Microsoft studios to publisher Grasshopper shmup.

Sine Mora, Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality’s upcoming shoot ’em up downloadable – previously thought to be a multiplatform affair – is coming exclusively to Xbox LIVE Arcade, publisher Microsoft revealed today.

A “diesel punk”-style shooter with an emphasis on time, the game promises to mix “cassic shooter sensibilities” with “next-gen presentation” that appeals to both “hardcore and casual gamers alike.”

The game includes a Story Mode that tells an “over-the-top tale,” and Arcade Mode. It’ll ovffer over 60 comibnations of planes, characters and time manipulation devices to complete each stage with “scaling difficulty.” Akira Yamaoka, known for his work on the Silent Hill series, will compose Sine Mora.

A release date and price have yet to be announced.

This is the announcement PlayXBLA teased earlier this week.

    Akira Yamaoka you say? Interesting. I think its a little weird for him to be working with shmups but then again, what do I know?
