    Microsoft set aside the bulk of its presentation at the Tokyo Game Show to announce several new Kinect titles. Four brand-new titles were shown, all slated for release in 2011.

    The first game shown was Haunt, a first-person perspective horror game with a cartoony art style. Players will use a flashlight to point at objects as they explore what looked like a haunted mansion. The game is being developed by famed Parappa the Rappa creator Masaya Matsuura.

    Up next was Project Draco, by Phantom Dust creator Yukio Futatsugi. His studio, Grounding Inc., are developing a game that includes dragons and flight. Not much else was revealed about the game except a teaser trailer.

    Later in the presentation, Suda 51 of Grasshopper Manufacture took the stage to announce his new game, Codename D. He described the game as "hardcore, punky, and casual," and it will not be using guns or swords. This is being made for the hardcore gamer, Suda said. The live-action trailer revealed few details about the gameplay, only showing men dancing around at a carnival-like setting wearing animals masks.

    Microsoft also showed off a fourth Kinect title, Dr Kawashima's Body and Brain Exercises from Namco Bandai, but that game was revealed last week. It will launch in North America and Europe next year.

    Tetsuya Mizuguchi later took the stage to reveal a new level from Child of Eden called "Beauty." He said Child of Eden won't make the launch of Kinect this November, but added it's coming next year and promises to work very hard until Child of Eden is ready to be played.

    SEGA later announced Rise of Nightmares. This horror title is aimed at the hardcore audience. The teaser trailer shown contained screaming girls and scary, flashing images.

    Last but not least, Capcom announced Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, a revival of the classic game from the original Xbox. Infamously known for its large controller, this new title will use Kinect motion controls. [/p]

    In my opinion, these are the best games so far.

    EDIT: Shoot, title should say 4 new games, not 5. Could a mod please change that for me?

    Let's see how long it will take for SEGA to make a Sonic game based on Kinect itself.

    Mind = Blown. One of the top selling games for the DS is having a port (Or is it like a sequel or spin-off?) come to the 360...For Kinect...

    Anyway, that one called Haunt sounds pretty cool. I might not get a Kinect, unless more good, quality titles are announced...It's not worth the $150 yet, and it might never be.

    I'm pretty sure it's not a port. Just the same guy behind it.

    Wait until you try this thing in your home before you get excited about anything related to Kinect.

    All I can say is.. RESULTS MAY VARY

    That... confounded... overused... ridiculously-meaningless... sales-technique-and-poser-reserved... obnoxious word! [​IMG]

    Ontopic: Goodness! Suda 51? Parappa the Rapper developer? Grounding Inc.? Man, there are some formidable developers trying their hand at Kinect! [​IMG]

    Side Note: That darned Dr. Kawashima. He teams up with Nintendo to make two great Brain Age games, then ditches them to rake in the cash with cruddy ol' Namco Bandai. [​IMG]
