War comes to Kinect

Readers of our sister site Nintendo Life will be familiar with Teyon's WiiWare shooters Heavy Fire: Special Operations and impending follow-up Heavy Fire: Black Arms. Rumours are now pointing that the series may be making its debut on Kinect, with a GameFly listing outing Heavy Fire: Afghanistan.

The official blurb from publisher Mastiff Games mentions multiple objectives and vehicles, but gamers familiar with the series from WiiWare know it as a pretty simplistic arcade-style on-rails shooter, so don't go expecting Call of Duty-style first-person action.

We've put out the feelers with Mastiff Games and Teyon to see if we can bring you more information, so stay tuned for more details.

at least we'll see how one developer decides to make shooting controls. I hope it isn't point at the screen a say "fire"
