To celebrate the golden age of gaming and add even more content to Fruit Ninja Kinect, Halfbrick has announced the imminent release of the 8-Bit Cartridge DLC for the XBLA favorite. With a funky chiptunes soundtrack and gigantic pixels everywhere, the classic style of retro games comes alive in the modern motion-controlled masterpiece.
The DLC features the Super Retro Land background, Game Man shadow and Pixel Love blade – not to mention a complete graphical overhaul as Sensei and his beloved fruit receive a serious downgrade. Releasing this Friday, August 31st for 160 Microsoft Points, the 8-Bit Cartridge pack is the first of many more DLC packs planned for Fruit Ninja Kinect throughout the remainder of 2012.
As long-time exhibitors and supporters of the Penny Arcade Expo, Halfbrick staff will be on hand this week at PAX Prime in Seattle (Booth 6115) to demo the 8-Bit Cartridge. The fun doesn’t stop there – Halfbrick is giving away free download codes for the DLC to each and every person who visits*!
Since its initial release as part of the 2011 Summer of Arcade , Fruit Ninja Kinect has been downloaded over 1.5 million times, cementing its place as one of the most popular XBLA games of all time.
