After last week’s surprising triple release, this week we’ve got another threesome of games to choose from. First up is RocketBowl priced at 800 Microsoft Points.

In RocketBowl, aim and fire your rocket propelled bowling ball to knock down pins using crazy off the wall shots for extra points. Pick from more than 15 different bowling balls and earn upgrades as you play.

Your goal in Shotest Shogi is to capture the King through strategic moves. Already a huge hit in Japan, players can use tutorials to learn the game or just jump right in.

Samurai Shodown II takes you back to the days of great coin-op 2D fighters as you choose from 16 fighters to do battle against a slew of opponents.
