'Fruit Ninja Kinect 2' Release Date Announced: Party Game Coming To Xbox One In March [VIDEO]
The chances are good that you have a Kinect attached to your Xbox One just sitting around not doing much. Developer Halfbrick Studios and Hibernum are here to help make that decision worthwhile with their upcoming Fruit Ninja Kinect 2.
The game is due out on March 18 and will bring five new game modes, four-person multiplayer, a new progression system, and an expanded line-up of characters to the party game series. Players can take on the roles of new ninja Katsuro, Mari, Han and Nobu as they Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge through the Blueberry festival - and, presumably, slice up some fruit.
There are new four play game modes, such as Battle and Party, which will test the mettle of seasoned pros and newcomers alike. A new progression system is also present, allowing players to earn blades, dojos and belts as challenges are completed.
"This is the most satisfying, complete, and accessible party game ever created," said Shainiel Deo, chief executive at Halfbrick Studios. "The new Kinect sensor makes a world of difference, and Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 has been built from the ground up to take full advantage of the latest hardware."
"Fruit Ninja is our baby - it's what got us here today and we continue to maintain an incredibly high quality bar," Deo added. "Hibernum have exceeded our expectations every step of the way, and we think fans will get a huge kick out of the finished product."
Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 is out exclusively for Xbox One and will be priced at $14.99.
