Summer of Arcade Titles Release Date and Price Revealed

Major Nelson announced via his blog the summer release dates and prices for four of 2013’s Summer of Arcade promotion starting Aug 7.

The first title is Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons — Aug 7. 1,200 Microsoft Points; followed by Charlie Murder — Aug 14. 800 MSP, Flashback — Aug 2. 800 MSP and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows — Aug 28. 1,200 MSP.

Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade puts out some good titles and it seems this summer will be no different. Brothers is already receiving positive reviews and drawing parallels with Journey and Fable, with IGN stating Brothers, “might be the best downloadable title since Journey.”

Charlie Murder looks to be an aesthetically flat and stylish beat ’em up; Flashback is an, ahem, flashback to the days of Contra; Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looks like the Turtles game we’ve been wanting for years now, and fell short of with the last remake of the SNES classic.

Nelson notes buying any two Summer of Arcade games comes with the Ascend: Hand of Kul Souls Pack.
