No matter how many times you call up LucasArts and suggest
in your best Jedi voice, "You will
release Kinect Star Wars
soon," the game apparently won't be out until holiday 2011. Kinect evangelist and creative lead Kudo Tsunoda told the BBC
as much in a recent interview, calling it and an upcoming Forza project
the two Kinect-enabled games he's most excited for next year.
"We have a Kinect Star Wars
game coming out for next holiday," Tsunoda said. "I've seen a bunch of the game and it's super compelling." Presumably he's seen more than what we saw at E3 this year, clumsily demonstrated in this video
. "Another one next year is Forza
," he added, alluding to vague plans
to integrate Kinect into the racing franchise, before boasting that it was "the best racing game of this generation of consoles."
"Those are the two games I'm most excited about," Tsunoda concluded. As far as 2011's current Kinect prospects go, those would seem like safe picks, but we're wondering if developers aren't thinking outside the box enough -- just imagine if you were to somehow combine
the two concepts ... perhaps mounting light sabers on high-end race cars? Now that would be something exciting enough to get us off the couch.
