Kinectimals coming to Windows Phone 7 with cats and bears
Microsoft has said its adorable Kinectimals will be made available on Windows Phone 7, and it will even support the bears content announced for it last month.
Speaking with Alex Donaldson at the Microsoft Playday event in Cologne, a MS rep told VG247 that the game is being toted as the first Kinect title for the platform.
“There’s a QR code element built into the game where you able to transfer your cat that you’ve developed there, or you can reverse that and take your animal from your phone to your Xbox,” a Microsoft rep demoing the mobile version of the game said.
Kinectimals on Windows Phone 7 replaces much of the motion control methods with touchscreen-based shenanigans – but there is one vital connection to its motion controlled brother – the cats.
The technology was being demoed live at the show, showing cats and bears being transferred from one system to the other with a few button presses and use of the cameras on both devices.
Kinectimals for WP7 is slated for a fall release.
