OutRun Online Arcade gets XBLA date

Just had a Heart Attack.

Microsoft has confirmed, via Xbox Live's Days of Arcade feature, that SEGA's OutRun Online Arcade will be released on Xbox Live Arcade on Wednesday 15th April.

The game's a downloadable version of the arcade classic OutRun 2 SP, as converted by Sumo Digital, which has done this sort of thing before (on Xbox, PS2 and PSP) to terrific effect.

OutRun Online Arcade is also due for a PS3 release on the PlayStation Network, but SEGA is currently unable to confirm if this version will launch simultaneously with the 360's in April.

Sony's approval processes have seen several PSN games arrive later than their XBLA counterparts, most notoriously with PS3 owners' months-long wait for Capcom's Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. We'll let you know as soon as we do.
