CROSSBOARD 7 for Kinect

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced it will release CROSSBOARD 7, a new boarding title designed exclusively for Microsoft’s Kinect motion-capture unit for Xbox 360, in November.

Known as Adrenalin Misfits in the US, CROSSBOARD 7 players use the Kinect hardware to control their chosen crossboard-riding monster, as it competes with rival creatures across seven different global locations. Settings include snowy mountains, triple cascades, stormy deserts, and more! As they lean and move to steer their on-screen alter ego, users will feel like they are actually riding a crossboard.

As players perfect their own unique boarding technique, they can take advantage of the Kinect by using their body movements to produce real tricks; riding and gliding in the air and on land just like the pros. With no controllers required crossboarders can play as in-game monsters, original avatars or their favourite Xbox avatar. CROSSBOARD 7 also features a number of contests via one-person challenges or two-person multiplayer competitions, pitting players against their family and friends to see who has the best virtual crossboarding skills. Free 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 earn trick scores as they execute jumps and rail tricks within the Trick Score mode. Other contests include Fly Distance, Balloon Buster, Stadium mini-games, Big Air, Terrain Park, Half pipe and more. Collect and win more than 60 crossboards, each with their own special abilities that will allow users to shave vital seconds from existing record times.

CROSSBOARD 7 will be released for Xbox 360 in November. For more information, please contact Steve Merrett at Voltage PR via steve@voltagepr.com or call 020 7502 4462.
