Longtime freeware darling Spelunky was teased as coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade in an enhanced edition a while back, but even with the occasional trailer teasing at more and more features the one bit of information that eluded us was was a solid release date. Well, as of yesterday that’s changed, and do you know what makes the good news even better? It’s next week.
Revealed with an absolute minimum of fanfare on Major Nelson‘s latest breakdown of upcoming Xbox LIVE content, the roguelike platformer will be available on XBLA on July 4. Veterans of the freeware version should still take notice, as added 4-player multiplayer modes and revamped art and music assets should make this new enough to be worth the 1200 MS Point asking price.
