- Virtual Air Guitar Company's CEO Teemu Maki-Patola
has revealed today on the PlayStation Blog that Kung-Fu Live is coming to the PSN Store later this year and will utilize technology specially developed for PlayStation Eye to create an experience like never before.
To quote: As some of you may have heard, we announced Kung-Fu Live with a playable sneak preview last week in New York. The reception from journalists, as well as gamers, has totally overwhelmed us!
We also found ourselves in the middle of the rising motion gaming discussion as many of the stories call out that our game already does what Natal is trying for: Kung-Fu Live uses full-body skeleton tracking to track the player's moves in real-time.
Thus, people have been saying that our game and tech using the PlayStation Eye is stealing the thunder from Natal. LOL!
With our Freemotion technology and the awesome quality of the PlayStation Eye camera, full-body motion gaming is already here. Kung-Fu Live also scans you inside the game world where you literally become the hero of the game.
There you are boosted with super human abilities, such as being able to jump flips without actually making flips, do high jump kicks, shoot lightning from your hands, and so on. Oh yeah, not to mention that you can do The Matrix trick of slowing the speed of your opponents' time while you kick their butts.
So toss away the gamepad for a change and experience what it's like to be Jackie Chan (no real martial art skills needed): Punch, kick, jump and pummel your enemies into oblivion using your body as your only weapon.
I can't wait to show you guys more of Kung-Fu LIVE, but for now, check out the teaser trailer above for a glimpse of the kick-ass action we have in store.
