A demo for Crimson Dragon, the Kinect title from the creator of Panzer Dragoon, was accidentally released on the XBL Marketplace in Japan today before being quickly pulled by Microsoft.

The game was originally set for a June 2011 release in Japan before being delayed a week ahead of time. Thanks, Gamekyo.

Kinect Party has launched and will be free through December 31. Grab it now from the Xbox Marketplace – make sure you get both the base game and full unlock.

If you own both you can unlock the original’s activities in the sequel.

Kinect is still a big deal over at Microsoft, as the company has just published a new job ad for candidates to help them take the motion-controlled tech to the next level. The advert also makes no secret that the team will “fail” at times, but that each failure leads to new ideas. It’s also a high-risk job, the posting states. See it in full below.

Intel: Discovered is a free downloadable Kinect title released this week which teaches you to “be a superstar”. Chris Evans (Captain America, The Avengers) teaches “the secrets of the action hero” while Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman will help you “get styled and learn how to work the runway” and LMFAO’s Redfoo will advise you in how to “rock the party”. The game arrived unannounced yesterday and was the subject of much delighted speculation as to AR games and tie-ins before downloads completed and this odd collection of mini-games was revealed. Still, you can make and share a poster of you and Chris Evans; that seems pretty alright.

The price cut has not been officially detailed, but Kotaku‘s sources suggest it will hold through January at GameStop at the very least.
