New Kinect Fighter Announced, Fighters Uncaged

As the Kinect line-up rolls out, I think to myself “Shit. I’m going to have to review these games.” Another one of “these games” was announced, this time called Fighters Uncaged! Woohoo.

“Today, Ubisoft®announced Fighters Uncaged, a new fighting game that will be available worldwide in November 2010 exclusively for KinectTM on Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Developed by AMA Studios, Fighters Uncaged will deliver players the excitement of real fighting competitions, in addition to teaching players mixed martial arts techniques.

“Fighters Uncaged is the first motion fighting game for Kinect, dedicated to a core audience,” said Caroline Stevens, EMEA director of marketing at Ubisoft. “Fighters Uncaged requires players to get out of their seat to engage in a controller-free full-body combat game and experience the authentic fighting style of Thai boxing.”

Leveraging the Kinect technology, Fighters Uncaged delivers players an immersive total-body combat experience. Players will be able to create 70 different strikes inspired by martial arts and compete in 21 different fighting environments such as rooftops, dark alleys, gritty city docks and abandoned church. Included are diverse opponents with unique fighting styles, devastating combos with voice-activated super strikes, opportunities to upgrade your character by unlocking new skills and a jump-in multiplayer feature to take your enemies down with your friends.”

This actually doesn’t sound like a game whatsoever, it sounds like a tech demo. They announced nothing but 21 different fighting environments and 70 combos though the game is only going to be out in three months. Either it’s a tech demo, Xbox Live Arcade-type Kinect game or going to be pushed back to 2011. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the latter.

Fighters Uncaged is currently slated to be released this November.
