Kinectimals was one of the very first Xbox 360 games that supported Microsoft's Kinect motion controller camera. Today VG247.com reports that Kinectimals will be ported over to smartphones that support Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 operating system. Both games will allow its users to get up close and personal with cute animals like cats and bears. However, the motion controller features of the Xbox 360 original, released in 2010, won't be on the Windows Phone 7 version. Instead users will have to use the smartphone's touch screen to interact with the virtual animals rather than the phone's camera.
If you own both versions of the game, Xbox Live will allow gamers to transfer animals created in the Xbox 360 version of Kinectimals over to the Windows Phone 7 version and vice-versa. In addition, the Windows Phone 7 version will allow gamers to place their animal in front of any background that can be selected from the phone's photo gallery. The Windows Phone 7 version of Kinectimals is due out this fall.
Shacknews also has some more info about other upcoming Windows Phone 7 game titles. They include Bug Village, where gamers create and grow a colony of ants and bees, Toy Soldiers: Boot Camp, a spin-off of the Xbox 360 downloadable action game series, and Chickens Can't Fly, where you have to conduct experiments on, well, chickens. We should see how well these games sell when Microsoft launches the big "Mango" update for Windows Phone 7 later this year.
