The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai Hits XBLA Wed

This week's downloadable addition to the Xbox 360's Xbox Live Arcade will be James Silva's The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai, publisher Microsoft has revealed

Boasting both online and offline two-person cooperative multiplayer, the stylish 2D action game hits on Wednesday, April 1, at 800 Microsoft Points ($10). The game puts players in control of "an undead samurai dishwasher" fending off "an evil cyborg army." .

The unique title, which won Microsoft's 2007 Dream-Build-Play content, also boasts support for a "guitar peripheral," enabling players to "unload electric death by playing wicked solos, perform basic movement, and use the guitar's motion control to rip through enemies with a razor-sharp headstock."

Chris Faylor was previously a games journalist creating content at Shacknews.
