Destination Arcade to launch with the Summer of Arcade

 

I wanted to let you know that the Destination Arcade release date has been moved to next Wednesday to kick off the launch of the Summer of Arcade. We’ll start on July 21st with Limbo, followed by Hydro Thunder Hurricane, Castlevania Harmony of Despair, Monday Night Combat and we finish it off with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. Also remember that if you purchase all five titles, and you’ll receive 1200 Points back. Complete schedule and details here. As I mentioned in my original post, Destination Arcade will only be available in the US. If I learn of any plans for other regions, I’ll be sure to let you know.

 

Edit: I have learned that the Destination Arcade app will only be available for the duration of the Summer of Arcade promotion which ends August 18th.

    Every game will cost 1200 points. A bit expensive…

    Yes. As I noted above and in my original post…DA will be available in the US only. I don’t know what the plans are for adding support for additional regions.

    Not really that excited for any of the SoA releases this year. Needs more Twisted Pixel.

    This is great, because I love XBLA. Although, I’m not that excited for the summer arcade games this year. I’ll still try them out though, who knows.

    Castlevania and Monday Night Combat are getting picked up for sure and maybe Hydro Thunder but most definitely DO NOT WANT Tomb Raider.

    I never received my 1200 points from last summers event, or the more recent get points back scheme. So I don’t think I trust these promotions, I will buy hydro thunder, but no strong impulse to buy them all this time.

    “I won’t be buying one title this summer…” – Yeah, the 60 dollars you could have spent on those 5 games would be better spent on awesome games like Naughty Bear, lol……….

    I am looking forward to hydro thunder hurricane. I enjoyed the dreamcast one. I don’t know about the other games. 1200 MS points a game will go down well.

    I will trial Monday Night Combat, but highly unlikely that I will pick up any of the others until they are a deal of the week. Deathspank however, will be mine wednesday.

    Limbo and Castlevania are the only two games I am willing to pay $15. Everything else, I can wait on.

    Not too excited for this Summer of Arcade. Limbo looks promising, everything else probably passing on.
