Double D Dodgeball gets release date

It's coming to XBLA next month.

A new trailer for Double D Dodgeball has revealed the game will be released on Xbox Live Arcade on July 30th.

DDD is based around the classic American sport of hitting people. It will feature a multiplayer mode for up to eight "ballers", four ball types and multiple playing surfaces, plus exhibition, player match, ranked match and tournament modes.

"With Double D Dodgeball, we've been able to capture the spirit of classic playground dodgeball that we all grew up with," said product manager Ken Koyama, who clearly didn't grow up in a country where playground time is spent either on football or hide-and-seek variation I Just Saw a Chelsea Smiler in the Toilets.

"Instead of meeting up on the hot playground," continued Koyama, who also didn't spend half his childhood huddled against a climbing frame trying not to die of exposure, "You can go on Xbox LIVE Arcade and blast your friend with ball from the comfort of your couch."

If blasting your balls at friends on your sofa sounds appealing, Double D Dodgeball can be yours next month for 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60).
