Kinect Fruit Ninja, Disneyland Adventures confirmed - Report

E3 2011: USA Today reports Microsoft is readying an Xbox Live version of Halfbrick's popular iPhone and iPad game; rumored theme-park-centric title also outed.


In just a few hours, Microsoft's press briefing will kick off the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo. But, as is often the case with E3 press conferences, several details about the event have already leaked, courtesy of a report in USA Today.

According to the national daily, Microsoft will use part of its media event to unveil a version of Fruit Ninja for the Kinect. Already a huge hit on the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, the game from developer Halfbrick has players slice and dice fruit thrown at them via their devices' touchpads. Presumably, these motions would be replicated in the air with the Xbox 360's full-body motion-sensing system.

USA Today also confirmed speculation that surfaced earlier in the day that Microsoft was readying a partnership with the Walt Disney Co. for at least one Kinect game. The article confirmed the previously rumored title Kinect Disneyland Adventures, which lets players "visit a virtual Disneyland." No other details were given.

For more announcements straight from Microsoft's press conference, check back at 9:30 a.m. for GameSpot's livestream and liveblog of the event.
