XBLA Summer of Arcade Titles Confirmed

Phil Spencer, in his pre-E3 interview on GTTV, has confirmed the titles to be included in the Xbox Live Marketplace’s Summer of Arcade promotion. This promotion is a lucrative one with many XBLA developers vying to get their titles included. In previous years it has included Braid and Shadow Complex.

This year’s batch looks like this:

  • Bastion – an action RPG with a narrator that reacts to the things you do in game.
  • From Dust – Eric Chahi’s fascinating-looking sandbox physics game in which you can alter the geography and influence tribe’s.
  • Fruit Ninja Kinect – Er, a ninja that slices up fruit. On Kinect.
  • Toy Soldiers: Cold War –  Follow up to one of the best little strategy games on XBLA.
  • Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet – An interesting title that is reminiscent of PixelJunk Shooter and Limbo. Weirdly.


  1. Compared to last year, what an awful line up. Fruit Ninja????? It’s awful on the iPhone, can’t understand the point even releasing it.
