Ray Muzyka stepped onto the stage at Microsoft’s E3 press event today, and announced Kinect support for Mass Effect 3.

“It’s unlike anything else out there,” he said as Casey Hudson was controlling Shepard with the standard controller and using his voice with Kinect.

Kinect works in combat, utilizing strategic control and allowing players to give Shepard’s party members orders in combat. The demo showed Liara and Garrus as well as hand-to-hand combat.

Myzyka said Mass Effect 3 will be the “best in the series,” after the firm “set the bar” with Mass Effect 2.

He said more will be shown at the EA booth at E3.
