Written Monday, March 29, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
One for the retro crowd this, as a sequel to Midway arcade favourite Hydro Thunder is on the way exclusively to the Xbox Live Arcade this summer from developer Vector Unit.
Hydro Thunder Hurricane will feature 8 theme park-style courses with all kinds of insane obstacles like monsters and such, and there are also loads of different jet-powered speedboats to gun through the choppy waters in several different game modes. Each boat will have varied handling models as well as unlockable skins to boot.
Multiplayer will also play a big part in the game, offering 8-player online racing as well as local splitscreen for up to 4-players. You'll also be able to team-up with friends for Hydro Thunder Hurricane's 'Rubber Ducky' mode. Whatever that is.
Looks fun. Check out the first screens and trailer.
