XBLA Summer of Arcade hits bundled
Limbo, Trials HD, and Splosion Man compiled for brick-and-mortar distribution on Xbox 360 next month.
While most Xbox Live Arcade titles are strictly digital in their distribution, from time to time, a few downloadable games find their way into stores. Games like Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved, Peggle, and Pac-Man Championship Edition have all found their way into retail compilations of XBLA games, and they're apparently set to be joined by three more of the service's breakout hits.
Amazon.com has put up a product listing for an Xbox Live Arcade three-pack featuring Limbo, Trials HD, and Splosion Man. With an expected release date of April 12, the bundle is commanding a $30 preorder price point. When purchased digitally, the three titles add up to $40.
One of the developers of the games lent the listing some credibility in a post on Twitter. Michael Wilford, CEO and cofounder of Splosion Man creator Twisted Pixel Games, linked to the Amazon page and said the bundle would be coming to North America.
All three of the games listed in the bundle debuted as part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade promotions. The side-scrolling platformer Splosion Man and motorcycle obstacle courses of Trials HD were part of the 2009 Summer of Arcade, while the adventure puzzle game Limbo was the breakout hit of last year's promotion.
[UPDATE]: Microsoft has since confirmed details of the bundle for GameSpot. A representative said it will launch April 19, and include 160 Microsoft points and a 48-hour trial membership for Xbox Live Gold.
