I have a feeling that nearly everyone on the planet has played Fruit Ninja on one platform or another. I’ve played it many times on a couple of different platforms and it’s a lovely way to pass some time in a gaming way. Developer, Halfbrick Studios have announced a release date for their follow-up to the smash-hit, swipey, fruit butchering ninja game.
Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 will feature all of the fun and excitement of the original, plus five new game modes for the whole family to enjoy.
These new multiplayer modes will allow up to four simultaneous players to jump in on the action, with Battle and Party modes providing the perfect place to test those seasoned ninja skills. There’ll be a new progression system, allowing you to earn blades, dojos and belts in exchange for completing challenges.
Each mode takes place at the Blueberry Moon Festival and is presented by one of the new Fruit Ninja team members, Katsuro, Mari, Han and Nobu. Become a master of stealth by dodging shurikens, hacking through bamboo and avoiding those spotlights.
Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 is coming exclusively to Xbox One on the 18th of March and to celebrate, Halfbrick have released this rather funky live-action trailer. What do you think?
