Fans of classic side-scrolling fighting games like Double Dragon should find this new title appealing. Set for release exclusively on the Xbox 360 platform, Kung Fu High Impact utilizes Microsoft’s new Kinect motion controller.
With the accurate body tracking technology of the Kinect, players will be completely interactive with the onscreen character. Punches, kicks and jumps will transferred into the game in real time. The game will be available November 2011, and we will provide more details as they are released. Let’s leave you with a few words from Lokesh Dhar, Senior Vice President at UTV Ignition Games:
“Kinect for Xbox 360 truly allows developers to push the game-design envelope with completely new gameplay concepts that appeal to a wide variety of players, and we’re elated to work with Black Bean Games and Virtual Air Guitar Company to bring this riotously enjoyable, family-friendly romp to living rooms across the Americas this fall.”

One of our readers JimmyJay asked us if this was a port of Kung Fu Live for the PS3. The development team for that game are involved, but it isn’t a direct port. This quote is from Luisa Bixio, managing director of Leader Spa, the company holding the Black Bean Games publishing label:
“Today it would be impossible to replicate this game as it is on any other platform; we asked Virtual Air Guitar Company to tailor this fantastic concept to Kinect for Xbox 360, trying to achieve something unique. We believe we’ve got it.”
