The XBLA release calendar got a bit off shuffling this week with Takedown: Red Sabre Achievements receiving a last minute delay, missing its scheduled Friday release. Coming to the rescue is Marlow Briggs and his Mayan Death Mask, which released today without any sort of announcement prior. We only found out about Marlow Briggs and the Mask of Death from an Xbox.com marketplace listing containing screenshots and a brief description. The unexpected release may feel a bit random but it could have something to do with the fact that both Marlow Briggs and Takedown are published by 505 Games.
Briggs utilizes the power of the mask that is bound to him to fight the forces of evil in the world. You can get yourself a bit more familiarized with the game with the following trailer.
