It looks like it will be awhile before we can show Darth Vader what's up in Star Wars Kinect. In a conversation with the BBC, Xbox 360 creative director and Kinect evangelist Kudo Tsunoda said that the game is still in the works and will be released at some point during the holiday season...the 2011 holiday season . "We have a Kinect Star Wars game coming out for next holiday," he stated simply, confirming that it's still happening.
This is the first shred of news we've heard about the game since it made its debut at Microsoft's press briefing during E3 2010. And while we still don't if it's on-rails or not, at least the lightsaber play looks like it'll make it into the full release. "I think you could just easily imagine being a Jedi and using Kinect to make you feel you're part of a Star Wars experience," he said," building yourself up into a Jedi."
Among the other things we know about the game? If the demo level shown was, in fact, a real piece of the game as we were led to believe, then look forward to some Stormtrooper hacking, a little bit of Naboo exploration, and a face off against "Mr. No" himself, Lord Vader.
