Microsoft has unveiled the Summer of Arcade lineup for 2011.

Now in its fourth year, the promotion highlights some of the most anticipated Xbox Live Arcade releases of the year.

Starting in July, Toy Soldiers: Cold War will be the follow-up to Xbox Live release Toy Soldiers, and sees the strategy title add co-op and a survival mode.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is a side-scrolling exploration game set on alien worlds, and features power-ups, swarms of enemies and huge boss battles.

Kinect Fruit Ninja is a motion-controlled version of the iPhone best seller, requiring players to wave their arms to slice flying fruit.

Bastion is an action role-playing game featuring a reactive narrator that changes the story based on your actions, and features hand-painted visuals and the ability to replay the game in a New Game Plus option.

Finally, From Dust will be the new game from Another World creator Eric Chahi, where players assume the role of a god who must control the elements to protect a tribe.

Previous Summer of Arcade releases included Limbo, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and Trials HD.

Promotion on Summer of Arcade has seen both Limbo and Trials HD become Xbox Live best sellers in recent years.
