Xbox Live programming director Larry "Major Nelson" Hyrb announced release dates and pricing for all of the features downloadable games in its upcoming Summer of Arcade XBLA campaign:

  • July 20: Bastion - 1200 MS Points
  • July 27: From Dust - 1200 MS Points
  • August 3 :Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet - 1200 MS Points
  • August 10: Fruit Ninja Kinect - 800 MS Points
  • August 17: Toy Soldiers: Cold War - 1200 MS Points
All those titles, based on the media I've seen so far at least, look worth their download, but Microsoft is providing an extra incentive for gamers to buy the entire Summer of Arcade lineup.

If you purchase all five, you will also receive a free copy of Certain Affinity's action RPG Crimson Alliance (usually 1200 MS Points) when that releases some time later this year.
