Publisher set to go downloadable with next month's releases of Underpants Slam! and Screwjumper; Elements of Destruction and Rocket Riot to follow.
Although franchises associated with THQ, such as Tetris and Worms, have shown up as Xbox Live Arcade games, the publisher wasn't actually involved in those projects. However, the company behind Saints Row and recent WWE games is finally ready to jump into the downloadable console-game market. THQ announced today that it will release a pair of Live Arcade games next month.
The publisher's first steps into digital distribution will mirror its strategy to make more retail games based on properties it owns, as opposed to high-profile licenses such as its WWE, Pixar, and Nickelodeon franchises. November will see the release of one licensed game, SpongeBob SquarePants: Underpants Slam!, as well as one original, Screwjumper. THQ also announced a pair of original Live Arcade games to follow those: Elements of Destruction and Rocket Riot.
"We view Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 as a natural fit for many of our established casual brands, as well as an opportunity to serve up new gaming content," THQ senior vice president of worldwide marketing Bob Aniello said in a statement.
Why can't they make a Courage the Cowardly Dog Platformer. That cartoon is great...good graphics too
Ohhhhhh... Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Awesome!! Love hope I cam play as patrick or any of the other characters in co-op etc that would be awesome!!!
There needs to be a spongebob 360 released, and I would love a good Spongebob game, but with THQ making it it ain't gonna be good.
soft things to me sponge bob o well ill just rack up some easy game scores. i just hope the game not like over 1100 points or else it's a no no no for sure sure .
Spongebob are you serious??? Dont think there are many 5 yr olds on this site. next thing you know gspot will be reporting on how many episodes of Teletubbies are left in the season
Spongebob games have been worthy of playing in the last few years. This is a good deal for owners of the console.
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
