The barrage of old-days arcade games is set to continue on Xbox Live Arcade this January with the start of a run of six Atari titles.

That's according to Microsoft, which says we can expect to see Centipede/Millipede, Battlezone, Asteroids/Asteroids Deluxe, Missile Command, Tempest and Warlords released "throughout the year".

As well as the original versions, each will offer "enhanced" graphics options. Battlezone will also offer Xbox Live multiplayer modes and Xbox Live Vision camera support, while Warlords will offer a four-player mode too.

Naturally they'll all come with the requisite leaderboards support and achievements to unlock too.

Microsoft also adds that, in addition to this Wednesday's release of Contra, the Christmas season will see Live Arcade launches for Small Arms, Novadrome, Assault Heroes, Heavy Weapon and Defender.
