FeelPlus scored moderate critical success on the PlayStation 3 last month with the release of its side-scrolling beat-'em-up Moon Diver. Soon, Xbox 360 gamers will also have a chance to check the game out, as Square Enix announced today that it would be bringing the downloadable title to Xbox Live on May 4 for 1,200 Microsoft points ($15).

Created by Koichi Yotsui (Strider), Moon Diver is set in the 22nd century, after a technological uprising sees all manner of inanimate objects rebelling against their makers. Amid this turmoil, an elite group of ninjas--known as Moondivers--rises up to reclaim the world for humanity.

Moon Diver features many of the classic tropes of the side-scrolling beat-'em-up genre, including massive bosses and waves of enemies. However, it also includes modernized graphics, a leveling system, and four-player local or online co-op.
