It was always going to be tough for Microsoft to live up to the Summer of Arcade’s Castle Crashers, Braid, and Geometry Wars 2. But with a step in the right direction they revealed a slew of new Xbox Live Arcade titles at last night’s Tokyo Game Show keynote. Read more after the jump.

Dominated by updates to classic game series, the list of fresh XBLA games includes the celebrated Space Invaders Extreme, Arkanoid Live (with new co-op and versus modes), Meteos Wars, King of Fighters Ultimate 98, Metal Slug 7, and R-Type. I was sold on Space Invaders Extreme, but R-Type, wow, one of my favourite games of all time.
