Star Wars Kinect release date is 3 April 2012

Hands-free use of the Force coming in just under two months

Motion-sensing game Star Wars: Kinect will be released on April the 3rd, Microsoft announced today. Alongside it will be an R2-D2 and C-3PO-themed Xbox console, which will retail for a jaw-dropping £349.99. The game also features a ‘dance mode’ – something we’re slightly less excited about. The accompanying press release for this news uses the words ‘family friendly’, which again seems geared towards shooting down our enthusiasm. We’ll be reviewing Star Wars: Kinect in a coming issue of SciFiNow.
