The lights are on
The iOS game Fruit Ninja exploded onto the casual scene some time ago, but now developer Halfbrick is bringing its wild fruit slicer to Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade.
As fruit flies up on screen, players swipe at the air to cut them in half, being careful to avoid bombs that will destroy their score. Halfbrick has added new fruits like pomegranates that players will have to slice multiple times. Fruit Ninja Kinect features a new 2-player mode that lets players either work together to rack up a high score or play in competitive matches against each other. Leaderboards will encourage friends to battle each other for the top spot.
This juicy Kinect only downloadable title is headed to Xbox Live sometime this summer.

How much? I love the iphone app and it seems like it would be more fun using your body. I mean sure slicing food up in real life is awesome, but the paying for the fruit gets expensive and then you have to clean up and buy a knife... though you do get to eat the real fruit
It's a cool game play on iPhone and addictive o.O
Any notes on how this plays with the Kinect input lag?
To me, Fruit Ninja doesn't seem like the kind of game that fits on a console. It's fun to play on the iPhone or iPad for a few minutes, but a full game on Xbox (even if it is a Live title) seems like a big risk.
Sounds like a sweet d/l title implementing Kinect.
