KONAMI

 

KONAMI today announced new assets for Adrenalin Misfits on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. The original IP is one of the first KONAMI titles to utilize Microsoft's Kinect™ for Xbox 360  which brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways, requiring no controllers and gets players one-step closer to the realism and excitement of real world crossboarding.

In the new screens released today, players will get a detailed look at the playable characters as well as some of the racing environments that they will be crossboard battling in. Additionally, a new trailer is available with electrifying gameplay highlighting some of the exciting combos, crazy environments and specialty maneuvers players can perform when battling to the bottom!

Adrenalin Misfits features numerous contests that can be either one-person challenges or two-person multiplayer competitions, pitting gamers against their family and friends to see who has the best virtual crossboarding skills. Crossboarding is a crazy combination of snowboarding and wakeboarding allowing players the ability to fly and slide on land, sea and air. Free Mode enables gamers to race through the course to defeat an opponent or solo to beat their personal best time, while Downhill Slalom tests player's agility as they pass through several gates on the course to beat their opponent or get the fastest time. Players will also earn a Trick Score as they execute jumps, and rail tricks throughout each race. Other contests include Fly Distance, Balloon Buster, Stadium mini-games, Big Air, Terrain Park, Half Pipe and more. Collect and win more than 50 crossboards each with their own special abilities to up the ante and become one of seven amazing characters.  Battling friends and family has never been more fun or interactive.
