Geometry Wars 2 next Wednesday!

Bizarre moves it forward a week.

Bizarre Creations has moved the release of Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 to next Wednesday. National holiday.

This Xbox Live Arcade sequel will cost 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60) and had previously been expected in August.

Retro Evolved 2, unveiled during the Microsoft E3 conference last week, will feature multiple game modes, local head-to-head or co-operative action, and even a co-pilot mode where one person shoots while the other person steers, which sounds rather rude.

There are plenty of new special moves, swarms of colourful shape-shaped baddies, and 1080p even-fancier visuals.

Geometry Wars 2 also has the usual Achievements and leaderboards to prove your thumb-stick abilities to the internet.
