Two great co-op titles, Happy Wars and Fruit Ninja Kinect want to have their gamers get in the spirit of Halloween, and they’re going to do it through small, fun-sized DLC additions.
First up is Happy Wars. Not only is it the first free-to-play game XBLA has ever released, but it also comes with its own Halloween themed map for players to enjoy! Filled with pumpkin jack-o-lanterns, tombstones, scarecrow statues, creepy pink liquid rivers, and a moonlit night sky, the “Pumpkin” map fits the trick-or-treating holiday perfectly.
