EA’s announced that human body shooter MicroBot is out now on Xbox Live Arcade, with a release later in the week for PSN.

According to a press release put out today, it’ll set you back 400 MSP if you get it from Live. Looks as though there’s been some kind of left hand-right hand scenario, though: the game’s listed at 800 MSP (thanks, izekial27).

The game, developed by Sky Entertainment and published by EA, has you on a mission to “destroy a biotechnological infestation” inside the human body.

You’ll also “battle malicious enemies as they travel through the bloodstream, bones, lungs and brain.”

You can play MicroBot’s story on your own or with a friend in drop-in-out co-op. There’s also a Challenge mode too.

“When we set out to create MicroBot, we wanted to ensure it provided a unique gameplay experience setting it apart from other offerings in the digital download marketplace,” said EA’s Jason Haber.

“By taking players inside a place they have rarely visited before – the human body – and giving gamers endless customization options, we made a game that lives up to that vision and, most importantly, provides an addictive gameplay experience for anyone who plays games on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.”
