Microsoft has announced that its next regular Xbox Live Arcade update will see the addition of Sega and Stainless Games' Happy Tree Friends False Alarm, as well as board game conversion Ticket To Ride from Playful Entertainment.

Microsoft says that players will "assume the persona of Lumpy the moose," in Happy Tree Friends, who "must save his clumsy friends by blasting open areas when they are trapped or deep freezing them before they stumble into danger," across 10 exclusive scenarios, with three levels and new cut scenes each.

Ticket To Ride is based on the 2004 award winning board game also known as Zug um Zug, which has up to five Xbox Live players (or four local) planning routes and connecting cities across the country, earning points for claiming tracks and completing tickets.

Both games will be available Wednesday June 25th, and will be priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10) each.
