Kinect has seen a unique release cycle since it hit the consumer market last November. It debuted with 15 games available on day one. Early adopters spent their first days with Kinect playing these launch titles, which varied from fitness and sports to dancing and mini-games. From there, the Kinect releases slowed to almost a complete halt earlier this year. Microsoft's lull in support of their new peripheral upset owners who were expecting a more robust selection of motion gaming. Now, Microsoft aims to appease those owners and draw in new Kinect gamers too.
Their E3 keynote highlighted an abundance of new Kinect games aimed to attract the core gamers that are still skeptical of Kinect and motion gaming as a whole. One of those games is Sega's new first-person survival horror, Rise of Nightmares
While details of the plot are still sparse, Sega and Microsoft both promise to introduce a true horror gaming experience for the Kinect. The jury is still out on whether or not the game can provide true scares similar to the fright-inducing Dead Space
series. But one thing is for sure, Rise of Nightmares
has no shortage of blood and gore. Check out the 14 new screenshots below.Rise of Nightmares
creeps its way onto Kinect and Xbox 360 in the US on September 6th, and in the UK on September 9th.
