First things first: we have a release date for Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting!!! Alright, now that’s off my chest, Gamasutra has received confirmation from Microsoft that they will be having a bunch of Xbox Live Arcade Wednesdays in the upcoming weeks, releasing one new piece of content every week.
As Ami Blaire, Global Marketing Director for Xbox Live, puts it:
“There’s no better way to revisit the 80s than to throw a retro-themed Gold Experience party - complete with the right classic arcade games, music, and pizza. So this summer, live it up on your Xbox 360 and enjoy our new twists on the old classic faves.”
Every Wednesday for the next 5 weeks a new Arcade game will be released at 8am GMT, which would be midnight Pacific Time. The schedule is as follows:
- July 12 β Frogger
- July 19 β Cloning Clyde
- July 26 β Galaga
- August 2 β Street Fighter II Hyper Fighting
- August 9 β Pac-Man
Yep, finally a solid date for all those delayed titles people! Many many thanks to McGrude for reporting this.
