A wide-eyed Bengal tiger cub cocks its head to the side and playfully peers at you. Memories of your first pet come rushing back and you wistfully wish you could adopt this cub too. Through the magic of Kinect for Xbox 360, that furry tiger cub is in your living room and about to become your best friend.
“Kinectimals” invites children, their parents and animal lovers of all ages to build lasting friendships with some of the world’s most exotic creatures. Just like real pets, your “Kinectimals” cubs will come running when they hear your voice, respond to commands* such as “jump,” “roll over” and “play dead,” and purr with joy when you scratch them behind their ears. With your brand new pet and your loveable guide Bumble, you will embark on a journey across the mysterious island of Lemuria and build a heart-warming bond while exploring the island’s many secrets. Along the way, you and your cubs will discover hidden treasure, ancient ruins, a city frozen in ice and solve the Legend of Felis Aurum – “The Gold Cat.” Unlock up to 600 collectables to personalize the home you and your cub live in.
- ”Nice to meet you.” Your journey begins when you adopt and name* one of five playful friends - Lion, Royal Bengal Tiger, Cheetah, Leopard or Panther. Discover the lush environments on the island you live on as you journey with your cub to unlock six more animals during the course of your journey to solve the Legend of Felis Aurum.
- Create memories that last a lifetime. From the first time she recognizes her name to when she learns to fetch, your cub will grow up as your sidekick and friend, eager to discover the environment around you. Use your voice* and body to teach your pet new tricks and build a bond that grows.
- The fun never ends. Train your pet to perform tricks like fetch, play activities including jump rope, and even master agility courses with hops, stops and balancing acts. Of course, there is always time to care for your cub by feeding, bathing and grooming, too.
- Get Competitive. Engage in challenges with your pet to earn Achievements and improve your Gamerscore, or team up and compete in multi-player contests with friends and family members and their pets to see who can score the highest. Plus, win cool rewards for your Xbox 360 Avatar.
- Collect and customize. Travel far and wide to collect up to 600 different treasures and toys. You can customize your pet and decorate your home, plus use the in-game store to shop for items to nurture and care for your new best friend.
- Grow your “Kinectimals” family. Two limited collector’s-edition games with 7” JAKKS plush toys will be available exclusively at Toys “R” Us and GameStop this holiday . Choose the King Cheetah or Maltese Tiger plush toy, scan the tag with your Kinect sensor, then watch your new collectable cub and a toy come to life on the screen right before your eyes. With your very own plush pal, you can keep your new friend with you even when you’re away from your Xbox 360.
