Although the press release below (from last week) is regarding the Winter release on the Wii, I just received confirmation that the XBLA version will be releasing this Wednesday, September 3. For some reason it’s hard to obtain release dates for downloadable titles, but this one has been in development for an extremely long time and has received a lot of publicity ever since it was first announced. May history be determined once and for all this Wednesday.
