Peggle XBLA Confirmed, ESRB Rates Other Unannounced Games (Updated)

Update: Peggle is indeed headed to Xbox Live Arcade and is tentatively slated for a Q2 release, a PopCap representative has confirmed to Shacknews.

Original Story: PopCap's ultra-addictive and mega-colorful casual gaming sensation Peggle is on its way to the Xbox 360, according a listing on the Entertainment Software Rating Board web site.

Though not officially confirmed, the title is expected to be a downloadable Xbox Live Arcade game, as past PopCap Xbox 360 releases, such as Zuma, have been. It has been assigned an "E for Everyone" rating.

Previously released on PC, Mac, and the iPod, the Pachinko-like skill-based offerings of Peggle have won over many a cold-hearted gamer despite its use of unicorns, rainbows, and Beethoven's "Ode to Joy." A mature Half-Life themed version, dubbed Peggle Extreme, was included with PC copies of Valve's The Orange Box (PC, PS3, X360) last year.

As pointed out by Xbox 360 Fanboy, other previously unannounced and E-rated Xbox 360 titles on the ESRB's site include Bliss Island from Codemasters and Majesco's Ultra Bust-A-Move, the latter of which could indicate a downloadable version of the original Xbox edition through Microsoft's recent Xbox Originals program.

      Popcap should nominate Remo as "Official Peggle Spokesperson." He's just such a huge fan.
