Not content with inspiring Kinect Rush: A Disney•Pixar Adventure with its past works, Disney•Pixar's next movie Brave will get its own Kinect-powered game too.
Coming this summer, the third-person adventure game isn't Kinect exclusive: sounds to us like the sensor will only be used in an archery spin-off mode, but we've been wrong before. Disney really isn't giving much away with descriptions like this:
Several new opponents created exclusively for the game will challenge the player throughout the experience, culminating with an ultimate boss battle to complete the adventure.
Sounds like every game ever: check. Be Brave (actually, her name is Merida) this summer.
