Fez Confirmed For 2010 Xbox Live Arcade Release

Polytron says so.

With a friendly graphic (seen below) and a headline screaming FEZ IS COMING TO XBOX LIVE ARCADE EARLY 2010, Polytron has finally confirmed release details for its upcoming puzzle/platformer/indie darling thing.

In the game, a little guy named Gomez will wear a fez and move between 2D and 3D for the purposes of puzzle solving. It won an Excellence In Visual Art award back at the 2008 Independent Games Festival and has been straight blowin' up ever since.

The 2010 date represents a bit of a delay, as it had been previously listed as a 2009 release.

Even though the game visually looks like a Cave Story ripoff, I'm really glad it's coming to XBLA.  Looking forward to it.

There has been some gameplay footage so far, guys.

AWESOME!

I've been jonesing for this game since it was first showed off in early development at IGF years ago.
I love how XBLA, PSN and to a lesser degree WiiWare are giving these kinds of game a chance to shine

Over to start being psyched about Owlboy then.

DISAPPOINTED! Thought it meant the improbable Persona 4 FES happened. Guess it looks fine though.

I'm not too excited for this game, but I would be excited if I could wear a fez on my avatar.

FEZ and yellow color made me think of Persona 4 FEZ, although the Zero Punctuation reference was great ^^

I'm from the future. Fez doesn't release until 2012. That's all I'll say about the future.

Yeah, I believe it is for now. I wouldn't be surprised if it does pop up on Steam/PSN/etc. eventually, though.

It turns out 2012 is the key year, not 2010. Fez is being released, Persona 3 FES is being re-released digitally, and yes, Persona 4 The Golden is coming.
