Small Arms to hit XBLA Wednesday


Small Arms – one of the most fun-looking titles for Xbox Live Arcade – launches Wednesday, November 22, 2006. Don’t know much about Small Arms? Allow me to change that.

Picture PowerStone and Super Smash Brothers with off-the-wall characters, and you have an idea of what Small Arms is. Want a better description and an idea of the game after hands-on time? Check out the interview with some of the team: Lost Planet and Small Arms interview.


  • 12 characters, each with their own weapon
  • 8 unique levels
  • 12 Achievements, including the innovative “Six Degrees of Small Arms” viral achievement
  • Up to 4-player multiplayer offline and on Xbox Live
  • Local Multiplayer / Xbox Live Swap – allows players to swap out a local friend with a friend over Live without leaving the game
  • Three single player game modes Story, Challenge, and Shooting Range
  • Colorful 3D graphics with classic side-scrolling run and gun action
  • Expect premium downloadable content for this title in the future – providing new game play elements and unique challenges for Small Arms fans

I don’t know about anyone else, but i’m planning on getting this one as soon as possible. Is anyone else planning on getting Small Arms?
