Boom Ball 3 for Kinect Announced

 

 

Helsinki, Finland, November 3rd, in the year of our Lord 2017: Virtual Air Guitar Company has announced that they are continuing Kinect development with two new games. “Even though manufacturing has stopped, that doesn’t mean all the Kinects out there have suddenly stopped existing. We continue to support Kinect, and we’ll keep making Kinect games for as long as enough people keep buying them,” states Aki Kanerva, Founder and Lead Designer at Virtual Air Guitar Company.

Boom Ball 3 for Kinect is nearing completion and will be released in December 2017 via the ID@Xbox self-publishing programme. It will be available exclusively on Xbox One at a price of $9.99 / €9.99 / 7.99.

Boom Ball 3 brings a new artistic direction to the popular Kinect ping-pong franchise, taking players on a journey across vivid landscapes populated by cubic animals and characters – without forgetting explosions. Kanerva says, “Boom Ball looks better than ever before. It’s like taking a colorful holiday trip around the world. And every single level has been hand-crafted for maximum fun.”

In addition to 50 all-new levels, the game also offers new difficulty modes for players looking for a challenge. “In Fast and Turbo modes, you have fewer balls to lose, and the balls fly much faster. At any time, you can choose the difficulty that suits you best – leisurely fun on Normal mode, challenging your reactions on Fast mode, or getting your sweat on in Turbo mode.”

Finally, players can now customize their paddles by choosing from pictures unlocked during gameplay, or even using Kinect to take photos of anything, such as one’s own face or the family cat.

The studio has also begun work on Kinect Funhouse, which is planned to be released in spring 2018. Details about the title will be announced in 2018.

• Cheerful ping pong on Kinect
• 50 all-new lively levels, filled with cute cubic critters
• New turbo modes for expert players
• Customize your paddles with unlockable pictures
