Avatar Update for Band of Bugs Available Today

Band of Bugs for Xbox LIVE Arcade gets Avatar support and all-new DLC

The Xbox LIVE Arcade game Band of Bugs will get a slew of new content today. The game will receive a free update to include Avatar support in both the main campaign and the online Spider Hunter multiplayer mode. In addition, NinjaBee will be releasing Tales of Kaloki, a new, game-changing DLC, and a Band of Bugs Premium Theme. To celebrate, the developers will be hosting a Game with Developers on Saturday, July 11.

The Game with Developers will be hosted by Xbox LIVE on Saturday, July 11 from 7–10 p.m. EST. Gold members who are interested in playing should visit Xbox.com or NinjaBee.com/blog for a list of the developers’ gamertags to send friend requests to. The developers will spend the majority of their time battling it out in eight-player Spider Hunter mode.

The added Avatar support will allow gamers the option of replacing the original story’s hero, Maal, with their custom Avatar as they play through the main story mode. Players will also be able to engage in hand-to-hand combat and spell casting in eight-player Spider Hunter mode. Spider Hunter, one of several multiplayer modes, allows players to battle with or against their friends over Xbox LIVE to survive an onslaught of deadly spiders, mosquitoes, centipedes and more.

The Tales of Kaloki DLC is based on NinjaBee’s first Xbox LIVE Arcade game, Outpost Kaloki X. The DLC is set in space and uses the basic mechanics of Band of Bugs but adds a new tile set, new characters, new story, new skills, new strategy, new attacks and new abilities. The DLC will be 240 Microsoft Points.

In addition, NinjaBee will release a Band of Bugs Premium Theme. This theme, which features scenes from the game and concept art, can be downloaded through the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 240 Microsoft Points.

Band of Bugs is rated E for Everyone.
