Xbox 360

Activision has announced Viligante 8: Arcade for Xbox Live Arcade, developed by Isopod Labs and planned to be released this spring. The game is a remake of the classic, featuring 8 player online modes and lots of new content. This seems to be Isopod Labs first project, so hopefully they'll do it good! First images inside.

Awwwww yeh.
Someone must have overheard me a few weeks back as I was playing this classic on the n64 and was wishing someone would make another car combat game for the 360 as they're isnt enough of them these days.
Any idea if it is just a remake or if theyre adding anything else like extra maps?

The developers said they were working on this quite some time ago, but it's nice to finally see something of it. Really great game, better than Twisted Metal, IMO.

Yep different devs, but the concept of V8 was based on I76 and authorized by Activision :) -that is the only link i know of though, i don't thing any staff member who worked on I76 worked on the vigilante series-

Looks interesting, but I always wonder, how some publisher/developer (whoever be responsible) can make a choice of a name like that. This name is unspectacular and has not really a value of recognition.

Ps.: Sorry for my english folks, but I hope u all know what I mean ... :)

There were tons of great games on Dreamcast. If you missed them, that's no one's fault but your own.

As for V8, glad to see it back. I love the hell out of the Twisted Metal series, but V8 was always a much better experience - even if it was never quite as famous. Now all the V8 love is back, but in a $10 package.

Only makes you wonder, if you can get V8 for a measly $10, why pay $60 for the new Twisted Metal? Perhaps EatSleepPlay are making the new TM game as a $10 PSN title. I mean honestly, knowing I can get V8 for $10 has really put the damper on my picking up TM for $60. This is great news, indeed.

FreeSwag, that response was expected, look at your avatar...but honestly, daytona USA??? looks like you just did a wiki on dreamcast games, but, i will cede there were other good titles, BUT, they had the same titles on other systems, such as the PS2 which did not die, had a friendly controller, and didn't go flop and bankrupt. harsh as that may sound, and this might shock you, its an opinion, so keep your pants on ;)
