fruit ninja Kinect 2

Fruit Ninja creators Halfbrick have announced that Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 will be released for Microsoft's Xbox One console on March 18. It's one of the few new games for the console that will require the use of the Kinect gesture capture hardware.

The game itself is being developed by Canadian-based Hibernum Creations. Halfbrick says:

"It features all the excitement of the original title, plus five new game modes for the entire family to enjoy. Each mode takes place at the Blueberry Moon festival, and is presented by one of the new Fruit Ninja team members – Katsuro, Mari, Han and Nobu. Players can dodge shurikens, hack through a forest of bamboo, and avoid spotlights to become true masters of stealth.

"Brand new multiplayer modes allow up to four players to jump in on the action, with Battle and Party modes providing the perfect proving ground for seasoned competitors. A new progression system is also present, allowing players to earn blades, dojos and belts as challenges are completed."

The game will cost $15 and will launch as a digital download title.
