Fruit Ninja Kinect Hits The 1Million Downloads Milestone

Halfbrick announced today that their chart-topping Xbox Live Arcade Kinect title, Fruit Ninja Kinect, has exceeded the 1 million downloads mark since its debut last August 2011.

“Hitting 1 million downloads for XBLA is an awesome achievement,” said Phil Larsen, chief marketing officer at Halfbrick. “It’s a milestone that proves how with the right team and vision, a mobile game can be expanded into a much bigger franchise across new platforms and markets and be wildly successful!”

With simple, yet addictive mechanics that made the original Fruit Ninja such a breakout success on mobile devices, Fruit Ninja Kinect on the Xbox LIVE Arcade stays true to the spirit of the beloved title, while expanding players’ experience with new gameplay modes and unlockable content. Players use their arms (and legs) to slice and swipe their way through the various game modes – Classic, Zen and Arcade – to become the ultimate Fruit Ninja. Fruit Ninja Kinect also has multiplayer functionality so Fruit Ninjas can slice side-by-side or challenge one another.

Despite 1 million downloads, it was not revealed how many of those were actual converted sales from Trial to Full Versions of the title. It was the number one title on last years XBLA’s Summer of Arcade series and 2011′s “Best Casual Game” Interactive Achievement award winner…

…but we still don’t know how many people actually bought it!
