Natal yoga game out in October, say Amazon and GAME

According to a pulled Amazon page and a GAME 360 release document obtained by VG247, a “Yoga Natal” title is set for release in October, adding credence to previous talk of the motion camera shipping that month.

The internal GAME release list, passed over by a source under conditions of anonymity, lists the fitness title at the very bottom at an “October” release. It’s apparently developed by Tradewest.

Amazon’s listing, which has since been deleted but cached, has it dated for October 29, 2010, for £17.99. That would be the final Friday of the month.

This is the second time October has been mentioned in relation to Natal’s release, with Brit celebrity Jonathan Ross already dropping the date after seeing the system in action in London. Microsoft remained tight-lipped over Ross’s slip.

Either way, it looks very likely the exact date will be announced at a specific event for Natal at E3 on Sunday, June 13 in LA.

We’ve contacted Tradewest for comment, but have had no reply at the time of publishing.

    I can’t see how Natal could benefit a yoga game…

    What would it do, let you know if you’re doing a position right?
    Unless there is some sort of added peripheral it won’t be able to calculate body mass or weight either.

    I can see that being a good move by MS. Yoga is a pretty popular past time, and it’s something which will speak directly to the WiiFit buying audience. It’s certainly a perfect match for the Natal tech, so fair play.

    Play some MW2, then unwind with Yoga… I like it.

    Actually, as per 1. I don’t see Natal on it’s own adding much here. Wii Fit works because of the board weighing you, knowing what foot you have weight on, etc.

    To me Natal still feels light as a gaming peripheral due to the lack of additional input methods. Looks great for interface and basic – bash the ball stuff – but light for everything else.

    To be fair to MS and Natal, we don’t actually know how it’s going to work. All we’ve seen is some random painting game, and dodgeball. It does indicate where MS are going with Natal though: nowhere near the hardcore.

    Riveting. Although to be fair, it’s not even a Microsoft game. Tradewest appear to do a nice line in casual shit. :-D

    Blerk we all know its not a Microsoft game because they virtually have no first party. They only thing keeping them a float are third party titles.

    but you’re from Europe aka the twilight zone, maybe there M$ has a better first party than Sony :D

    LOL. I mean really. I remember there was a PS2 game with sports and Yogas…

    MAN, i’m now starting to think that Natal can’t bring something new or special.
