Shippin' Out August 7-13: Fruit Ninja Kinect

Very light new release schedule led by Halfbrick's downloadable Xbox 360 game on Wednesday; Spy Kids: All the Time in the World hits DS Tuesday.

The dog days of summer are in full swing this week, as only a very small handful of games make their way to release.

Fruit Ninja Kinect cuts up XBLA this Wednesday.

Leading the pack is Fruit Ninja Kinect, which will be released this Wednesday on Xbox Live. A motion-control-enabled version of the popular title for mobile platforms, Halfbrick's latest version of Fruit Ninja challenges players to slice up airborne produce while avoiding bombs.

Also out this week is the film tie-in game Spy Kids: All the Time in the World for the DS. Being released this Tuesday, ahead of Spy Kids: All the Time in the World 4D in theaters, the game has players controlling the new adolescent operatives in a platforming adventure.

For further details on the week's games, visit GameSpot's New Releases page. The full list of downloadable games on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace, and the Wii Shop Channel will be revealed later this week. Release dates are based on retailer listings and are subject to change.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 9
Puzzler World 2--DS--Ubisoft
Spy Kids: All the Time in the World--DS--Majesco Games

So.. is Fruit Ninja Kinect an Xbox exclusive? It's called "Fruit Ninja Kinect", and doesn't use the same engine as the handheld versions... you know, like how Ninja Gaiden Sigma (ps3) was considered exclusive over Ninja Gaiden on the xbox...

You know what would look great on this list? Arkham City. But nooooo, 'they' have to jam that into the same six week window with BF3, Uncharted 3 and AC:Revelations and a couple other awesome things (Skyrim) that I can't be bothered to learn the release dates of cause there's no way I can play them all. But soon there will be whining about how sales are down.

In the past this has always been the week that Madden comes out, and publishers have always left it alone knowing that Madden would get all the focus. EA moves it down a few weeks and thus you have a huge gaping hole in the release calender. I'm glad this August is such a weak schedule because September through early December will be madness

Woot! First to comment and last to get laid! ;) Haha in regards to the story: Who cares? This game looks kinda lame imo, and it reminds me of Harry Potter on the Wii.
