GamerscoreBlog‘s got details of the first game to feature New Xbox Experience’s Avatars.

A Kingdom for Keflings will release on November 19, the same day as the 360 UI update.

The title is described thus:

You play a giant. Not just any giant, either. The giant will take on the form of the Avatar you created. With this giant, you supervise the building of a metropolis that starts as a simple village. Order your Keflings around making them chop wood, build, etc. You can even paint your buildings to make them even more “yours”.

Oh, and if you get bored and need to get out some aggression, you can kick them around a little. Not that I would ever do such a thing. Ever…

Other features of the game (ripped from the media blast) are:

  • The ability to build cities online cooperatively with up to 3 friends
  • Stylized animated graphics that change with the seasons and season-based gameplay
  • A dynamic-music soundtrack (which adapts to the season and the state of the village)

A Kingdom for Keflings is rated E for Everyone and will be 800 MS Points.

The world needs more games involving Avatar giants building cities. Watch for it later this month.
