Don't look now
Microsoft's Haunt was one of the earlier titles announced for Kinect, but we still don't know a huge amount about it. Not to worry though, as next week we'll get to try it for ourselves.
Microsoft Studios has revealed an 18th January release date for the Xbox Live Arcade title, with an 800 Microsoft Points price tag to boot.
Quite apart from the super-gory Rise of Nightmares, Haunt looks more like a playable version of Monster House, with non-threatening ghouls and ghosts populating its haunted house.
We'll have a full review for you not long after the game's release, of course.
Welcome to Benjy's Mansion - a spooky haunted house where you are the first visitor for a generation! Haunt leverages the power of Kinect to enable you to freely explore the house using just your body as the controller - you'll need to stay on your toes in order to outsmart the mansion's host of fiendish ghosts and unravel the sinister secrets that shroud the mansion in mystery!
