Kinect Star Wars lands in April
The game and console were originally part of Microsoft’s Christmas 2011 line-up until the game was held back in order to reach it’s “full potential.” As far as pricing goes the game will come with an RRP of £39.99 and the R2D2 styled console will come in at £349.99 – for that you get the limited edition 320GB Xbox 360, white Kinect, a copy of Kinect Star Wars and Kinect Adventures.
They’ve also announced a few new modes – including a dancing game, yes you read that correctly.
Within the Jedi Destiny mode you’ll encounter:
- Space battles: As you travel the Galaxy to face an evil that threatens to undermine the fabric of the Republic, you’ll engage with forces of the Empire in intense space battles
- Speeder Bikes and Landspeeders: Pilot iconic Speeder Bikes and Landspeeders on your epic journey
- New duels: Battle opponents like Count Dooku and Darth Vader on your journey to become a Jedi
As well as the following modes:
- New Duels of Fate mode, a battle-by-battle experience to sharpen your Jedi skills against the Dark Side.
- New Galactic Dance Off mode loaded with Star Wars-themed pop tunes where those still honing their Jedi skills can take a break to battle Darth Vader on the dance floor or bust a move “Solo style.”
Dancing mode aside, Kinect Star Wars is looking to be a nice little package for Star Wars fans – although, they should have released it on May the 4th.
