Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon has been listed on Xbox.com and will be released as an Xbox Live Arcade title on May 1st. 

According to the game's listing Blood Dragon is "THE Kick-Ass Cyber Shooter taking place in a bizarre open-world island crawling with evil. Welcome to an 80s VHS vision of the future. The year is 2007 and you are Sargent Rex Colt, a Mark IV Cyber Commando who's fighting against a cyborg army gone rogue. Your mission: get the girl, kill the baddies and save the world.

"Experience every cliche of a VHS era vision of a nuclear future, where cyborgs, blood dragons, mutants and Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, Navy Seals) collide." 

The listing notes that players do not require a copy of Far Cry 3 to play Blood Dragon

Ubisoft revaled the title's website and trailer on April 1st leading some to believe it was an April Fools' joke, however, they then released a number of screenshots and the listing conclusively confirms the title.

While Blood Dragon has yet to be officially announced for PlayStation 3 or PC it's likely heading to those platforms as well.
