XBLA Friday: June 14th, 2013 [UPDATE]

By Rebecca Smith,
Edit: Well, Microsoft managed to take us all by surprise. Not only did we get a surprise XBLA release on Wednesday, we've got a second title for Friday too. The updated list is below.

Original Story:

You'll notice that this article isn't in its usual Monday slot. You'll also notice that it's called XBLA Friday instead of XBLA Wednesday. This is because there wasn't going to be an XBLA release this week until confirmation arrived this morning that a surprising entry was going to be released on Friday. This title has spent four years in development and has suffered delay after delay. This week we finally get to race fireballs around a variety of different tracks.
