This week on the Xbox LIVE Arcade is… absolutely nothing. One would have thought that this week’s release would have been Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition from Atlus. Perhaps partly due to their February 4th press release they shot out stating it would be released at the end of March and it wasn’t. So naturally, most of us thought it was just delayed a week. Instead we got Mega Man 10 last week. And it appears as though Mega Man 10 will receive some downloadable content add-ons in the form of the Bass character and the Special Stage 1 this week. Well, at least we can all look forward to next week when we’ll see the release of Final Fight: Double Impact for 800 Microsoft Points. Unfortunately, that’s all for this week. Follow us on Twitter @XBLAGameNews for up-to-date information and contests regarding everything XBLA and check out www.xblagamenews.com to find out what games are coming to the Xbox 360 via Xbox LIVE Arcade.
The original 2-D classic Mega Man returns in the all new Mega Man 10! Mega Man 10 continues to bring the series back to its old-school roots, with retro platforming action and classic 8-bit graphics and sound. Rediscover Mega Man with new, classically-inspired boss characters, each with unique weapons and vulnerabilities. The year is 20XX and Robotenza - the Robot Flu - has spread like wildfire, incapacitating robots everywhere. One month after the outbreak, the situation worsens. Infected robots have gone out of control and have destroyed the city! It's up to Mega Man to get to the bottom of this viral mystery.
