If you've been waiting for a game that combines pro basketball with music rhythm gameplay, plus the motion-sensing abilities of Kinect, then we have the game for you. Majesco Entertainment has just announced plans to release NBA Baller Beats, an Xbox 360 Kinect-exclusive, to be released later this fall.
The big selling point of this title is that it is the first Kinect game that uses the motion-sensing device to not only follow the player, but also to track an object outside of the player's body. However, NBA Baller Beats is not designed to be a true basketball sim. Rather, it's an arcade game where players will try to increase their scores by becoming the best ball handler.
The game will have the player dribbling, making pump fakes and more, in time with the game's soundtrack, featuring songs by Kanye West, Run DMC, Gorillaz, Them Crooked Vultures, Common, Tiesto and others. As players become better "ballers" they will also unlock new content such as additional songs, posters, trading cards and more difficulty levels.
Majesco has released a trailer for NBA Baller Beats, shown above, but there's no actual gameplay in this teaser. Majesco claims that it will reveal more about the game at E3 2012 this June and will also let the public try out the game at "exclusive basketball camps this summer."
