Ghost Recon to be the first true action title for the Kinect?

By Leigh D. Stark | 3:29 pm 26/05/2011

We love the Kinect, especially because it lets us really feel like we’re a part of the game. But there’s one thing missing from the titles currently available, and that’s action.

Don’t get us wrong, we love dancing and pretending to throw imaginary bowling balls as much as the next person, but ever since the Kinect was first announced as Project Natal, we’ve been looking forward to holding an invisible sword and pretending we were samurai warriors.

And while that’s still not something we can do on the Xbox 360, Ubisoft looks like it might show something off in a couple of weeks time involving its Ghost Recon series and the Kinect motion gaming system.

Seen earlier today on the Xbox website – and probably a slip up from someone working there – was an example of cover art (above) showing the new “Ghost Recon: Future Soldier” title with the purple Kinect branding, suggesting that there would be some level of gameplay based around Microsoft’s motion gaming accessory.

No word from Ubisoft on this yet, but the company has already started talking up its slate of titles to be shown at the Electronics Entertainment Expo in two weeks, with new Raving Rabbids, Assassin’s Creed, and Just Dance titles joining The Adventures of Tintin and the previously announced Rocksmith guitar game.
