TGS 2010 gives hopes of core Kintect games

The Tokyo game show is well under way in Japan and while much of the world slept, Microsoft revealed a few new titles that would be coming to their motion sensing platform. For those gamers waiting for more core titles to appear on Kinect before plunging in to a purchase, TGS provided a handful of interesting prospects, although they will be unlikely to appear on the system until well into 2011.

From Sega comes a horror title named Rise of Nightmares, which had a lot of screaming. Capcom seem to have left the massive 40-odd button twin-stick controller behind with a Kinect version of Steel Battalion, subtitled Heavy Armor. The Panza Dragoon IP made a re-emergence in the form of Project Draco, giving players the chance to control a massive fire-breathing critter. Another more cartoon based horror game is on its way from Parappa the Rapper creator Masaya Matsuura. And to wrap things up, the quirky developer Suda (previous titles Killer 7 and No More Heroes) announced a Kinect project called Codename D, apparently an action game sans guns and swords.

If the details seem a little bit on the thin side it’s because presently, all these titles are little more than vapourware; only scraps of information on the games was provided, consisting of title screens and CGI intros. Still, it gives a little bit of hope that something other than mini-games are heading to the Kinect hardware.

Marty Greenwell

Marty has been gaming since the heady years of the ZX-81 and still owns most of the gaming systems purchased since those days, including the Atari 2600, ZX Spectrum, SNES, Jaguar, Dreamcast and GameCube. Being a collection junkie (or more accurately, hoarder), he buys more games than he can possibly play, far too many of which are still sealed in their packaging. Marty favours RPGs and Driving games when it comes to genres, and is possibly a little bit too addicted to Disgaea. When not gaming he’s out frightening OAPs on his motorcycle, clad in black leather.
