Xbox Live Summer of Arcade 2013

Just ahead of Microsoft’s E3 press conference, Microsoft Studios Corporate Vice President Phil Spencer announced the four games that will make up the Summer of Arcade 2013 promotion on the Xbox 360.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows was the first title announced. Out of the Shadows is a co-op brawler based on the popular cartoon and comic franchise. Next up was the indie adventure Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, developed by Starbreeze Studios. Then came Charlie Murder, a side-scrolling brawler developed by Ska Studios (of The Dishwasher fame). Finally, an HD remake of the critically acclaimed space platformer Flashback, first released in 1992, was also shown. Flashback was originally developed by now-defunct French developer Delphine Software and was known as Flashback: The Quest for Identity in North America.

No specific release dates were announced, but these titles will presumably be spaced out over July and August, as in previous Summer of Arcade promotions.
