Catan tops new Live Arcade trio
Classic board game will join Alhambra, Carcassonne on Microsoft's download service.
During the first day of the Games Convention in Leipzig, Germany, Microsoft released a wealth of details regarding its upcoming accessories for Xbox 360 and PC, as well as a few morsels about its upcoming lineup of games.
Fittingly for a conference in Germany, the new games announced for Xbox Live Arcade had a European board-game heritage. Outpost Kaloki X is about to have some genre company on Xbox Live Arcade, as all three titles will call on strategic thinking from the players. The announced games include the civilization-building Settlers of Catan, the tile-based city-building game Carcassonne, and the Arabian-themed stock-market game Alhambra set to be available through the Xbox.
