After years of potential release dates, project setbacks, and a starring role in Indie Game: The Movie, Phil Fish announced the release date for his long-awaited game, Fez, last night on the Polytron website.

Fez will go live on XBLA on Friday, April 13th. The game will cost 800 MS points (10.00). You would think developers would go out of their way to avoid releasing their game on a day associated with bad luck, but clearly Mr. Fish feels like he doesn't need it.

After literally years of good press building excitement for the game, I have a feeling he's not going to either.
