Xbox Live - Monster Island expands to France and other nations

Simpsons Monster Island

Monster Island is an Xbox Live title with a tumultuous history. First it launched in the US-only rather than worldwide and with Achievements that broke the Live rules by requiring players to spend money off the bat, and then it got pulled. The game eventually came back with fixed Achievements, and shortly thereafter became available in the United Kingdom too. When would other nations get to visit Monster Island (which is actually a peninsula), we wondered?

Today’s the day, it seems! Monster Island is now available in the frost-bitten climes of France. The region is known for its year-round snows and deadly walrus attacks. It’s also one of the last nations on Earth to still use Latin as its official language. Also, Rayman comes from there (really). Okay, so I don’t know anything about mysterious France, but I do know people from there can finally grab Monster Island and start earning Achievements like the rest of us.

Monster Island

Monster Island costs $2.99 (in the US) and there is a free trial. Get it here on the Marketplace. Now that the game has launched in France, could it be available in others as well? Let us know in the comments below, readers.

Thanks to Zebrasqual for the tip!

zeke1676 says:

Add Australia to the list, yay!!!

Tomasz S. says:

It seems it went global. No need to list all the countries supported by WP7.

But I doubt it's worth $3.

MrSean490 says:

Bothers me this is $3.49 in the Australian marketplace when others get it cheaper but more importantly when a great game such as Feed Me Oil is 99c in the AU store.

Also available in Indian marketplace.

Yay add india in the list

yeyixic says:

greg2k says:

So they tried ripping people off with one of the achievements? Not getting my money, that's for sure...

Paul Acevedo says:

That's a way of looking at it, but the problem has since been fixed. Follow the link about it coming back to the Marketplace and you'll learn how it happened from both MS and Miniclip.
