Kinect Star Wars launches April 3

Announced back in July, the Kinect Star Wars and special-edition Xbox 360 bundle will finally be available staring April 3.


Adventure, excitement. A Jedi craves not these things. But LucasArts has something that might interest non-Jedi out there, as the publisher today announced that Kinect Star Wars and its special-edition Xbox 360 hardware bundle will both launch on April 3.

Additionally, LucasArts announced a handful of new game modes that will be included in Kinect Star Wars. The Duels of Fate mode will see players develop Jedi skills in a series of battles against Sith opponents, while the Galactic Dance Off mode lets players "battle Darth Vader on the dance floor" to the beat of Star Wars-themed pop songs.

Previously set for release last year, Kinect Star Wars is set primarily during the time of "Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones," with overlapping bits of the other prequel trilogy films and nods to the original Star Wars trilogy as well.
