Starting April 18th Xbox Live Arcade will launch one hot new game every week, right through May 9th.  Games include the Xbox 360 edition of the PC indie sensation Minecraft, plus a new Fable game that uses a multiplayer Hack 'n' slash gameplay.  The month-long event is being touted as XBLA “Arcade NEXT” and also includes a new Trials game plus the Celtic slaughterfest Bloodforge.

Trials Evolution arrives April 18th for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15) and is the continuation of Trials HD.  It includes the option to build your own track and download tracks made by other players.

Bloodforge comes out April 25th for 800 Microsoft Points ($10) and uses Celtic mythology to tell the blood-soaked tale of a warrior named Crom.  Check out our preview.

Fable Heroes hits on May 2nd for 800 Microsoft Points and uses the Fable setting for four-player hack 'n' slash.  Playing it will also unlock bonuses for the upcoming Kinect title, Fable:  The Journey.

Finally, the Xbox 360 Edition of Minecraft arrives on May 9th for a whopping 1600 Microsoft Points (Twenty dollars)!  Despite several knock-offs, this is the first console version of the game, and it includes features like split-screen multiplayer and Xbox Live multiplayer.
