Fans of, well, Soccer, will be pleased as punch to learn that the remake of 1994's Sensible World of Soccer
will finally be making its way to Xbox Live Arcade sometime this month. At least, it will if everything goes well, according to developer Codemasters.
Codemasters producer Jim Brown tells Eurogamer
that the classic Soccer/Football title still has another round of submissions internally, as well as Microsoft's own certification process, but that the team anticipates the game's availability on XBLA within the month. According to Brown, delays on the game's release have been due to the multiplayer network code, which has been reworked significantly for stability. Sensible World of Soccer
was deemed one of the ten most important games of all time
back in March, by a panel including our very own Chris Grant.
