Doom II Appears On XBLA

Bizarrely, id’s Doom II has appeared on the Xbox Live Arcade. Well, the Japanese one, at least, so if you’ve got 800 spare Microsoft Points linked to a Japanese account it’s yours.

If not, there’s the free demo to grab, or you can wait until Wednesday when the full, riotous first person shooter will be available for everyone on the planet, as confirmed by Major Nelson.


Doom II’s absolutely bloody brilliant, even by today’s standards, and if the port’s anywhere near as solid as the first game’s XBLA outing we’ll be happy bunnies indeed in just two short day’s time.

Voodoo Dice is also out this week for the 360.
