Frenzied Fruit-Cutting Action Now Available for Download on Kinect for Xbox 360.
BRISBANE, Australia - August 10, 2011 - It’s time to show off your ninja skills, as Fruit Ninja Kinect is now available for download via Xbox LIVE® Arcade. Fruit Ninja Kinect pairs the frenzied fruit slashing action from the hit mobile game with the motion-controls of the Kinect™ for Xbox® 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, allowing players to swing their arms, jump and high kick to cut through an endless cascade of flying fruits while trying to avoid dangerous bombs. With single and two-player modes, friends can now battle each other or team up to slice fruit together.
“Fruit Ninja Kinect is perfect for parties, family game nights or people looking for an excuse to accidentally-on-purpose karate-chop their friends,” said Phil Larsen, chief marketing officer of Halfbrick.
Following the simple yet addictive mechanics that made Fruit Ninja such a breakout success on mobile devices, Fruit Ninja Kinect stays true to the spirit of the beloved title while expanding players’ experience with new gameplay modes and unlockable content.
“Fruit Ninja Kinect is the most fun I’ve ever had with a Kinect game,” said Russ Frushtick, Games & Tech Editor for MTV News.
“Without a doubt, this is the Kinect game you’ll be busting out at parties (as well as when you’re all alone) for the foreseeable future,” said Winda Benedetti, “Citizen Gamer” columnist for MSNBC.com
“This is a great game and at 800 Microsoft Points ($10) you’re going to need to pick it up if you have a Kinect, if only so I have more people to mock (or be mocked by),” said Brian Crecente, editor-in-chief of Kotaku.com
There are three single player modes: compete for the highest score while avoiding bombs in Classic Mode, serenely slash through 90 seconds of Zen Mode, or throw intense power-ups into the mayhem with Arcade Mode. Fruit Ninja Kinect also adds local multiplayer so Fruit Ninjas can slice side-by-side in pursuit of unlockable blades, backgrounds, avatar shadows and Achievements that only the quickest ninjas will conquer. True masters of fruit ninjutsu searching the lands for a worthy opponent can climb the online leaderboards, but only ninjas able to decimate the mysterious pomegranate — a rare fruit that players can attack furiously in bullet-time — will claim the highest scores.
With over 40 million downloads worldwide on mobile devices and top sales chart rankings in more than 60 countries, Fruit Ninja is already an international sensation, and the Kinect version adds a whole new dimension to the frenzy.
Fruit Ninja Kinect is rated “E for everyone” by the ESRB and is now available for download through Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 MS Points or $10.
