A double dose of Taito remakes are coming to Xbox Live Arcade. Space Invaders Extreme and Arkanoid Live are two of this week’s Xbox Live Arcade games. Each one goes for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).

 

The console version of Space Invaders Extreme has online play for four extreme shooters and backgrounds designed by Tempest 2000 creator, Jeff Minter. Arkanoid Live has 62 rounds, a new boss named Skull, and two player co-op. Both games have unspecified “content downloads.”

 

Zombie Wranglers, which always felt like this generation’s Zombies Ate My Neighbors to me, is this week’s third 800 Microsoft Point ($10) game. Three decent looking games in one week is great for us, but a bad spot for developers. Especially, Taito who is essentially competing against itself for your Microsoft Points.

    God I love Jeff Minter.

    Well, SIE and Arkanoid are day one for me :)

    “Unspecified content downloads” is worrisome. I will be all over Space Invaders Extreme and Arkanoid Live unless those content downloads turn out to be half of the game.
