Xbox Live Arcade Next promotion starts April 18, brings Minecraft, Trials Evolution and more

XBLA Arcade Next

Microsoft has announced its latest Xbox Live Arcade promotion for the spring and it is set to deliver some big name titles.

The 4-game Arcade Next promotion will kick off on April 18 with a follow-up in the popular motocross obstacle series with Trials Evolution. Next up is third-person action game Bloodforge, followed by a multiplayer take on Fable in Fable Heroes. And finally, Minecraft is actually hitting Xbox as promised at last year’s E3 as the last Arcade Next title on May 9th.

Here’s the lineup:

  • April 18: Trials Evolution (1200 MSP)
  • April 25: Bloodforge (1200 MSP)
  • May 2: Fable Heroes (800 MSP)
  • May 9: Minecraft (1600 MSP)

Some may balk at the lofty price of Minecraft, but it is still cheaper than its PC counterpart ($26.95). Also, the official video (see below) touts the titles as all offering 400 achievement points as announced last week.
