Two new XBOX Originals will be arriving on the XBOX Live Marketplace on Monday 19th May 2008. The first is Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse, originally released on the XBOX in 2005.

It’s 1959 and players take control of Edward “Stubbs” Stubblefield a zombie with an insatiable hunger for human brains. How could this happen?

The answer lies buried somewhere in Punchbowl, Pennsylvania, a high-tech “City of the Future” built by the world’s richest man. Punchbowl is a paradise of hovercars and helper robots, where crime and pollution simply don’t exist. It’s the perfect city: safe, clean, and convenient. Stubbs can’t wait to move in … and have the last laugh on humanity. Indulge your appetite for vengeance … and brains.

Availability: All XBOX Live Regions except Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Korea and Japan.

The second title is Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows, also originally released on the XBOX in 2005.

The legendary arcade classic Gauntlet is reborn with a new vision, story, and gameplay in Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows.
Seeking to undo the past, a powerful emperor is lost in his own dreams and nightmares. After being imprisoned by the emperor for two centuries, four immortal heroes set out to undo their tormentor’s lifetime of regrets. In the process, they must deal with the consequences of their own actions and watch as the world shakes apart around them.

Seven Sorrows is the fusion of fantasy fighting action with the strategy and fascination of user-friendly RPG elements, challenging gamers in solo play, co-op, and a thriving online community.

Availability: All XBOX Live Regions except Korea and Japan.

Both titles will be 1200 Microsoft Points and available from Monday.
