Microsoft has announced that this Wednesday's regular Xbox Live Arcade update will include a port of Konami's arcade sports classic Track & Field, also announcing forthcoming summer XBLA releases like Puzzle Quest and Space Giraffe. Debuting August 8th for 400 Points ($5), Microsoft says the updated version of Track & Field will feature "the same button mashing game mechanic as the original," but will add Xbox Live multiplayer competitions for up to four players, as well as the standard leaderboard and Achievement additions. The company has also said that August will also see the release of a port of Sega's Ecco the Dolphin, Hexic 2, the sequel to Carbonated's Alexey Pajitnov-designed pack-in puzzler, and Ubisoft's 3D mech battler War World. Throughout the rest of the summer, Microsoft also promises the release of Eidos' Geon: Emotions, the XBLA version of D3's massively popular puzzler Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, Jeff Minter's psychadelic shooter Space Giraffe, a port of Sega's Streets of Rage 2 beat 'em up, and Capcom's Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.
