Band of Bugs DLC Inbound, And Avatar Support
Written Wednesday, July 01, 2009 By Dan WebbView author's profile
NinjaBee today announced that as of July 8th, Band of Bugs will include avatar support and players can pick up the new downloadable content pack for 240 Microsodt Points.
The avatar support gives players the option of using their avatar instead of the game's original hero, Maal. Players can then engage in hand-to-hand combat and cast spells with their very own avatar as they play through the game. We briefly saw an avatar fireball from NinjaBee last week and we can only assume that this was taken from the Band of Bugs update.
"The Tales of Kaloki DLC is based on NinjaBee’s first Xbox LIVE Arcade game, Outpost Kaloki X. The DLC is set in space and uses the basic mechanics of Band of Bugs but adds a new tile set, new characters, new story, new skills, new strategy, new attacks and new abilities."
“We’re giving you an entirely new game,” said Steve Taylor, president of NinjaBee. “The Tales of Kaloki DLC is Band of Bugs but with long-range combat using lasers, rocket launchers, OO rays and a ton of other sweet weapons to blow attacking space ships to smithereens. It’s all the wackiness from Outpost Kaloki X and tactics from Band of Bugs rolled into one, and we’re stoked to be releasing it.”
The avatar support, which is free, and the Tales of Kaloki DLC, 240 points, will be available July 8th.
