Earlier today, Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd announced Kung-Fu LIVE for the PlayStation Network – a game that will place you within your own fighting game using the PlayStation Eye camera and the PlayStation Move motion sensing device that will be released later this year.
Kung-Fu LIVE uses motion tracking and background removal to track the player and place their image within the game’s various settings (created with a side-scrolling presentation), where they’ll tackle a growing amount of enemies with kicks, punches, jumps and more.
Virtual Air Guitar Company CEO Teemu Mäki-Patola feels confident about the accuracy of their game – via a company press release – “We have been working with camera games for over a decade, optimizing our FreeMotion technology that incorporates the player in-game as the lead character. The FreeMotion tech replaces the traditional game controller for consoles and PC, offering a whole new way to play video games. Kung-Fu LIVE will be one of the top notch PSEye and Move games coming to market this year.”
Not only will the game target hardcore fighting game enthusiasts, but also social and casual gamers who wish to play the game with friends. And, let’s not forget those who advocate these sorts of video games as a form of exercise – the game will target them as well.
Kung-Fu LIVE is still in development, but should be released sometime later this year on the PlayStation Network. We’ll have more information about the title as it becomes available, or you can check the game’s official website to learn more.
