EA announces trio of brand new XBLA, PSN, and PC games

EA’s bread-and-butter may be triple-A unfathomable-budget titles, but the publisher’s venturing outside the realm of dudes with guns, race cars, and Gears-of-War-but-with-boy-wizards with three very interesting-looking indie titles.

First up, there’s Warp, which is a top-down stealth-action title from indie dev Trapdoor. It features “a sci-fi world with a distinctive art style, addicting levels, hazardous traps and challenging puzzles,” and is set to launch in summer 2011.

The Fancy Pants Adventures, meanwhile, is a port of popular browser-based sidescroller, but with a new world, story, and modes designed for the fanciest, classiest folks of all: console gamers. It’s coming next spring thanks to a partnership between EA, Borne Games, and Over The Top Games.

Finally, there’s Gatling Gears, which is a twin-stick shooter from Vanguard Games, the product of a recent merger Guerrilla Games and Greed Corp developer W!Games. Twin-sticked and shooty though it may be, Gatling Gears is a Greed Corp sequel at heart, featuring “collapsing land, walker units and warring factions.” It’s also due next spring.

Pertinent press releases are here, here, and here.

Fancy Pants Adventures is trailered below (thanks, Blerk).

    Fancy Pants! The Flash version is great, I hope they put a similar amount of love into it as Super Meat Boy got.

    Warp sounds interesting, Gatling…. we’ll see.

    Fancy Pants is the nuts, indeed. Kind of like Sonic meets Dr Seuss.

    It looks interesting… But isnt this just a way of making people pay for games that are actually free? I mean, The Fancy Pants Adventures is technically playable in the PS3′s web browser. Seriously, play it through New Grounds and it’ll boot up. The only reason is isnt fully playable is because of control issues (but maybe plugging in a keyboard will fix that, i havent tried).

    Sure its got new stuff but is that stuff worth slapping a price tag on it over the original flash version?

    Depends what they do. Super Meat Boy was vastly enhanced over the original Flash version and had far, far more content. A quick port is obviously bad, but show it some proper love and the original Flash game just looks like the prototype.
