It's quite the video game news weekend here at TFN! While we still don't have a release date for the much delayed Kinect Star Wars, there are signs that we are getting closer, such as the newly released rating from the Entertainment Software Ratings Board. The game has been given a "Teen" rating due to some mild language, suggestive themes and violence. The rating isn't the surprising piece of news here. That comes from the ESRB game description:
"In this action game, based on the Star Wars universe, players use their body movements to perform activities that include dance tournaments, podracing, and Jedi duels. In some mini-games, players use light sabers and telekinetic powers to battle fantastical creatures (e.g., aliens and robots) in melee-style combat; enemies collapse to the ground when killed. In one sequence, players assume a first-person perspective to shoot down alien spaceships—these frenetic battles are accompanied by laser fire and large explosions. Another sequence allows players to control a giant creature that rampages through city streets to attack civilians; cries of pain and crunching sounds can be heard as humanoid characters are thrown, stomped on, and eaten. In the dancing mini-game, some female characters perform suggestive moves (e.g., gyrating their hips/buttocks) and wear revealing outfits (partially exposed cleavage/buttocks). The words “damn” and “hell” can be heard in the dialogue."
Yep, you read that right. Kinect Star Wars has a dancing mini-game! We'll keep you posted as we learn more. In the meantime, start practicing your moves!
