  • Six standard weapon pick-ups with three advanced attacks each, featuring both 'classic' (combo) and 'casual' (charge-up) input method
  • Five newly designed, highly interactive arenas, using Bezier patch technology for maximum surface smoothness

"Is this a remake of the N64 game. I fucking loved that game!"

"V8: Arcade is a brand new re-imagining of the original themes and gameplay, engineered from the ground up for today’s hardware by the original founders of Luxoflux and V8 developers."

So, it's not an exact remake of either Vigilante 8 or Vigilante 8: Second Offense. Rather, it's taking some things from both old games, putting in some new stuff, adding LIVE and achievements, and POOF V8:Arcade.

This will be one of the few games I go straight to the full ver. Can't wait!

I think I rented this game one for the PS1 and played the hell out of it. Pretty cool that it's coming to the XBLA. But does anyone else smell the impending $15 price tag?
