The Xbox Live Arcade port of Samurai Shodown 2 didn’t fall into a black hole only to be remembered on SNK Japan’s home page. It’s coming out this week on Wednesday as one of three Xbox Live Arcade games. For 400 Microsoft Points ($5) you can experience “Victoly” with a bland frame and according to the official Samurai Shodown 2 page, online matches and leaderboards.


Shotest Shogi, the first Xbox Live Arcade game to debut in Japan, will go international for 800 Microsoft Points ($10). AI Factory’s game is basically a 3D version of Shogi with online play and add-on packs to teach people advanced moves. D3 Publisher brings Rocketbowl to the table and it’s bowling with curvy courses. Rocketbowl is sort of like a digital mini-golf equivalent of bowling for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
