News: Microsoft lets us know what's on deck.



Eschewing the secrecy the Live Arcade is normally known for (one of the things that made us ask WTF is up with the XBLA a few weeks ago), Microsoft has revealed the next ten games that will be added to the Xbox Live Arcade.

MS was rather vague on release dates, but they did admit there would be no new game tomorrow. They also confirmed that "a game may not be launched every week," so expect more of these gaps in the future.

But the next few months should be very interesting for Xbox 360 owners and here's what will be appearing on the XBLA:

3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures from developer Wanako Games and publisher Sierra Online, allows gamers to putt their way through 36 fun-filled holes of manic minigolf action on wild courses that range from the Old West to outer space and feature a bevy of crazy hazards and obstacles.

Alien Hominid HD from The Behemoth features side-scrolling, hysterical cartoon action with a quirky twist and exclusive Xbox Live Arcade features.

Band of Bugs from NinjaBee is a fast-paced tactical strategy game that offers gameplay deep enough to satisfy tactical genre fans and friendly enough to appeal to casual gamers. Creative gamers can even design their own levels with the built-in level editor, then play them solo or over Xbox Live with friends.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night from Konami is a faithful version of this legendary classic updated for Xbox Live Arcade and featuring the game's full soundtrack and memorable side-scrolling vampire-hunting action.

Catan from developer Big Huge Games Inc. and publisher Microsoft Game Studios, is a faithful remake of the immensely popular strategy board game.

Eets: Chowdown from Klei Entertainment Inc. is a completely revamped version of the popular PC title of the same name. It offers new items, 120 new levels and the exclusive debut of Marsho Madness, a high-adrenaline action game in which players must keep the impending evil marshmallows at bay.

Luxor 2 from developer MumboJumbo, sets a new standard for action puzzlers as players match and shoot their way through the land of ancient Egypt.

Paperboy from developer Digital Eclipse and publisher Midway, is a classic coin-op hit, specially enhanced for Xbox Live Arcade.

Root Beer Tapper, also from developer Digital Eclipse and publisher Midway, features fast-paced reflex action as players scramble to keep thirsty patrons happy without dropping root beer mugs in the scramble to earn the biggest tips.

Worms from developer Team 17 Software features armies of adorable weapon-toting worms locked in tactical combat.
