Square Enix and developer Side-kick Ltd. are bringing a new entry in the Mini Ninjas franchise to Xbox LIVE Arcade. Mini Ninjas Adventures is a brand new title developed specifically for Kinect due in North America and Europe on June 29 for 800 Microsoft Points.
As Hiro, you will “swipe, kick and battle your way through intense ninja action” to rescue your master and fellow ninja from the evil Samurai Warlord. The game promises 21 levels, a range of boss battles armed with both magical and physical attacks, mini-games, gesture driven combat, a character upgrade system, and an “incredibly responsive” game engine.
”We’re excited to be bringing Mini Ninjas Adventures to Kinect for the first time,” said Sarah Hoeksma, VP Brand, Square Enix Europe. “We’ve created a completely new Xbox Live Arcade game, using the extremely charming Mini Ninjas brand, which we feel delivers fun family gaming to the living room.”
Asaf Sela, founder and creative director of Side-kick, added: “We are thrilled to be working with Square Enix and IO Interactive. Bringing Hiro to life using Kinect gave us an excellent opportunity to use our passion for motion games to create a deep arcade title that is fun for all.”
