Bangai-O HD delayed until spring, Treasure adding multiplayer

Okay, we have some bad news and some awesome news. First, the bad news: you won't be blowing up robots, houses, mines, and everything around you with bajillions of projectiles in Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury this fall. D3 Publisher announced that the XBLA title has been delayed until spring.

How can a delay be awesome? Developer Treasure is using the extra time to add multiplayer gameplay, including both cooperative and competitive modes. Despite Bangai-O Spirits on the DS having wireless local multiplayer capabilities, Missile Fury was originally announced without any. We suppose we can wait a few months if it means we can share Bangai-O with our friends. Find the statement from D3 after the break.%Gallery-102643%
"We have moved the release date of Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury on XBLA to Spring 2011 in order to add additional features including, multiplayer and co-op.

We look forward to sharing more information regarding Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury with you in the near future."
