In August, Blazing Lizard revealed that it would be bringing the most pressing question of our time, and perhaps ever, to a head with Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball. While the time of the epic showdown remains an ambiguous early 2008, publisher Gamecock Media Group today revealed the place as Xbox Live Arcade.
Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball is the first project from downloadable-game developer Blazing Lizard, which was formed earlier this year by industry veterans who have worked on acclaimed hits such as Saints Row, Red Faction, and Descent: Freespace. Gamers will have more than just rubber balls to fling about in the four-on-four matches, as each of the five different squads will have their own unique array of physical attacks and power moves. Thus far, Blazing Lizard has confirmed Pirates, Ninjas, and most recently, Zombies as selectable sides.
In addition to single-player exhibition, story, and challenge modes, the game will feature several multiplayer cooperative and competitive modes for four players locally and eight players online. The game has not yet been rated, though Broken Lizard has previously stated the game will have a family-friendly appeal.
