Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 slashes its way onto the Xbox One

Much like the original Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 brings the action of the hit mobile game to the Xbox, but with the added twist that players use their bodies to hack and slash at the fruit instead of their fingers. Included in this release is all of the content of the original game, along with five new game modes and a new set of characters. From the game's description:

"The whole family can explore the Blueberry Moon festival, taking part in colorful challenges from the new Fruit Ninja team - Katsuro, Mari, Han and Nobu. Each character hosts a unique game at the festival, where players can dodge speedy shurikens, hack through a forest of bamboo and become a stealth master – all while slicing fruit! Online leaderboards track the greatest players among your friends, and classic characters Sensei, Gutsu and Truffles will grant you awesome new upgrades as you continue your journey at the festival."

In addition, the game's new multiplayer modes allow up to four players to compete against one another by hacking and slashing their way through new game types and mini-games.

If you'd like to check the game out for yourself, you can snag it from the Xbox Store now for a cool $15 from the link below.

  • LOL
  • The puns add nothing.
  • Honeydew you realize they won't bananas? :-p
  • My kids are going to love this.
  • When in India?
  • LOL. Cool.
  • HAHAHAHAHAHA. nice one.
  • This game is extremely fun!
  • Four-player Kinect game = instant purchase. However, I still say Microsoft and Halfbrick should've ran a promotion where, if you pre-purchased Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 on Xbox One you would get Fruit Ninja on Windows Phone for free. Would've been a nice way to cross-promote both of their platforms.
  • They should have given a free banana away for every purchase.
  • We have no reason to think, yet, that this won't be the case.
  • Nice!! Just downloaded... but I'm headed to work, so I won't get to play yet.
