Kinectimals Is Back And Now “With Bears”

July 26, 2011, By Christian Davis

The jump roping animals for Kinect are back and they brought bears with them. The unbelievably cute Kinect game that had you playing with and taking care of an imaginary pet has now expanded and kids everywhere should be excited.

What exactly has been expanded on with the latest Kinectimals installment? Here’s an excerpt from the Press Release below:

A new adventure with bears. A new guide, Bumblina, will help you and your new bear cub explore an uncharted island off the coast of Lemuria. Bring your bear cub along to track Captain Blackwood’s progress as he explored the island more than 200 years ago and uncover a mysterious device buried underground to seek out a new adventure.   

“Nice to meet you.” Your journey begins when you adopt and name one of five adventurous bears – Black Bear, Grizzly Bear, Cinnamon Bear, Glacier Bear or Polar Bear or five playful cats – Lion, Royal Bengal Tiger, Cheetah, Leopard or Panther. Discover the lush environments on the islands as you journey with your cub to unlock 10 more animals during the course of your journeys to solve the Legend of Felis Aurum and the Fiddler’s Quest.

The fun never ends. Train your pet to perform tricks like fetch, play activities including jump rope and juggling and even master agility courses with hops, stops and balancing acts. Of course, there is always time to care for your pet by feeding, bathing and grooming, too.

Collect and customize. Travel far and wide to collect hundreds of 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. 

Plush Pals. Bring your pet to life with a variety of collectable “Kinectimals” plush pals (sold separately), including the White Tiger, Bornean Clouded Leopard, Polar Bear and other cuddly cubs. Bring your new pals into your game by scanning them using Microsoft tag (mtag) technology

“Kinectimals Now with Bears” will be available this fall for $49.99. However, if you already have the title you can get the “Bear Island” DLC for $14.99
