Hudson Entertainment has officially confirmed the launch date for Omega Five this week, announcing that the original shooter IP from Natsume will scroll onto the Xbox Live Arcade on January 9th at a cost of 800 Microsoft Points. After all the momentous releases of the holiday season, it’s the perfect time for some smaller XBLA games to come along and tide gamers over until the year really gets going, so Omega Five should do very well. Definitely looking forward to it here, that’s for sure.

In other Hudson news this week, the publisher has announced the development of Deca Sports, a Wii-exclusive sports compilation targeting the casual gamer. Deca Sports, due out this summer, will feature 10 sporting events in all — Beach Volleyball, Snowboard Cross, Badminton, Basketball, Curling, Figure Skating, Archery, Supercross, Soccer and Kart Racing — each presenting unique uses of the Wii Remote in single-player, multiplayer and training modes.

“We have seen tremendous growth in the casual sports gaming market in the last few years, and saw an opportunity that would be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Wii” said John Greiner, President and CEO of Hudson Entertainment. “With Deca Sports we wanted to offer a sports package that is unrivaled in terms of sheer number of available sports. More importantly, the game is easy to play, but offers layers of depth that even hardcore sports enthusiasts will love to play.”
