XBLA Block Party brings Perfect Dark, Game Room in March

Xbox 360’s annual The Summer of Arcade — an ‘event’ where several major Xbox Live Arcade titles are released over the course of a single month — is getting a spin-off of sorts. Microsoft appears to be starting a second such series of releases, this time earlier in the year, with next month’s Xbox Live Arcade Block Party.

The X10 newsburst the company sent out today details four titles to be released under the Block Party umbrella — Toy Soldiers (pictured), Game Room, the long-awaited Perfect Dark remake and Scrap Metal.

Toy Soldiers will be kicking off the festivities on March 3 and, if the order in which the games were presented in the announcement is anything to go by, will be followed by the release of Game Room, Perfect Dark and finally Scrap Metal.
