Dust: An Elysian Tail developer Dean Dodrill revealed at popular gaming forum NeoGAF that his stylish side-scrolling action-RPG Dust: An Elysian Tale is targeted for an Xbox Live Arcade release in 2012.

An Elysian Tail took the grand $40,000 prize in 2009's Dream.Build.Play competition, winning acclaim for its lush visual style and fluid animation. Little has been announced regarding the title over the last year, though updates at Dust's official site assure that development is "coming along great."

Dodrill hopes to have the game completed in the first half of 2012, and pledges to reveal further gameplay details in the months leading up to its release.
