Xbox Live Arcade Update – Skullgirls, The Splatters, World Gone Sour



There's an interesting variety of downloads available this week on the Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace this week. From the 2D fighter Skullgirls, to splattery action-puzzler, The Splatters, to a game based on the Sour Patch Kids. They range in price from only 400 Microsoft Points all the way up to 1200, so you have no excuses for not checking at least one of the games out.

Check out all the content below. And remember, Fez is coming this Friday too.

Skullgirls (1200 Microsoft Points)
Skullgirls is a fast-paced 2-D fighting game that puts you in control of fierce warriors in a Dark Deco world. All-new game systems test the skills of veteran fighting game fans while also making the genre enjoyable and accessible to newcomers. A modern take on classic arcade fighters with a hand-drawn high-definition twist, Skullgirls is a one-of-a-kind, action-packed competition complete with awesome combos and an intriguing backstory.

The Splatters (800 Microsoft Points)
The Splatters are acrobatic masters with a unique death wish – to blow themselves up with style! In this award winning action-puzzler, you will unlock and master a variety of stunts and perform spectacular moves to clear out each stage in the most show-stopping way possible. With its fast-paced, splattery liquid physics engine you’ll never play the same way twice. And using Splatter TV, an in-game feature for sharing game clips, you’ll pick up a ton of new moves as you watch the world’s top players perform their jaw-dropping combos. It’s a messy, vibrant show of skill and splattery destruction. Life’s short. DIE WITH STYLE.

World Gone Sour (400 Microsoft Points)
Based on the popular Sour Then Sweet candy Sour Patch Kids, World Gone Sour takes players on a journey from the perspective of a lost piece of candy finding its way to its ultimate destination – the human stomach. Gamers take on the role of a miniature Sour Patch Kid in a stylized human-sized world, guiding the hero through unique locations such as the sticky floors of a movie theatre and a concession stand counter. Joining forces with fellow lost Sour Patch Kids, players use a combination of jumps, twists and puzzle-solving to overcome larger than life obstacles.
