Starting with 20th November, Kinect is available in Japan as well. While the launch didn’t attract as many people as in Europe or USA, crowds still gathered to get their Kinect. Luckily, Kinect will be a hit in Japan just like it currently looks to be in the rest of the countries where it’s available, making it easier for Japanese developers to build great games for it.
Kinect software modules to further improve Kinect‘s power is being developed by NaturalMotion, the company behind the Euphoria animation technology found in games such as Grand Theft Auto IV, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. They revealed a new Kinect module for their leading animation middle ware: Morpheme.
Speaking to Develop, NaturalMotion claim that the technology can bring an end to in-game lag (if any) with Kinect! Hopefully, they won’t take out the fun while they’re at it .
