XBL Summer of Arcade Detailed

Company: Microsoft
Product: Summer of Arcade

Today Microsoft released a few more details about this year's Summer of Arcade promotion on XBLA. Beginning July 20, a slew of new XBLA will be released every week. Though new XBLA games aren't exactly a rare occurrence, past Summer of Arcade releases have gone down as some of the service's best titles.

2011's Summer of Arcade kicks off with Bastion, an action RPG with a unique narrative twist. As you play, a gravelly-voiced narrator dynamically calls the action. You can read more about Bastion here . It will be available for 1200 Microsoft Points (MSP).

Other games in the promotion include:

  • From Dust (Ubisoft Montpellier/Ubisoft)
    July 27 -- 1200 MSP

  • Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet (Fuelcell/Microsoft Studios)
    August 3 -- 1200 MSP

  • Fruit Ninja Kinect (Halfbrick/Microsoft Studios)
    August 10 -- 800 MSP

  • Toy Soldiers: Cold War (Signal Studios/Microsoft Studios)
    August 17 -- 1200 MSP

Players who purchase all five games will receive a free copy of Crimson Alliance, Certain Affinity's three-player co-op action RPG (retail price: 1200 MSP) when it releases on September 7.
