Fez Has a Release Date: April (Friday) 13th

#1 Edited by mracoon (4971 posts) -

After seemingly being in development forever, known racist Phil Fish's platformer finally has a release date: April 13th.  It'll cost 800 MP.
 
The announcement image from Polytron's website may give you an epileptic fit.

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to finally being able to play the game. The concept is cool and the art style looks great so in a few weeks we'll be able to see if it's any good.
 
Also this the first XBLA release I can think of that is being released on a Friday. I don't whether that's a one off for this game or a change in the usual XBLA release day (Wednesday).

Nice to see a game that's not 1200MSPs.

besides the art style it really just looks like another indie platformer

Nice. Hopefully that rumor about SkullGirls coming out next week is true. Could be a great month for downloadables.

Turns out The Simpsons Arcade game had a Friday release too. Weird that MS would have different release days for XBLA games.

Maybe they're just testing the waters. Seeing if arcade games released on Friday sell more on the first day than if they were released on Tuesday.

Birthday release, I guess it's fate.

Gotta buy it now.

@jakob187: What makes you be so definite about it? I really hope you are right.

I hope no Japanese devs play this game, they would probably commit seppuku when they realize none of their games will ever live up to this masterpiece.

Only 800 MS points? Neat!

Epilepsy achieved! I'll be waiting expectantly to see what people have to say on the game. Hopefully it's as good as the journalists have said it is.

800 points? AT LAST

So many people want to take Phil Fish down a peg, this game is going to have to be amazing to stop some of them putting the boot in.

@alternate: I think even if this game was infallible someone would say something snarky even if the GDC shenanigans didn't happen. Damn internet.

#19 Posted by xyzygy (9981 posts) -

YES. This game is a must have!

Awesome to hear. Now I wait and hope for a PC version. This may unlikely happen but c'mon Phil!
