Each year Xbox Live Arcade has a "Summer of Arcade" special that features a set of major releases spread out over a few weeks. This year the five featured downloadable games are Deadlight, Hybrid, Dust: An Elysian Tail, Wreckateer, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD. Check out the video roundup past the break.
2011 will no doubt come to be known as a banner year for HD upgrades and classic rereleases. Get primed for the return of Sonic CD—originally released for the Sega CD add-on hardware in 1993—with a fresh trailer after the jump!
Any news of Reverge Labs' Skullgirls is met with a lot of hard-earned excitement. Its offbeat all-female cast and high level of detail in its animation are some of its best points, but with every new trailer we get to see more of the "competition-level fighter" that Reverge is trying to build. Hit the jump to see the trailer for Skullgirls' newest fighter, the parasol-wielding Parasoul.
UPDATE: It turns out it was Major Nelson who jumped the gun! According to his Twitter he made a mistake, and Guardian Heroes does not release tomorrow via XBLA. No further details available.
As revealed via Major Nelson's list of games Microsoft will be showing at this week's Penny Arcade Expo, 1993's Sonic CD is on its way to Xbox 360's download service. Hit the jump for more.
Grasshopper Manufacture—AKA the busiest darn developer on the block—has teamed up with Digital Reality for Sine Mora, a shooter bound for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer.
How do you get something so right so very wrong? Double Dragon II: The Revenge—released in arcades in 1988 before being ported to NES the following year—was a fantastic game, but this 3D remake for Xbox Live Arcade looks borderline criminal. See for yourself after the jump.
Normally I wouldn't even bother posting about anything with the word "BloodRayne" in it, unless I planned on setting up an Uwe Boll joke. BloodRayne: Betrayal, however, is different. Find out why you should care about its August 30/31 release date after the jump.
Xbox Live Arcade's Summer of Arcade is an annual event during which some of the most anticipated Arcade titles pop up for download, and this year sees five new games lighting up XBLA, starting with Bastion on July 20. Hit the jump to see what else is in store.
