Trouble Witches Neo Announced for the XBLA

BOOM widget 142049 Yet another Japanese bullet-hell shooter is headed to the XBLA. SNK Playmore has revealed, via its official Facebook page, that it is bringing Trouble Witches Neo to Microsoft's downloadable games platform.

In the 2D side-scrolling shooter, players use magic barriers to turn enemy bullets into gold. The series originated on the PC in 2007 and then in arcades in 2009, according to Andriasang. The XBLA version will feature an additional character, new modes, and Xbox Live support--which was not detailed in the reveal.

Trouble Witches Neo is expected to launch this winter for 800MS Points ($10). While regions were not specified, SNK Playmore has released an English trailer for the title, giving us some hope that North America will get a chance to collect coins with those rabble-rousing witches soon.
