Peggle comes to XBLA this week

Includes online multiplayer.

PopCap has announced that its maddeningly addicitive puzzle game Peggle is to be released on Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday, 11th March, for 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60).

The game features an all-new online multiplayer mode called Peg Party, supporting four players over Xbox Live. There's also local multiplayer, a 2-player Duel mode, achievements, online leaderboards, and support for future downloadable content.

The news comes as a slight surprise, as a Gamespot report last week led us to expect Peggle to appear on XBLA in a PopCap Arcade compilation later a little in the month, on the 31st.

We're not sure of the status of PopCap Arcade Vol. 2 now, but with the promise of a few extra weeks of rainbow-striped, unicorn-starring Breakout-meets-Pachinko-meets-pinball dayglo madness, we don't really care any more.
