BABEL RISING BUILDS ON UBISOFT'S STRONG FOUNDATION OF PLAYSTATION NETWORK AND XBOX LIVE ARCADE FOR XBOX 360 TITLES

SAN FRANCISCO – October 27, 2011 –Today, Ubisoft announced the development of Babel Rising, a new game coming to PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft in calendar year 2012. Developed by Mando Productions, players use the Kinect™ for Microsoft Xbox 360® entertainment system or the PlayStation®Move for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system to summon God-like powers and prevent the Babylonians from constructing the Tower of Babel. Babel Rising highlights Ubisoft's continued leadership in developing games for PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

Ubisoft's Babel Rising is the next-generation version of the popular iPhone game of the same name. In Babel Rising, gamers play as God, preventing humans from building the tower of Babel. Gamers can use their divine powers by hurling bolts of lightning, summoning massive earthquakes or unleashing gigantic floods upon the Babylonians. Developer Mando Productions has breathed new life into the game with 3D graphics and competitive and cooperative multiplayer modes.

Babel Rising joins the previously announced I Am Alive™ and Shoot Many Robots™ as part of Ubisoft's upcoming digital releases. During Ubisoft's Digital Day event, Ubisoft also demonstrated a yet-to-be named ATV racing game featuring fast-paced racing, aerial tricks, extensive vehicle customization options and a competitive multiplayer experience that is also scheduled for release in calendar year 2012.

This year alone, Ubisoft's From Dust™ became one of the top-selling digital titles, surpassing 500,000 downloads, and other titles, such as Beyond Good & Evil® HD and Outland™, have been critically acclaimed fan favorites.

here's what it looks like on the iPhone
Hopefully they will release a windows phone version and integrate into the Kinect version Big Grin
From the description I thought it was going to be like a Kinect version of Populous or Black & White. Then again I guess it's possible it still could be since that video is just the mobile phone version.
It seems Kinect keeps getting more and more controversial games...or is it just me? Like I'm sure this game is going to spark up the religious folk and anger them, blackwater angers a lot of other people, KS2 angers more people, BEP is angering the MJ crowd...I don't remember hearing much controversy about CoD: MW2's airport civilian killing scene or Homefront's Korean kiling innocent men and women...really we need to nitpick about kinect games? lol
