SEGA's sole contribution to the Kinect catalogue so far is Sonic Riders: Zero Gravity, with Rise of Nightmares out soon, but don't expect the publisher's support to stop there.

SEGA West president Mike Hayes recently confirmed to Games Industry that the company will continue to release Kinect-compatible games in future:

And on Kinect we've definitely bought into that with what Microsoft has been saying, they've done a great job on Kinect, so we've got Rise Of Nightmares exclusively on it, and we're using Kinect functionality in our games going forward. So it's ticked a lot of boxes.

Hayes didn't reveal which games will support the sensor, but we do know that Binary Domain from legendary SEGA producer Toshihiro Nagoshi will include Kinect features.
