Adrenalin Misfits on“Kinect” for Xbox 360

Konami Digital Entertainment will showcase Adrenalin Misfits– a title for the Xbox 360 ® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft that makes use of Microsoft’s”Kinect” for Xbox 360 which brings games and entertainment to life in extraordinary new ways, no controller required. Konami’s European plans for the cross boarding title will be outlined at a later date.

In Adrenalin Misfits, players become cross board-riding monsters that compete with rival creatures across seven different global locations, including snowy mountains, triple cascades, stormy deserts, limestone caves, glacier lands, hollow caves and volcanoes. Via the motion capture technology of“Kinect” for Xbox 360, players will feel like they are actually riding a cross board. As players perfect their own unique boarding technique, they can take advantage of the sensor by using their body movements in order to produce real tricks; sliding and gliding in the air and on land just like the pros. With no controllers required, cross boarders can play as in-game monsters, original Avatars or their favorite Xbox 360 ® Avatar.

Adrenalin Misfits features a number of contests via one-person challenges or two-person multiplayer competitions, pitting gamers against their family and friends to see who has the best virtual cross boarding skills. Race Mode enables gamers to race through the course to defeat an opponent or go solo to beat their personal best time.

Downhill Slalom tests players’ agility as they pass through a number of 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 rails tricks within 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 60 cross boards each with their own special abilities to up the ante. Battling friends and family has never been more fun or interactive.
