Xbox Summer of Arcade Games Lineup Announced

/ Jul 9th, 2013 No Comments

Summer of Arcade

Microsoft announced the annual Xbox Live Summer of Arcade will kick off Aug. 7 and will feature four arcade titles that will be released throughout the month.

Starting with the release of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons on Aug. 7 for 1200 Microsoft Points, a new title will be released every week. On Aug. 14, Charlie Murder will be available for 800 Microsoft Points. Flashback is set to release Aug. 21 and will also cost 800 Microsoft Points. On Aug. 28, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows will be available for 1200 Microsoft Points.

Players who purchase two of the four titles will receive a free souls pack for Ascend: Hand of Kul.

Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a third-person puzzle game developed by Starbreeze Studios that puts the player in the shoes of two brothers trying to find a cure for their sick father. Players will control the two brothers simultaneously in order to solve puzzles. The story-driven game is a large departure for Starbreeze Studios, which is well known for violent shooters such as The Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness.

Second on the lineup is Charlie Murder, a side-scrolling fighting game that incorporates RPG elements. Players will assume the role of one of five members of the Charlie Murder punk rock band, using their character’s powers to battle hordes of undead, angry rioters and witches. The game will include four player co-op and a soundtrack composed and performed by Ska Studios duo James and Michelle Silva.

A remake of the original 1992 PC hit of the same title, Flashback will task players with jumping, shooting and flying their way through a 2D landscape as Conrad, a man who wakes up in the middle of a jungle with no recollection of who he is. The game has been remade by the original’s same core team in Unreal Engine 3.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will allow players to take control of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael as they fight to save New York from mutants, the Foot and Shredder. The third-person fighting game is being developed by Red Fly Studios and will feature seamless drop-in, drop-out co-op and team combo moves.
