Heavy Weapon next XBLA release

PopCap Games' side-scrolling tank shoot-'em-up confirmed to be trundling onto Microsoft's downloadable game service next Wednesday.


Earlier this week, rumors spread that the Xbox Live Arcade Wednesday release for January 17 would be PopCap Games' Heavy Weapon: Atomic Tank. While Microsoft usually announces its Live Arcade Wednesday release dates the same week the games go live, the publisher today confirmed that Heavy Weapon is indeed the January 17 new release.

Heavy Weapon was originally announced for the Xbox 360 back in early May and had been scheduled for release last year. The game is rated T for Teen and will sell for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
