Today Microsoft’s Major Nelson announced the prices and release schedule for Xbox Live Summer of Arcade promotion. While the promotion was announced about month ago, the specifics haven’t bee revealed until today. Check below for everything you need to know to get some exciting new titles at great prices!

The Summer of Arcade has been responsible for the rollout of some of the best Xbox Live Arcade titles over the years. Last summer’s line up included the beautiful action RPG, Dust. Previous years have included indie classics like Bastion, From Dust, and Limbo.

This year looks to have some great titles as well, starting with Brothers on August 7th. Brothers is a fantasy adventure starring (you guessed it) 2 brothers. It will cost you 1200 Microsoft Points (MSP) -or $15.

On August 14, Charlie Murder will release for 800 MSP (or $10). Not much information has come out about this one, but the brief description is intriguing:  “Fallen punk rock idols Charlie Murder must face off against rival death metal band Gore Quaffer and their army of the damned in an RPG brawler hybrid inspired by coin-op beat ‘em ups and dungeon crawler.”

Flashback, the remake of the early 90’s classic will be coming out on August 21st for 800 MSP (or $10).

Finally, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles close out the promotion on August 28th with a brand new adventure, Out of the Shadows (1200 MSP or $15).

As an added incentive, if you buy all four titles you’ll receive a free Souls Pack for free-to-play title Ascend: Hand of Kul.

So, any Xbox gamers out there picking up these titles?
