Square Enix shows Xbox Live Arcade support

Two new titles a departure for the RPG giant.

 

Square Enix is expanding its Xbox Live Arcade lineup beyond just Crystal Defenders and Yosumin Live. Today, as part of a series of announcements at Microsoft's Xbox 360 Title Preview: Spring 2009 event, the company announced 0 day Attack on Earth and Project Cube for the service. Both are due for release some time this year

0 day Attack on Earth is overhead free-roaming shooter which allows players to blast away in 360 degrees. The game takes place in real cities like New York, Tokyo, and Paris and features online co-op and competitive play for players throughout the world.

The developer for 0 day Attack on Earth is Gulti, a studio which previously made Space Invaders Extreme on PSP, Raident Fighters Aces on Xbox 360, and Mamoru-kun for arcades (an Xbox 360 port of this latter title is also on the way).

Project Cube is an action game which puts players in control of Leo, a robot whose goal is to both restore his memory and restart a heroine robot. In addition to three types of attacks, players can make use of a guard move which turns enemy bullets into a weapon. As with Attack on Earth, this title includes worldwide online play, with a variety of play options, including death match, team battle, and score attack.
