Question: What links Microsoft's Kinect sensor device and the popular App game, Doodle Jump?

Answer: Recently, it has been revealed that both have surpassed the milestone of 10 million unit sales!

The developer behind Doodle Jump, Lima Sky, has been quick to ensure that strong sales are not the only common factor between said gaming stalwarts. They have announced ambitious plans to bring a port of the title to the Xbox Live Arcade with the added bonus of Kinect compatibility!

Here's a glimpse of what the game will look like, courtesy of five new screenshots:

Igor Pusenjak, founder of Lima Sky, had the following to say about the game's success and the plan for the future:

After such incredible first two years, it is safe to say Doodle Jump has exceeded even our wildest imaginations... We are looking forward to bringing even more amazing content to millions of Doodle Jump fans around the world
This latest announcement follows the similar, yet somewhat surprising news that another upcoming XBLA title, The Gunstringer, will be Kinect-enabled. Given these recent developments, it looks likely that Kinect-compatible Arcade games will become common place sooner rather than later.

As yet, no release period/date or pricing details have been announced for Doodle Jump.
