Darwinia's Xbox 360 Release Date, Price Confirmed; KrissX on XBLA This Week

800 Microsoft Point ($10) scrambled word puzzler KrissX will be added to the Xbox 360's downloadable Xbox Live Arcade lineup this Wednesday, January 27, Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has declared, with indie studio Introversion passing along word that the long-coming port of its strategy title Darwinia is due February 10.

Introversion's Darwinia+
Dubbed Darwinia+, the release bundles both 2005's Darwinia and 2008's Multiwinia in a prettied-up 1200 MS Point ($15) package, and marks the studio's first console release.

"We have come to think of Darwinia+ as the Director's Cut as it has surpassed our expectations of what we were originally looking to create and now looks and feels smoother than ever," stated Introversion in today's announcement. "We would also like to take this opportunity to give a special thank-you to everyone...Without you guys Introversion's lasting dream of creating true original games would not be a possible."

    Excellent news. I loved the PC version of Darwinia and I'm apt to buy it again, just because I love those cute greenies so goddamn much.

      Yeah, if Darwinia+ has anything new then I'll probably get it because I really loved the original.
