Sega's popular arcade racing series kicks up mud on Xbox Live Arcade.

by

The Sega Rally franchise returns this week after a lengthy hiatus, drifting onto Xbox Live Arcade. While it may not be as complete as some of the previous entries in the series, Sega Rally Online Arcade offers players a pint-sized serving of what the franchise is all about. Champion Battle mode and Time Attack mode are included in the game, and the vehicle tally sits at 13 different cars to choose from. Online leaderboards are also included for those who like to brag about their track times. A PlayStation 3 version of Sega Rally Online Arcade is also coming out, but due to the PlayStation Network (PSN) outages, it won't be released until the PSN Store is back online.

If you're an old-school Japanese role-playing game fan, then be sure to check out the Virtual Console this week, as Chrono Trigger has just been released on the service. Originally released in 1995, Chrono Trigger is fondly remembered for its captivating story and original soundtrack. Unlike the enhanced release of Chrono Trigger for the Nintendo DS last year, the one that's available on the Virtual Console now is a straight port of the SNES game.

For the full list of games out this week, check out the list below:

Xbox Live Arcade:
Sega Rally Online Arcade - 800 Microsoft Points

Virtual Console:
Chrono Trigger - 900 Nintendo Points

DSiWare:
Calculator - 200 Nintendo Points
