Just read this over at the Verge...

Shortly before publication, Spelunky entered Microsoft's final certification process. Should it be approved, it could see release as soon as this summer, though no official date has been scheduled.

The freeware version of this game on PC is probably my favorite indie game of all time. Hopefully everything that was good with the original version carries over and is better on this release.

Also surprise Summer of Arcade Release!?!?!

Probably. Check this link, if it doesn't lead to anything then it might not come out in your country, but it most likely will.

@Dredlockz: It will be, Major Nelson would have specified if it was only being released in a certain region, and that almost never happens.

@mscupcakes: Thanks.

It kinda sucks because its the 4th here already, but it doesn't seem to be out yet. Guess maybe tomorrow.

@Timing: Hey, you're right.

It's not in the latest releases, but I found it by searching for it by name.

Thanks!
