Bungie's Marathon coming to XBLA?

According to Xbox-Achiv, the USK (aka the German ESRB) has rated Marathon: Durandal.

Marathon, if you haven't already wet yourself with glee, is a classic Bungie franchise. (Yeah, they actually made games before a man in green armor changed everything.)

Marathon originally debuted in 1994 on the Macintosh and completed the trio of releases in 1996. Halo owes much of its genesis to Marathon, so all you Halo junkies, get to learnin'. (Marathon, Xbox 360)

People have been asking for this for so long
Would be great to finally get it.
Diselage  +   3163d ago
This should be a lot of fun. To be honest i can't believe they've been putting it off for this long.

Holy cow!
The original only ran on Macs, so practically nobody got it. ;-)
This should be great.
Diselage  +   3163d ago
Well it's not like they were used to ever playing games on macs, probably gave all the teaches that use macs a heart attack.

I wonder
Does any one know what kind of MP the original had? Because when it comes to XBLA that is what usually defines a games longevity.

I've seen some videos
From what I could tell it was just straight up slayer.

marathon was the $#@*! i played a lot of this as a child, great game. i actually found a version of marathon that i could get to run on my pc just to reminisce.

marathon was god.
I loved it, story owned, even liked the possible halo tie in. My memory isn't as good, but I remember they couldn't find one of the demons which was rumored to be the first SPARTAN model. Love it.

Add Multiplayer to Marathon and you could actually get a game to pass the time until Halo 3 arrives instead of the dreadful (in my opinion) Shadowrun!

I hope this game has some MP or this probably won't be that great of a deal, just a one or two time run through.

There's a place were you can download marathon for the PC I just forgot where. But I've played it and it's kinda like Doom only it's more Haloish in some ways.

they better make it cheap, since the 3 original games can be foud for FREE at the Bungie page

Its a very cool game you can get lost sometimes but apart from that it has a lot fo similarities with Halo
Diselage  +   3162d ago
Who knows they may add MP or levels to make it worth the money you'll have to pay.

Please, oh please, let this be true!

Mo' Halo. NAO!
