Yesterday I reported that Natural Motion and 505 Games had teased a new Backbreaker game. Today they made it official by announcing that the new Backbreaker game will be titled Backbreaker: Vengeance and will be exclulsive to Xbox Live Arcade.
"Backbreaker: Vengeance takes the intensity and AAA appeal of the originalBackbreaker Football console game and combines it with the pick-up-and-play nature of the multi-million selling iPhone games to create a whole new one-of-a-kind sports experience for digital download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360. It takes as its inspiration the wildly popular “Tackle Alley” mini-game in Backbreaker Football to deliver an all-new arcade slant on football."
Sounds to me like they're taking the Tackle Alley feature from the original Backbreaker and repackaging it as an Xbox Live Arcade game. To be honest, that was the most playable thing in Backbreaker so getting even more of that may be worth whatever price tag they stich onto Backbreaker: Vengeance.
