Snoopy Flying Ace, an aerial dogfighting game (literally, hurhur) I've kept a close watch on since Smart Bomb Interactive revealed the project more than a year ago, comes out today on Xbox Live Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points -- unfortunately, it seems the Wii version that was in the works fell by the wayside.

So, why should you care about yet another licensed Snoopy game from a studio whose claim to fame is Pacman World Rally and Bee Movie Game? Well, look at that trailer! Also, this is likely the closest you'll get to a sequel for Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge.

The game includes 16 customizable planes (including a flying doghouse), 15 different weapons, 10 battlefields from Snoopy's imagination, nine online game modes offering matches for up to 16 players, and the ability to play as either your Xbox Live Avatar or one of the 12 classic members from the Peanuts gang, including Charlie Brown or Lucy.

You can see more screenshots and download a free trial for Snoopy Flying Ace on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
