Microsoft shared a small list of Xbox Live Arcade titles developed in Japan and I couldn’t believe Metal Slug 7 is on there written in plain English. Hmm… I wonder if Microsoft will keep the Cynthia dating scenes. The mission mode will be in there…
Taito is jumping on the Xbox Live Arcade ship with Space Invaders Extreme, a revised version of the sensory stimulating handheld game, and Arkanoid Live! which has 120 stages to play on. Didn’t Taito just release a Nintendo DS Arkanoid remake too?
R-Type Dimensions is merely a remake of R-Type I and II with 3D graphics and online play over Xbox Live. Purists can opt for the original graphics which Irem is leaving in. Other games discussed were King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate Match, Meteos Wars, and Shadow Assault: Tenchu which should have just came out in Japan.
