XBLA Today: Serious Sam Double D XXL, Capcom Arcade Cabinet: 1987 Pack


Two new games have made the Xbox Live Arcade a more retro-tastic place today.

Let the heavy ordinance fly in this side-scrolling shooter featuring all the over-the-top action of the Serious Sam series. Stack guns one on top of the other, up to 6 GUNS HIGH, and take down unrelenting waves of beasts. Bring a friend for two-player action, and upgrade your guns to fire deadly acid rockets, cybernetic bees, chainsaw yo-yos, even pats of butter and much more!

Also available this week is the first installment in the Capcom Arcade Cabinet. The “1987 Pack” includes 1943: Battle of Midway, Black Dragon, and Avengers. It can be had for a handful of quarters or 400 Microsoft Points or $5:

Double dose of Serious Sam coming to Xbox Live Arcade this fall

Serious Sam will make the Xbox Live Arcade a very serious place this Fall with two new releases.

First up is Croteam’s Serious Sam 3: BFE, which will feature the fast-paced brutal action the first person shooter series is known for and take advantage of XBLA’s online capabilities.

A revamped Serious Sam Double D XXL, a 2D sidescroller starring Sam, is also on its way. It’ll feature new missions, weapons, enemies, and a campaign cooperative mode.
