With "A Whole New Game's Worth Of Content"
Hello Games has announced that Joe Danger, the formerly PS3-exclusive bike racing stunt sensation, will be careening onto Xbox Live Arcade this holiday season. The special Edition will include "huge additions and improvements" exclusively to the platform, and will apparently feature a "whole new game’s worth of content, including all new challenges, gameplay modes, and some awesome playable characters to unlock."
It's fantastic news for Xbox 360 owners who've never experienced the riotous Joe Danger experience.
After Microsoft approached Hello Games with the opportunity to publish on the Xbox 360, the small British studio seized the opportunity despite previously slamming the XBLA service as a "meat grinder." There's a lot to look forward to in the new special edition, and I'll let Hello Games founder Sean Murray do the talking.
We’re stupidly excited to be coming to XBLA, it’s frankly the most exciting day in Hello Games history so far. It's such an amazing opportunity for us to finally be able to reach all those millions of beautiful XBLA gamers. My brother has a 360, and he says he'll buy it for sure. Well, he promised he'll download the Trial at least.
This is a game we care so much about, we couldn't wait to go back and refine this idea we’ve now watched hundreds of thousands of people play through. We've basically added a whole new game’s worth of content too, including all new challenges, gameplay modes, and some awesome playable characters to unlock. The main addition is the Laboratory though. It's sort of a masterclass, a set of developer challenges that will test 360 gamers to their limit.
Hello Games have apparently got two more unannounced projects in the pipe along with Joe Danger 2, so we'll keep you in the loop.
