Could it be? It appears that Major Nelson has come through for us two weeks in a row. Of course, things aren't as perfect as they seem. What you see below is the newly corrected list. When the list originally appeared, it had a surprise visitor: Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.
Ever since that point speculation has run rampant. The most common theory seems to be this: SPFIITHDR appeared on PartnerNet and was "purchased" by so many people that it appeared on the list. Strange but true? We'll never know. So, let's just look (and read) below and focus on what we do know.

music playing vocal battering whilst engaging in said tactical destruction? Well get ready to ninja rope around the Desert, flips some banana bombs in Manhattan, and get your wind velocity calculations on with some new grooves voices.
Major Nelson's got the skinny on all the new Worms DLC including the aforementioned Desert and Manhattan landscapes (150 MSP/ea.). The Worms

First the title update, and now official Worms DLC details over at Xboxic. And better yet, the DLC drops this Wednesday (AKA tomorrow!) to continue the instant gratification from Team17. Some of the content will even be free. Here's the quick and dirty breakdown:
Xboxic has some of the gamerpic images and also point to the Team17 forums (registration required) where more pics can be found. Any of you about to dust off the game and load up some new content?
[Thanks JUDE1, keep 'em coming!]
So no more double weapon ninja-roping for you cheaters out there. Balance has been restored. Now where's the Holy Hand Grenade?
Kotaku is reporting that the UK's 360 Magazine will be having a Worms HD tournament this month. Here's the "official" details.[quote]To enter just email your Gamertag and country of residence to 360 [at] imagine-publishing.co.uk. The first round will be starting sometime near the end of the month. The winner will get a "bundle" of Microsoft points. Go on, do us proud. [/quote]I wonder how much the bundle will be? XBLArcade.com forum goer Measure won 100,000 MS points in the Assault Heroes contest; however, my guess is the winner of this contest will not be as lucky. Is it time to dust off your Worms copy?

Anyone else sick of hearing "Ich bin tot" when your Worm does something dumb?
Now that we know that Worms will be wiggling it's way onto XBLA this Wednesday, we decided to take a look around at the different screen shots and interviews to see what would and what wouldn't be making the weapon list for the title. While it seems that many of peoples favorites are indeed missing, we should be getting enough weapons to keep even the most hard-core Worms fan happy.
User Whet Wurm has been kind enough to help figure out all of the 22 Weapons that will be shipping this Wednesday with Worms.

That's right! After the delays, the 're-certification' - Team17 has just announced that Worms will be making their way onto Xbox Live Arcade this Wednesday, at an 800 Microsoft Points price! Take a look at some of the game's features:
I've got to admit, I am excited! Anyone else?
[UPDATE] Just added the full feature list from the Press Release
Dig throught your couch and dirty pairs of pants because there is no mix up this time. A post on the Team 17 forums has revealed that Worms has passed certification and is now in discussions for a release date. Will it be next week? Who knows but it is bound to be soon (not tomorrow).
