- NinjaBee announced today that A Kingdom for Keflings will be the first XBox 360 title to ship with playable, in-game Avatars.
Press Release: A Kingdom for Keflings, the First Xbox 360 Game to Launch with Playable Avatars, Arrives on Nov. 19 with the New Xbox Experience
Giants in video games? Nothing new. But playing with your own doppelganger as the giant? That is something you can only do on Xbox LIVE Arcade.
From NinjaBee, the developer that brought fan favorites "Band of Bugs," "Outpost Kaloki X" and "Cloning Clyde," comes "A Kingdom for Keflings," a new twist to the city-building game genre where you play as a giant working to turn a village of Keflings into a metropolis.
The Xbox LIVE Arcade game, launching on Nov. 19 with the New Xbox Experience, is the first Xbox 360 title to ship with playable, in-game Avatars. "A Kingdom for Keflings" also comes packed with custom animations tailored for Avatars and player-controlled social emotes. The game supports 4-player Xbox LIVE multiplayer with each friend using a custom Avatar, and works perfectly with Xbox LIVE Party.
But Avatar inclusion is just half the fun. In this innovative, Medieval-era city-builder, giants start out with a small village and a handful (literally!) of helpful Keflings...
