Morphin' it up.

Namco Bandai have today confirmed that they'll be releasing Power Rangers Super Samurai for Kinect towards the end of 2012.

Oh Good, NBA Baller Beats Does Come With a Basketball

We were starting to worry

Majesco's blend of sport and music, NBA Baller Beats, asks you to bounce an actual basketball. Not got one handy? That's cool, you get one in the box. NBA stalwarts Spalding will provide a replica ball with every game, while Panini has signed up to allow its trading cards to appear in-game. Ball-bouncing, card-trading,...

At Last, Bash Some Heads with Kung Fu High Impact

Kick some tail, too

It might not be quite the same as the kung fu game pictured in the early Kinect trailers, but Kung Fu High Impact is the closest we're going to get.

Guess What Kinectimals With Bears! Contains

Go on. Have a guess.

Kinectimals is about cats. Cats are not bears. What would Kinectimals be called if it had bears in it? Kinectimals with Bears! of course. The expanded line-up of cuddly characters will head to retail later this year, but considering the bears aren't yet available as DLC we expect the usual outcry from gamers who've bought every...
