Fruit Ninja Kinect Releasing For Xbox 360 This Wednesday

Great news for fruit slicing n’ dicing fans from all over the globe: Fruit Ninja is coming to the Xbox 360 with Kinect integration this Wednesday.

Fruit Ninja is a video game in which players slice fruits by swiping on their device’s touch screen. Developed by Halfbrick, the game is available for a variety of platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, Bada OS and Nokia’s Symbian. It is one of the most popular video games in the portable gaming market having seen more than 20 million total downloads as of March, 2011.
Announced at E3 2011, Fruit Ninja’s first appearance on Microsoft’s Xbox 360 is all set for a release on Wednesday, August 10th. It is titled Fruit Ninja Kinect and will, as you can tell from the title, have deep integration with Microsoft’s motion sensing Kinect device. All the slicing action which was previously limited to input from a finger will now take input from the entire hand/arm of the players; this will not only make Fruit Ninja a lot more fun but also make it a whole lot more tiring than it ever was (which is not a bad thing, really!).
