Microsoft announced today that their popular Kinect launch title, Kinectimals
, will be getting an expansion titled Kinectimals Now with Bears!
The title will allow you to choose from five different types of bears- Black Bear, Grizzly Bear, Cinnamon Bear, Glacier Bear or Polar Bear- in addition to the five types of cat that are already included in Kinectimals
. You can also unlock an additional 10 animals "during the course of your journeys to solve the Legend of Felis Aurum and the Fiddler's Quest". Another addition is a new guide named Bumblina, who will guide you as you explore the coast of Lemuria.
Of course, no animal-based game of the Kinectimals
nature would be complete without the ability to teach your pet a variety of tricks. Your bear can learn to do everything from playing fetch to juggling. You can also customize your pet and decorate your home with the hundreds of different treasures and toys you'll find throughout the game.Kinectimals Now with Bears!
will be available in two forms. For those of you who have yet to try Kinectimals
, you can buy the full retail release including the original cats and the new bears for $49.99. Those of you who already have Kinectimals
can pick up the "Bear Island" expansion through Xbox LIVE for $14.99. Both the retail disc and the expansion will be available this fall.
