I am a big Alien Hominid fan, I was playing it before it became a big thing, back when it was only on Newgrounds.com, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw that the Xbox Live Arcade was going to get the indie title.
It is great to see Microsoft taking their Xbox Live Arcade seriously. The indie developer “The Behemoth”, will also have a new game released to the arcade as well, know as Castle Crashers.
The Behemoth’s new 4-player side scrolling action brawler is now called Castle Crashers. The company debuted the game in alpha form running on the GameCube at last year’s Comic-Con. Currently The Behemoth plan to release the game in early 2007 for Xbox Live Arcade. Pricing has not yet been determined, and whether the game will be released on other consoles is also unknown at this time.
Also, for those looking for more Alien Hominid love – that title will also become available for Xbox Live Arcade this Holiday. Two player co-op has yet to be confirmed, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed.
Looks like we can expect some really great stuff coming to the Arcade.
