Beyond Good & Evil HD Coming To XBLA
Written Thursday, September 30, 2010 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Somewhat overlooked upon its original release in 2003, Beyond Good & Evil has since gone on to be considered a bona fide cult classic, treasured for its offbeat personality, well-written script and superb voice-acting. And your best mate (sorry, 'uncle') in the game is a anthropomorphised pig. What's not to love?
Ubisoft has answered our prayers today, announcing that Beyond Good & Evil will be coming to the Xbox Live Arcade next year with scrubbed up 1080p HD visuals, revamped character models, overhauled textures and a remastered soundtrack. And of course, there'll be achievements.
Developed by Rayman creator Michael Ancel, Beyond Good & Evil starred the sassy Jade, a young freelance photographer whose homeland of Hlllys is attacked by a malevolent alien race known as the DomZ. Jade's photgraphy and reporting skills are put to the test when she's called up to expose a huge conspiracy and help bring the war between the people of Hillys and the DomZ to an end.
No price or specific date has been announced for Beyond Good & Evil HD other than a release window of 2011. Perhaps Ubi will pull its finger out now and sort Beyond Good & Evil 2 for us as well. Pleeeeeease?!
