Today, Majesco announced that in November it will be releasing Jillian Michaels Fitness Adventure exclusively for the Kinect, coinciding with the release of other upcoming Kinect games announced recently.
To be blunt, Jillian has had an awful history of releasing games on the Wii, with the horrific Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatums 2009, 2010, and 2011. The biggest flaws of those games were their poor use of Wii’s motion controllers. One hopes that with the move to the Kinect, she’ll start fresh with some great new developers and motion tracking will no longer be an issue.
The early screenshots look promising. A lot of early comments invoke the name “Lara Croft”, as the game is set in a “lush jungle temple environment” and the on-screen Jillian is wearing an outfit that, shall we say, is very Tomb Raider-esque. Let’s hope that the gameplay itself is as well.
I’ll post more details on the game here as I learn them.
