XBLA Madballs game arriving tomorrow

Along with Secret of Monkey Island.

Microsoft has confirmed two new titles are scheduled to hit Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow.

First up is Madballs in... Babo: Invasion, a game based on the popular Madballs toys from the eighties. You can play as your own avatar, take on up to 16 players online or enjoy four player co-op. There are five combat modes, ten levels and 21 maps. The game will cost 1200 Microsoft Points, equivalent to GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40.

More retro fun is on the way with The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition. The classic adventure game has been given a 1080p makeover, voiceovers by the original cast, a remastered score and hot-swapping so you can switch between Special Edition and Classic modes at any time. It's yours for 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60).
