Choplifter HD Priced and Dated

Xbox 360

Next week, the Xbox LIVE Arcade will be graced with the presence of Choplifter HD, a new take on an 80’s classic from Konami. Choplifter HD is developed by inXile Entertainment and will be available for 1200 MS Points on January 11th, 2012.

In Choplifter HD, players take control of a variety of helicopters armed with a number of offensive capabilities so they can swoop in and make daring rescues in hot zones. The game features more than 30 missions ranging from straight prisoner extraction to dropping off saboteurs that blow buildings sky high to saving survivors from viral outbreaks. Pilots must bank, hover, touchdown, and sometimes even shake loose pesky zombies hanging from their choppers. Gamers can also look forward to a few cameos from some of the videogame industry’s most legendary leading men including Duke Nukem and Super Meat Boy.

Choplifter HD combines intense action, humor and tons of variety, creating developer inXile Entertainment’s own, fresh take on the original Choplifter experience.
