Expect Lots of Kinect Star Wars at E3 2011

Event invite drops hints
Last year we caught the briefest of glimpses of Kinect Star Wars, but this year it looks likely we'll see much more of the upcoming sensor lightsaber fest, as it features heavily on Microsoft's E3 2011 invite.
The image, posted by Kotaku, name drops Luke Skywalker and features a lightsaber icon too, pointing to more motion-controlled Jedi vs. Sith action. Last year's rendered demo piqued the interest but this year the title will be playable, hopefully justifying its reputation as one of the most anticipated Kinect titles.
Other Kinect-relevant icons include a car from Forza Motorsport 4 and a sensor itself, but we're slightly intrigued by the inclusion of a purple lightning bolt: purple being Kinect's 'official' colour and the lightning bolt rather resembling Harry Potter's famous scar. We recently reported that EA is ditching Kinect support for the next Harry Potter video game, but perhaps EA and Microsoft have surprises up their wizards' sleeves.
We'll find out at Microsoft's E3 2011 press conference on Monday 6th June, which we'll be covering here live.
