Anomaly: Warzone Earth coming to XBLA in Spring 2012

Anomaly: Warzone Earth, the freshmen effort from developer 11 Bit Studios, has been announced for the Xbox Live Arcade. Originally available on the PC and iOS platform, the strategy game will makes its console debut in spring 2012, and include six exclusive "Tactical Trials levels."

"While it's commonly known that strategy games are hard to control via gamepad, thanks to our model of gameplay where you have the on-field Commander and tactical view for controlling the squad, Anomaly is easily accessible and, so-to-speak, user-friendly strategy on console," the announcement noted.

Continuing to assuage any potential controller-based fears, a post on the game's official site reminds that Anomaly: Warzone Earth was "natively designed to play with the gamepad."
