Splosion Man on XBLA tomorrow

Summer of Arcade rejigged.

Microsoft has reminded us that following a Summer of Arcade switcheroo, it's Splosion Man that's due out on Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow, 22nd July.

It will cost 800 Microsoft Points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 9.60), and stars a man who blows himself up to conquer 50 single-player levels and 50 multiplayer ones. Check out the gamepage for more, including a trailer.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-shelled, which had been due out tomorrow, will now be released on 5th August instead.

Elsewhere in the Summer of Arcade, there's Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on 29th July, Trials HD on 12th August (hubba) and Shadow Complex on 19th August (hubba hubba hubba). We would have brought you hands-on impressions of the latter by now, but our debug Xbox 360 has red-ringed. Boo.

Turtles, MvC2, Trials HD and Shadow Complex will also cost 1200 Microsoft Points, by the way, which is GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40 in old money.

Look out for our review of Splosion Man as soon as possible.
