Any pool sharks wondering about the absence of Pool Nation on XBLA despite its inclusion as part of Major Nelson's 'content coming soon to Xbox Live' post a couple of weeks ago should be happy to learn that it'll still be heading to the Arcade, but slightly later than originally anticipated.

Developer Cherry Pop Games has confirmed the new release date via its Twitter account, cue-ing up the pool title for launch on XBLA towards the end of the month. On Halloween to be precise. Featuring online and solo billiards play, you can slow time, rewind and exploit other powers on the baize that would otherwise be unavailable at your local bar.

You'll also find the Endurance mode, in which you have to clear the table of balls in the quickest time possible, accruing the most money you can with a speedy clearance. Pool Nation will be racked up on the Xbox Live Arcade on October 31st for 800 Microsoft Points. Balls.

Looking forward to this one, how I would love a HD remake of Archer McLeans Pool Paradise though.

#5. Only if its "Better with Kinect" and not "Kinect Required", cause it would be nice optionally to do it right, but maybe as an update perhaps.

But yeah, it looks visually good, lol. :3
