Microsoft Announces Joy Ride Turbo

By Michelle Balsan, 4 years ago
When you think of the trends going through many series lately, one that will likely come to mind is just how many are adding Kinect support. From Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, to Mass Effect 3, all the way through to yet another edition of Don Bluth's Dragon's Lair, the tendency is to add Kinect functionality.

Leave it to Microsoft to throw us a curve ball and take the Kinect functionality out of title. Revealed exclusively to PlayXBLA, Joy Ride Turbo is an upcoming XBLA title from the makers of Kinect Joy Ride. In the game, you'll be able to traverse the Stunt Park, where you can collect trophies, car parts, and coins to unlock 42 unique vehicles.
