Mystery over?

Kinect-exclusive puppeteer shooter (yes, really) The Gunstringer has had its target format shrouded in mystery, with developer Twisted Pixel dodging the question like a skeleton marionette, even in our exclusive The Gunstringer interview. Now the intrigue is dead, as a Microsoft press release has called the game an Xbox Live Arcade title.

The Gunstringer” (Twisted Pixel Games) – From the developers that brought you award-winning hits like “Splosion Man,” “The Maw” and “Comic Jumper,” comes an all-new Kinect-exclusive title, “The Gunstringer” for Xbox LIVE Arcade. Take control of an undead marionette in an epic Wild West stage production that requires your puppeteering and quick draw shooting skills to exact revenge on the Gunstringer's enemies – all controller-free.

The game is currently playable at Microsoft's February Showcase alongside fellow Kinect headliner Child of Eden, and Twisted Pixel sent over a stack of new screenshots showing off the Gunstringer himself in greater detail, which you can see below.
