tile labeled “Indie” is now prominently located right underneath the Arcade square on the Games Marketplace.

Independent Xbox 360 developers are also about to get some more love in the form of an XBLIG companion app for Windows Phone 7. The app — currently being beta tested by a few select individuals — is said to be about 90 percent of the way to completion and will provide gamers with a simple way to keep up-to-date on the 360 indie scene. It works by yanking data from RSS feeds of blogs covering the XBLIG scene as well as the XML and CSV data from all the titles. In addition, the developers themselves will vote upon titles that they feel deserve to spotlighted on the service.
