Developed by ACE Team and published by Atlus, Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition is an enhanced version of the first-person brawler that hit PC in 2009, including balance tweaks, new content and a two-player co-op mode for online and split-screen play. ...
Ready the Microsoft Points, Xbox 360 owner, for this week's Xbox Live Arcade update promises to be a big one, with first-person brawler Zeno Clash and top-down shoot 'em up Raystorm HD arriving this Wednesday.
ACE Team's quirky Zeno Clash gets its "Ultimate Edition" after a brief delay. The Xbox Live Arcade release brings with it new attacks, weapons, enemies and a new game mode, hopefully addressing some of the concerns we had with the PC version of the game, released last year. Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition is yours for 1200 Microsoft Points.
Square Enix and Taito's high-definition update of PlayStation shooter Raystorm also checks in Wednesday, also for 1200 Microsoft Points. You can read our hands-on impressions of Raystorm HD from Tokyo Game Show 2009 right here.
The game, originally due in March, is billed as the "Ultimate Edition" as it packs a number of changes and improvements over the PC original, including balance tweaks, new weapons and a two-player co-op mode playable both online and via split-screen.
No word yet as to how much the download will run, but we do have a new trailer: Watch the HD video on Shackvideo.
Players of the new 'Zeno Rush' mode will have to defeat various sections of the game in as short a time as possible, with their scores published for all their Live pals to see. The new 'Timehammer' weapon will also set the clock back slightly as it breaks faces.
Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition might have missed its planned Xbox Live Arcade release date of March 30 but Atlus promises to give a new one "as soon as possible."

Perhaps you noticed that today Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition was supposed to release on Xbox Live Arcade. Perhaps you noticed that it did not. "It's been pushed back a tad," says the developer.
"Sorry about that to everyone," wrote Andres Bordeu on the ACE Team forums. "It should come out early April. Atlus will be releasing more info through one of the next press releases. Just a little more patience, it'll be out really soon. As soon as we have new info we'll post it somewhere here."
The open world fighting game's Ultimate Edition adds new attacks, weapons, enemies and a new game mode. There is no word yet on pricing, but based on the price tag of its PC version, it could be around 1200 Microsoft Points.
