Child of Eden Release Date Confirmed

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Tetsuya Mizuguchi's Kinect-enabled spiritual successor to http://www.trueachievements.com/game.aspx?gameid=1405 has finally received a confirmed release date. Child of Eden will be released on June 14th, 2011.

The "music-driven synesthesia" shooter can also be played with standard Xbox controllers too. Talking of controllers, the game can take advantage of up to four controllers for another purpose other than aiming and shooting. A rep from developer Q Entertainment confirmed that vibration feedback will be synced across all four controllers to provide tactile feedback in time to the music, in a similar style to Rez HD. The idea is that these controllers are placed in pockets, or up sleeves, to provide the feedback that Mizuguchi has always felt games have been lacking whilst being played with Kinect.

This method of feedback is the new version of the Trance Vibrator that was released with special versions of Rez on the PS2 in Japan. Players held the device, placed it in a pocket, or sat on it whilst playing the game, and the device would vibrate in time to the music. When Rez HD appeared on the Xbox 360 marketplace, the game had been upgraded to allow three additional controllers to add the tactile feedback, instead of needing an extra device.

Here are some previously released screenshots showing you exactly what to expect from the game:
