Assassin's Creed, Crackdown & Castlevania Coming To Xbox Live On Mobile Phones

When Xbox Live launches on Windows Mobile 7 later this year, it'll be launching with a surprisingly large and varied games lineup.

Microsoft today revealed the launch roster for the service's mobile phone debut, and aside from the usual stuff you'd expect - like Bejeweled - there are some pleasant surprises, like the adorable-looking puzzle game ilomilo.

In addition to blockbuster series like Assassin's Creed (albeit the Gameloft mobile game) and a top-down Crackdown shooter, Windows Mobile 7 gamers will also have access to Halo Waypoint, a Castlevania game, Earthworm Jim, Flight Control, Guitar Hero, Puzzle Quest 2, Max and the Magic Marker and even the mobile version of De Blob Revolution.
