Posted on Wednesday, Jul 12 2006 @ 21:44 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft will release a new Xbox Live Arcade game every week until August 9th.
Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, one of the most highly anticipated titles on the Live Arcade schedule, has been given a concrete release date of August 2nd.

Meanwhile, arcade legends Pac-Man and Galaga join the line up, with Konami's Frogger, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary year, available from today.

Joining those titles will be newcomer Cloning Clyde, which has attracted press attention with its simple concept and interesting gameplay ideas.

Each of the unreleased titles will go live at 8AM GMT on one of the next four Wednesdays, and the first, Frogger, costs 400 Microsoft points (GBP 3.40). Xbox Live Arcade titles usually cost between 400 and 800 points, which users buy in bulk via micropayment.
