Keep your fingers firmly crossed and hope that this latest release date for Double Fine's 'manly' Iron Brigade sticks. The action strategy title has been in limbo concerning its release in PAL territories for a while now, following a legal entanglement over the Trenched name, which was deemed too similar to the board game Trench.
Trenched will now be renamed Iron Brigade everywhere, and the European XBLA launch will bring with it some bonus content as a sweetener to make up for the long wait. Trenched had released in North America back in June, but the ensuing trademark dispute and Microsoft's long certification process has seen the game put on hold in Europe, until now.
"European players had to wait so long for this game, we wanted to make it up to them with awesome new features," said Project Lead, Brad Muir. "We added a brand new, incredibly challenging infinite Survival Mode with ten new pieces of high-powered loot, along with a new leaderboard to track players on this Survival Mission."
Iron Brigade will be coming to the Xbox Live Arcade in Europe on November 30th for 1200 Microsoft Points. Better late than never, eh?
