XBLA gets Puzzle Fighter and Streets of Rage 2

Today is a somewhat surprising Xbox Live Arcade Wednesday offering up a twofer that we weren't clued in on. One half of the twofer that we fully expected to release today is Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix which is available for 800 Microsoft points and offers lots of multiplayer puzzle fighting fun. We hear it's Puzzle Fighter'licious! The other half of the surprise XBLA twofer is SEGA's Streets of Rage 2 which was super secretly sprung on us as we had no prior knowledge of its release this week. Streets of Rage 2 is available for 400 Microsoft points and allows players to take on the evil Mr. X in two player online co-op. Sorry War World, SEGA is in town this week.

Both games are available for download this very moment off of the XBLA and we're hoping that maybe next time Microsoft will be kind enough to clue us in on ALL the game releases before Arcade Wednesday rolls around. We're old grumps who don't like surprises unless they make us filthy rich.
