News: Overhead shooting with a side of brainnnnnnssssssss.
Microsoft is adding a trio of new games to the Xbox Live Arcade this week including Konami's overheard zombie-infested shooter Zombie Apocalypse. A second overhead shooter (with much less brain-eating content), Ion Assault, will also be added to the XBLA tomorrow. Finally, a side-scrolling beat 'em up based on the movie The Warriors, The Warriors: Street Brawl, will complete the trifecta.
All three games are priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10) each. More information on all of the titles can be found below, courtesy of Microsoft.
As the zombie infection spreads uncontrollably and the undead outnumber humans, a small band of heavily equipped gunslingers set out to destroy as many zombies as they can and try to save any of the remaining survivors in Zombie Apocalypse.
Up to four players can try and stop the zombie apocalypse with an arsenal of deadly weapons, such as an assault rifle, flame thrower, or grenade launcher, and when ammo is low a chainsaw will be your last line of defense against becoming one of the undead. This action packed, arcade-style shooter will test your dual analog stick shooting skills and ability to survive 55 days of relentless zombie attacks.
