Do this: watch a launch trailer for the beautiful Bastion


11:15 AM on 07.15.2011



Supergiant Games' first title, Bastion, hits Xbox Live Arcade next week, on July 20. It's going to cost 1200 MS Points, and based on what I've seen and played, will be totally worth the price.

If you're unfamiliar with Bastion, this launch trailer that publisher Warner Bros. Interactive just released should get you caught up. "Beautiful, inventive, and absolutely captivating" pretty much sums it up for me right here. What do you think?

Bastion is part of Microsoft's "Summer of Arcade," but also will be coming to PC later this year.
