Hello Games has revealed to Eurogamer that Joe Danger: Special Edition is indeed coming to the Xbox Live Arcade as previously rumoured, bringing a host of additional content over the PSN version, including new environments, new characters and new gameplay modes, including a new Challenge Mode called 'The Laboratory'.

"We're really excited about coming to XBLA," said Hello Games' Sean Murray. "For a start my brother is finally going to be able to play Joe Danger. Well, knowing him he'll probably just download the Trial. It's going to be coming out real soon though, like surprisingly soon. We haven't rushed it or anything, it's just that we've been keeping it super secret."

Joe Danger is a game in which you play as a portly little stunt biker, like a cartoon Evel Knievel, and although it was incredibly well-received on the PlayStation Network in 2010, Hello Games has seen room for improvement and expansion in the Special Edition on XBLA.

"Like Joe Danger was well received and everything, but my god there were things we didn't like about it. There were places where it was actually pretty frustrating or confusing to play, and I really think we've ironed that out," Murray stated, adding that there's "a lot of new content" which could take almost 30 hours to complete 100 percent. "I think that would be minimum. It's just huge now," he said.

Joe Danger: Special Edition will be coming to the Xbox Live Arcade this holiday 2011 for an as yet unspecified price.

Make no mistake, it may look cartoonish and kids-friendly but it's in fact quite challenging.

As people said when the article about this being rumoured was posted, the game was playable at Eurogamer Expo in London last month on an Xbox 360. I even spoke to the guys who confirmed it was a 360 release to me, sheesh.

Sweet! This was pretty much the only downloadable PSN title I was interested in. Now I can get it for my 360 instead. Day one purchase.

@8 grow the fuck up there is nothing wrong with the PS3, actually as a piece of hardware it is 'better' than the 360, but the 360 has alot more features and has a prettier dashboard.

Earlier this year I was short on cash so I had to sell either my PS3 or my 360, and I chose to sell my PS3 just because the 360 has more features like inside xbox and cross game chat, but if sony were to pull their fingures out and add some features to the PS3 it would be far 'better' than the 360, but for a free to play console its great.

Expecting alot of thumbs down for this, but the truth is out now.

I owned and played this quite a bit on PS3. This will be a day one purchase on XBLA for me, I LOVE this game. It's like Trials HD meets Excite Bike meets Super Mario and All Awesome! neo
