Madballs, Monkey Island Roll To XBLA This Wednesday

Xbox Live Arcade gets a double dose of nostalgia this week, thanks to the addition of The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition and Madballs in... Babo: Invasion, two games that will be available for download as of Wednesday.

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition updates the classic LucasArts adventure game with the high-definition graphical updates you demand, but also offers the original old-school visuals purists go nuts for. New voiceover work, an updated score and un-messed with hilarity makes the 800 Microsoft Points asking price a steal.

Madballs in... Babo: Invasion is a bit more expensive at 1200 Microsoft Points. But it offers 16-person multiplayer action and four player co-op, with decapitated Avatars and playable Madballs at your disposal. Enjoy Skirmish, Team Skirmish, Capture The Flag, Invasion, and Avatar Attack modes, while savoring rare Madballs licensing opportunities.
