MS talks up future XBLA titles

Seven for "the coming weeks".

Microsoft has confirmed that Mutant Storm Empire will be released on Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow, priced 800 Microsoft points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.30), and has also highlighted some of the other XBLA titles due out in "the coming weeks".

First up on the alphabetical list is N+, from Slick Entertainment and Metanet, in which players control a tiny acrobatic ninja through tons of levels of puzzly platforming.

It will soon be joined by THQ's recently unveiled Screwjumper and SpongeBob SquarePants: Underpants Slam. The latter is in a very small minority of kids-focused XBLA titles, but the addition of Activision's Shrek-N-Roll puzzle game to the line-up potentially gives it a naptime companion.

Elsewhere, Sierra Online's Switchball, a physics puzzler about directing a ball along a course suspended in midair, brushes up against Chair Entertainment's Unreal Engine 3-powered Undertow, while InterServ's Word Puzzle - yes, pen and paper word-search brought to digital life - rounds out the list of seven games set to join XBLA soon.

Look out for our Mutant Storm Empire review very soon.
