Disney Interactive Studios is going to bring both Tron and Discs of Tron to Xbox Live Arcade this summer, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the film's release.

The re-run is being developed by Backbone Charlottetown - the team behind Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for XBLA.

We are told that, "Each game includes the original version as well as an enhanced version with new graphics and audio features. Through Xbox Live Arcade, players can also compete in both games against another player in four online modes.

"In Tron, which first appeared in arcades in 1982, players must complete four increasingly challenging game types to advance through levels. Players battle tank forces, engage in treacherous light cycle combat, attack the MCP cone and fight off grid bugs to enter the I/O tower.

"Discs of Tron, a follow-up 1983 arcade game, enables players to fight Sark, the defender of Master Control Program, in one-on-one battles taking place in three-dimensional futuristic arenas. Players must move between platforms while throwing energy-charged discs at Sark and deflecting oncoming discs to avoid being 'derezzed'."

Tron was also among the featured Disney worlds in Kingdom Hearts II, the RPG developed with Square Enix and available currently on PS2.
