Wing Commander Arena, set to release on the XBLA sometime this summer, takes the classic space combat simulation game in a much more action-oriented direction. This game sheds features like piloting complicated crafts, interacting with NPCs, and following a robust storyline, in favor of delivering a more simplistic arcade shooting experience. For its setup, The Terran Confederation and Kilrathi Assembly of Clans have eradicated Nephilim forces, but in the ensuing relative peace battles have broken out on the frontier. That's about all you get in terms of story here, visible only on the "How to Play" menu.
More details from this first peak of what's to be a great XBLA title after the jump.
