Square Enix has just announced that they will be breathing new life into the Mini Ninjas franchise with a new title, Mini Ninjas Adventures, which will be available exclusively for Kinect on June 29th and sold through XBLA for 800 Microsoft points. Developed specifically for Kinect by Side-Kick Ltd, Mini Ninjas Adventures lets you step into the tabi boots of Hiro as you swipe, kick and battle your way through 21 levels on a mission to rescue his master and fellow ninjas from the clutches of the evil Samurai Warlord.
Developed from the ground up for Kinect, Side-Kick aims to deliver a title loaded with content and supported by a responsive game engine. Every level will be packed with multiple enemies (including boss battles) and take place across a range of environments. In addition to the gesture-controlled physical combat in the game, players will also be able to manipulate movement, weapon selection, and magical attacks through voice commands. Throw in a customizable character upgrade system and the family-friendly charm that Mini Ninjas is known for, and you have a winning combination. Keep an eye out for Mini Ninjas Adventures at the end of the month.
