While we normally don’t cover gaming console-related news, this piece of information we were sent couldn’t be rejected. The same Fruit Ninja game that we all know and love is set to move onto the next generation with the release of Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 for the Xbox One. Developed by Hibernum Creations out of Montreal, Canada, Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 will launch for Xbox One on March 18th, 2015. The game will feature five new game modes, four-person multiplayer, a new progression system, and an expanded lineup of characters as well.
Each game 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 must dodge shurikens, slice through a forest of bamboo, and avoid spotlights to become the true masters of the game. The brand new multiplayer modes allow up to four players to compete, while a new progression system allows players to earn blades, dojos and belts as challenges are completed.
For those interested, Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 will sell for $15 USD on the Xbox Games Store. As of now though this is all the information available, however, we’ll keep you updated if anything new comes our way.
