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.
