Serious Sam DD XXL bringing co-op 2D shooting action to XBLA in February

Serious Sam is coming back for more action on Xbox Live Arcade, except this time he’s headed to the second dimension. Devolver Digital/Mastertronic today revealed a new side-scrolling, co-op enabled 2D shooter that looks to be Contra’s crazier, and much uglier, cousin.

Take a look at the screens and the first footage below.
