Sega’s upcoming squad based shooter Binary Domain will have Kinect support. At least that is what Sega’s Jun Yoshinoro said to Joystiq while they were checking out the game at the E3.
Binary Domain and Kinect
For now Jun only confirmed that the game would support Kinect for giving voice commands. Normally you would give these commands while wearing a headset, but with Kinect you will be able to take off that uncomfortable piece of plastic and just scream at your television!
If the game receives local co-op support this would be an impressive feat for Kinect, as the sensor will have to distinguish which player is saying what. Unfortunately at this point there is nothing more known about whether the game will make more use of the Kinect sensor, or whether it will only support voice commands. We’ll keep you up to date on this!
“What I wanted to create this time was a dramatic and energetic sci-fi shooter. When you hear sci-fi you may think of cold, clinical environments but with Binary Domain I wanted to combine this with a deep human drama” commented Toshihiro Nagoshi. “The keyword we have in mind for this project is “Life”. I wanted to make something that will be accepted by both the Japanese and Western markets and this fundamental theme is something everyone knows, but which the full extent of can be difficult to grasp.”
The press release also states that Binary Domain’s central theme of life is key to the way the innovative and “highly advanced” AI system is being developed. Players will have to plan their moves strategically and carefully in order to progress through the hostile environments of the game.
