Assault Heroes 2 Launches on Xbox Live Arcade

Wa wa wa wa wa – the kamikazes are attacking again! Sierra Online, a division of Vivendi Games, has released Assault Heroes 2 for Xbox Live Arcade for the Xbox 360. The highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning Assault Heroes game comes re-loaded with even more high-intensity battles, vicious enemies and brand new environments, including outer space. In the first sequel to a title that originated on Xbox LIVE Arcade, players can also hi-jack enemy vehicles, fight through more levels, spend more time on-foot and join up with friends with enhanced co-operative gameplay modes.

“Assault Heroes 2 has a lot to live up to and gamers won’t be disappointed because this sequel takes the arcade shooter to a whole new level,” said Nicole Perez, vice president of marketing, Sierra Online. “Wanako has created a game that goes above and beyond the high standards set by the hugely successful, original title.”
