Press Release

Marina Del Rey, CA - July 26, 2011 - UTV Ignition Games today announced that it will partner with leading European publisher Black Bean Games and talented game developer Virtual Air Guitar Company to bring Kung Fu High Impact to Kinect™ for Xbox 360®.

The gamer will be literally transported into the action, as he or she will be able to see real-life combat movements interacting with the enemies and objects on screen.

"Kinect for Xbox 360 truly allows developers to push the game-design envelope with completely new gameplay concepts that appeal to a wide variety of players, and we're elated to work with Black Bean Games and Virtual Air Guitar Company to bring this riotously enjoyable, family-friendly romp to living rooms across the Americas this fall," said Lokesh Dhar, senior vice president at UTV Ignition Games.
