We’re probably going to get Ikaruga in two weeks, but until then we will have Mr. Driller Online to pass the time. Microsoft updated the Mr. Driller Online page on Xbox Japan revealing it is scheduled to come out on April 2nd. This makes it next week’s Xbox Live Arcade game. For 800 points you get high resolution colored blocks and online drilling action for up to four people. There is a single player mode too, but the main selling point of Mr. Driller Online is, well going online.
Is this sufficient Ikaruga filter*? (*providing Microsoft gives Mr. Driller Online and Ikaruga worldwide releases)
