Ice Age 4: Continental Drift – Arctic Games has now been released in the UK & Europe for Xbox Kinect. (The US release date is July 10th.) It seems to be a winter sports-based minigame collection and the graphics in the finished game actually look fairly close to the first Ice Age movie. I couldn’t find a trailer so here is a video of some of the gameplay and cut-scenes from the start of the game uploaded by a YouTube user called XPGBETAGAMING:
