Fruit Ninja, the successful fruit-slicing mobile game franchise, is making its TV debut with the Xbox 360 Kinect.
The game, much like its mobile counterparts, lets you slice and dice fruit combos, but instead of using your fingers, you will achieve your high scores with karate chops and Kinect motion controls. The game includes a Classic, Arcade and Zen mode, but also offers a Challenge mod and a multiplayer mode.
Don’t expect to beat the high scores you’ve accumulated on your iPhone, though. We’ve played this game several times, and while the Kinect does a decent job of tracking your arm movements as you slice the screen, it just isn’t as accurate as playing on a touchscreen. Still, it’s hilarious to see your friends flail around trying to slash bananas before they fall off the screen.
Fruit Ninja‘s simple gameplay has made it a consistent resident of the iPhone‘s top 10 app list. The game has been downloaded more than 25 million times since made its debut in April 2010. The game is already available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone 7 and Symbian.
Fruit Ninja for Xbox Kinect retails for $10. Check out the screenshots below, and let us know if you’re a fan of the fruity franchise in the comments.
