Only a month after its release, and just in time for the holidays, Amazon.com is now offering the top-selling and well-reviewed ‘Kinect Disneyland Adventures‘ for Microsoft Xbox with Kinect for just $24.99, representing a savings of 50% off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.
Even Disney fans who don’t own a Microsoft Xbox 360 system with Kinect will have something to look forward to when the new ‘Kinect: Disneyland Adventures’ from Microsoft and Frontier Developments makes its way onto the shelves this Tuesday. Disney Music is in the process of creating a brand new website that will feature music used from and inspired by the game (read: Disneyland) and will even be offering free downloads, allowing you to experience a bit of the park at home.
At the Microsoft booth at the Disney D23 Expo booth last week, I had the opportunity to get some time in with the new Disneyland Adventures game for Microsoft Xbox Kinect by Frontier Developments. After seeing the E3 announcements and follow-up gameplay, I had high expectations for this home-away-from-home title and I am pleased to say I did not walk away disappointed.
Jen served as my guide as she pointed out the fundamentals of the game, which you can see in the eight-minute video below.
The trailer features a family as they transition from the Disneyland theme park to their living room, virtually experiencing the park as they meet & greet with Snow White and Mickey Mouse and play mini-games inside iconic attractions such as Peter Pan’s Flight, the Matterhorn and Pirates of the Caribbean, all to the tune of the Fantasmic! theme.
Below is our gallery of stills from the game which we have previously shared:
