Gamescom 2017: Disneyland Adventures Remastered!
Microsoft’s Shannon Loftis had some good news and not quite as good news for Kinect fans during their pre-Gamescom Xbox show last night. The good news is that they announced three games with Kinect 2 support during the show that are coming out this year! The not quite so good news is that two of the games are just remasters of Xbox 360 Kinect games and the third game is just an ultimate edition of an existing Xbox One game. Still, at least it’s better than nothing!
The first game is Disneyland Adventures which has not only been remastered for Xbox One and Kinect 2 but also features further enhanced graphics on the upcoming Xbox One X including 4K and HDR! If you’re getting an Xbox One X though please remember that it requires a Kinect adapter to use Kinect 2 with it as Microsoft accidently forgot to include a Kinect 2 port on the console, just like they did with Xbox One S. They have added a joypad option but this game was built for Kinect so playing it with Kinect should be the most fun and obviously the most immersive way to play it.
The digital download version of Disneyland Adventures is an Xbox Play Anywhere game which means you get a free copy of the Windows 10 PC version. I don’t know if the PC version supports Kinect 2 though, hopefully it will. I also don’t know if the physical disc-based version will support Xbox Play Anywhere as I don’t think the disc versions of other games have supported that yet. Disneyland Adventures will be available on October 31st priced at £19.99 (UK) / €29.99 (EU) / $29.99 (US).
There currently isn’t a trailer for this remastered Disneyland Adventures, but I’ll update this article or post a new one as soon as a trailer is available. You can also read more information about the game in the following fact sheet and see the first screenshots of it in the gallery at the bottom:
