Here’s The Lineup, Prices, Free Game Details For This Year’s Summer Of Arcade

Posted on June 27, 2011 AT 06:49pm

Summer of Arcade – a Microsoft promotion for hand-picked Xbox Live Arcade titles – returns this year, and here’s what you can expect to see.

July 20: Bastion – a very cool isometric adventure RPG (1200 MS points)

July 27: From Dust – an amazing-looking 2D side-scrolling action game (1200 MS points)

Aug 3: Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet – a stylish 2D side-scrolling action adventure (1200 MS points)

Aug 10: Fruit Ninja Kinect – a Kinect version of popular mobile game Fruit Ninja (800 MS points)

Aug 17: Toy Soldiers: Cold War – the follow-up title to the previously-released XBLA title Toy Soldiers (1200 MS points)

Previously, if you purchased all five of the Summer of Arcade titles, you’d get a rebate of Microsoft points. This year, the deal is a little different: you’ll get a free copy of the upcoming co-op dungeon crawler Crimson Alliance (releasing on September 7th for 1200 MS points).
