With Classic, Zen and the frenetic Arcade Mode, Fruit Ninja Kinect includes all the action you know and love with precision control — along with special features exclusive to Kinect! With Party Mode, multiple players can turn a normal night into a fierce tournament — and the new Challenge system will reveal the true masters among your friends!

"Hitting 1 million downloads for XBLA is an awesome achievement," said Phil Larsen, chief marketing officer at Halfbrick. "It's a milestone that proves how with the right team and vision, a mobile game can be expanded into a much bigger franchise across new platforms and markets and be wildly successful!"

Fruit Ninja Kinect was the number one title on XBLA's Summer of Arcade series and 2011's "Best Casual Game" Interactive Achievement award winner. With the simple yet addictive mechanics that made Fruit Ninja such a breakout success on mobile devices, Fruit Ninja Kinect stays true to the spirit of the beloved title, while expanding players' experience with new gameplay modes and unlockable content. Players use their arms (and legs) to slice and swipe their way through the various game modes -- Classic, Zen and Arcade -- to become the ultimate Fruit Ninja. Fruit Ninja Kinect also has multiplayer functionality so Fruit Ninjas can slice side-by-side or challenge one another.
