Though no games are in line for this week's regular Xbox Live Arcade update as Microsoft launches its fall dashboard update, the company has released its lineup for the weeks following, including Dreamcast/PS2 update Rez HD, Metanet's N+, and Gameloft's mobile brain training port Brain Challenge. As part of the fall update, Microsoft will be launching its previously reported Xbox Live greatest hits initiative, 'Arcade Hits,' permanently dropping prices on Bankshot Billiards 2, Lumines LIVE, Marble Blast Ultra, Small Arms, and Zuma Deluxe. In the coming weeks, Microsoft says a number of high profile titles will be coming to the service. These include Sierra Online's single player and co-op hack and slash RPG Arkadian Warriors, and Gameloft's Brain Challenge, a brain trailing type title ported from its mobile phone lineup. Sidhe will also be bringing its puzzle racer GripShift to the service after appearances on the PlayStation 3 and PSP, and indie developers Metanet in conjunction with Slick Entertainment will be bringing its puzzle platformer N+, complete with level editor and new multiplayer functionality. Finally, the service will also see the addition of party/card game Poker Smash from Void Star Creations, original 3D shooter Omega Five from Hudson, an updated port of Codemaster's classic Sensible World of Soccer, and Rez HD, the cult hit music/shooter title from Lumines and Meteos developer Q Entertainment. Gamasutra will have more on each title as Microsoft prepares each one for release.
