Konami's Kinect Titles Dated

By DavieMarshall, 6 years ago
Konami have announced that two of their three planned Kinect titles will be available from the launch date of Microsoft's new hardware. DanceEvolution and CROSSBOARD 7 will be the titles selected to launch November 10th, whilst Sports Island Freedom will retail slightly later on November 25th.

DanceEvolution is fairly self explanatory requiring users to match their movements to the guide shown on screen, whilst CROSSBOARD 7 puts the player in control of a character barrelling down a hazardous course. The final Konami title is easy enough to take a guess at too thanks to the name. The title will feature several sports for gamers to compete in, where each features a 'bespoke' control system to add diversity to the gameplay. The events will incorporate, 'Tennis, Boxing, Archery, Paint Ball, Beach Volleyball, Dodge Ball, Kendo, Mogul Skiing, Snowboard Cross and Figure Skating'.

Martin Schnieder, head of Marketing and PR for the European division of Konami stated:

These products combine the fun of playing games with the new interactivity of Kinect, and offer a new experience. I hope that everyone interested in gaming and technology embraces this new way to enjoy games
