Come April 3, 2012, a new take in the Star Wars’ gaming franchise will go mainstream, highlighting the “controller-free” environment with the use of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 Kinect.
Both Star Wars fans and Kinect advocates will gain new dimensions in the “Jedi experience” with Kinect Star Wars, unleashing the inner Jedi from players – with no controller involved.
Following up on the Star Wars’ franchise’s reputation for stunning visuals and enhanced graphics, Kinect Star Wars brings iconic characters and alien world to life. The manning of ships and vehicles will surely be new experiences for Kinect Star Wars gamers, as the aspect of physical play will bring “use the force” to more true-to-life undertones.
The soon to be released Kinect Star Wars is the first Star Wars game to come with no controller, and features game-play environments for single or two-players. Force Moves and Lightsaber combat are among its gameplay highlights, and as an Xbox 360 game, the possibility of multi-player modes would already go without saying.
Multi-player competitive, duel and co-op modes are supported by Kinect Star Wars, which draws inspiration from all of the six released Star Wars movies.
With authentic Star Wars environments, creatures and enemies, Kinect Star Wars features Jedi Destiny: Dark Side Rising, Podracing, Galactic Dance Off, Duels of Fate and Rancor Rampage.
A product developed by Lucasarts, the game’s development is made in collaboration with Microsoft’s famed hands-free Kinect controller for the Xbox 360. With a T (Teen) ESRB Content Rating, Kinect Star Wars is one game which can be enjoyed by different ages, offering a truly immersed gaming experience into the Star Wars Universe.
For Kinect players and Star Wars fans, here’s one game to sate your gaming drives.
