Two more Xbox Originals on the way

Spyro and Guilty Gear here on Monday.

Microsoft is popping The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning and Guilty Gear X2 #Reload on the Xbox Originals list on Monday. Each game will be priced at 1200 Microsoft Points (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40).

Guilty Gear X2 #Reload is the stylised 2D fighter famed for its anime looks, over-the-top moves and heavy metal personality. This was the first time it appeared on Xbox, and it boasted futuristic head-to-head battles on strange online service called Live.

Metacritic scores it fairly well, but sadly it must have escaped our attention back in 2002.

The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning, on the other hand, flapped its little purple wings in an effort to reinvent a rather tired but cherished series. Failed a bit, mind you, but did so with visual flair and a lovely combo system.

Sierra is busy rethinking Spyro again for the latest consoles as we speak, and the results are already looking very swish indeed.

Pop over to our roundup of the Sierra spring break to see what we thought of it.
