Konami said this morning that it’s to publish two Kinect titles alongside thew peripheral’s launch, with another to follow later in November.

DanceEvolution and CROSSBOARD 7 will be released alongside Kinect on November 10, while Hudson’s Sports Island Freedom will follow on November 25.

DanceEvolution is all about dancing, as you’d expect, and pits itself against Harmonix’s Dance Central.

CROSSBOARD 7 uses the player’s movements to steer their on-screen creature who is “barreling down a series of hazard-strewn courses.”

Sports Island Freedom offers ten sporting events, including tennis, boxing, archery, paintball, beach volleyball, dodge ball, kendo, mogul skiing, snowboard cross and figure skating.

Kinect launches in the US on November 4 and on November 10 in Europe.
