Not content with releasing one Xbox One game this week, Zen Studios has now released their second ID@Xbox title in three days.

KickBeat – Special Edition
Size: 879.54 MB
Price: US$9.99 / £7.99 / €9.99 / AU$13.45
From indie pioneers Zen Studios (makers of Pinball FX2 and CastleStorm) comes KickBeat Special Edition, an innovative rhythm game with a Kung Fu theme, featuring fully 3D characters and high-energy music! The KickBeat Special Edition Soundtrack features tracks from a diverse lineup of artists from well known bands such as Pendulum and Marilyn Manson, to indie musicians Celldweller and Blue Stahli, to hidden talents like electronic music producer Voicians and Taiwanese rapper Shen Yi. KickBeat Special Edition Soundtrack Pendulum - Self vs. Self, Propane Nightmares (Celldweller Remix) Celldweller – Switchback, I Can’t Wait Marilyn Manson – The Beautiful People Shen Yi – War Dance POD – Boom Papa Roach – Last Resort Blue Stahli – Takedown, Scrape, Ultranumb Southpaw Swagger – It’s Showtime Pre-Fight Hype – It’s Goin Down Voicians – Fighters, The Construct Rob Zombie – Scum of the Earth Styles Beyond – Nine Thou (Grant Mohrman “Superstar’ Remix) Pre-Fight Hype & Southpaw Swagger – Tug-O-War enV – Destination enV – RPM enV – Vee enV – Shakestopper enV – OCP enV - Bloom We got rid of the bars, arrows, button icons, etc. that other music games rely on as action cues and replaced them with fully 3D animated characters. Instead of just seeing characters in the background moving to a preset script as eye candy while the actual gameplay takes place in an abstract 2D interface, you actually control and react to those 3D characters. That means you actually get to focus your attention on what those characters are doing! As you play the game, you're creating your own fight sequence with your button presses. We also let you get rid of all the other interface parts (such as score) if you like, so that there are no distractions from the action. KickBeat features a full length single player campaign with beautifully hand drawn animations and a unique art style.
Xbox LIVE Arcade Games

We get nothing for two months and then two come along in the same week.

Anna - Extended Edition
Size: 1.08 GB
Price: US$14.99 / £11.99 / €14.99
Set in an abandoned sawmill nestled high in the Italian mountains, Anna challenges the player to uncover horrific clues and use them to solve puzzles related to your character’s dark past.
