PopCap Arcade Vol. 2 opens on XBLA March 31

Peggle, Feeding Frenzy 2, Heavy Weapon headline second installment in casual game company's compilation later this month.

One noted omission from PopCap's first compilation for Microsoft's Xbox 360 was Peggle, the casual game company's defining ball-shooting puzzle game. That situation, however, will be rectified with PopCap Arcade Vol. 2, which the company has said will be available for the Xbox 360 on March 31.

Two other titles will come packed in to PopCap Arcade Vol. 2 alongside the highly addictive Peggle. Heavy Weapon, which saw positive reviews upon its stand-alone release for the Xbox Live Arcade in January 2007, is an arcade-style scrolling shooter that offers 19 single-player challenges as well as a number of online multiplayer modes. Feeding Frenzy 2, originally released to less-than-spectacular reviews for XBLA in September 2008, drops players into the gills of a fish, challenging them to eat smaller aquatic life while avoiding larger predators.

Peggle fans who can't wait until the end of March can get their fix this week with the launch of Peggle: Dual Shot on the DS. As noted in GameSpot's preview of the game last year, Peggle: Dual Shot is expected to arrive for Xbox Live sometime in March. Further out, PopCap expects to release the heretofore download-only PC title Peggle Nights via retail outlets in April, while a free bonus pack for the game is available today.

halo_wars: you do realize the NXE has an install to HDD feature, and the disc is a much better deal than buying one game off XBLA. But to each their own...

I agree with what krimla said. Peggle is really addictive. I just bought Peggle Dual Shot for my Nintendo DS and it is way fun. I love it although I can't play it for long periods of time or I'll get frustrated lol. I love it though.

I love these discs. I bought the first 2 XBLA arcade discs for like $5 each off Ebay. So worth it. Instead of paying $10 for Pac-Man C.E. over XBL I got that plus like 4 others games for $5...
