Feeling fruity? You soon will be

Coming to fruition in August

We love Fruit Ninja Kinect here at Kinectaku — that much should be obvious from our exhaustive Fruit Ninja Kinect preview. Thankfully, the rest of you will be lucky enough to experience this amazing title on the 10th of August, because it's being launched as part of Microsoft's Summer of Arcade 2011.

The Big M has just confirmed the release date, along with that all-important price: 800 MS Points. The more cynical amongst you may point out that even at 800 Points, Fruit Ninja Kinect is many, many times more expensive than the iPhone and Android versions, but we're having too much fun waving our arms around in an attempt to chop bananas to notice such negativity.

The other titles in the Summer of Arcade promotion are Bastion, From Dust, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet and Planet Toy Soldiers: Cold War. If you purchase all five games, you get a free download of Crimson Alliance — which is jolly nice.

800 points? That's pretty more than I expected, but I love Fruit Ninja on the iPhone so I can't wait for this. marks calendar

800 points seems a bit much but on the other hand, the game might hold alot of replay value. I'll wait for some reviews but keep it in mind.

I can't wait that long!1!!

I don't care about the price really; I've spent much more money on games I didnt play at all in the end, and I am sure I'll play this one...

It's not about the price being to high for you or me, but about fair pricing for the playing value a game holds. I even have 60€ games i never played.

And i changed my mind gonna buy it for sure. Was playing some on my phone yesterday and just want to play this on Kinect.

This will be awesome and a day one for me i have this on windows phone 7 and its good fun but to use my whole body and not just swipe at a small screen with my fingers would be amazing and a superb use of the kinects power great stuff.
