Microsoft sends word that this coming Wednesday is Root Beer Tapper release day on the Xbox Live Arcade.

Order up bottomless, frothy fun this Xbox Live Arcade Wednesday with “Root Beer Tapper” from Digital Eclipse and Midway. Impatient patrons cannot get enough of the revitalized carbonated beverage classic, and neither will gamers. “Root Beer Tapper” will be available for download on Xbox Live Arcade for Xbox 360 beginning Wednesday, Feb. 7, at 9 a.m. GMT (1 a.m. PST).

Updated to support a high-definition soda shop experience, “Root Beer Tapper” puts players behind the bar, face-to-face with salivating customers. They must ensure that patrons’ root beer mugs are filled to the brim or risk losing a job. Great service with a smile, on the other hand, can earn players extra points in the form of tips.

You can attempt the thirst-quenching thrill game alone, or tap into multiplayer mode to stave off parched cowboys, athletes, punk rockers and even a few aliens. The best bartender can boast his or her score on the Xbox Live Leaderboards.

“Root Beer Tapper” will be available worldwide (excluding Korea and Japan) for 400 Microsoft Points.
