PS3's 'Kinect challenger', Kung-Fu Live, out next month

Full body-scanning title gets new trailer

A game that apes many of Kinect's abilities on PS3 will arrive via PSN next month.

'Full-body motion fighting experience', Kung-Fu LIVE, will be launch on PlayStation Network for £10.99 on December 8.

The title, developed by Finland's Virtual Air Guitar Company, utilises the PS Eye camera to track the user's limbs.

"We had the opportunity to bring Kung-Fu LIVE to thousands of players across the world this summer at multiple public gaming events and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. The feedback has helped our small, independent team of developers deliver a fresh, fast, and frenetic experience that's never been done quite like this before," said Teemu Maki-Patola, CEO of Virtual Air Guitar Company Ltd.

"Amid the sweat and adrenaline-filled discussion, the question everyone has had for us since day one was this: When will it launch? That question has finally been answered- and players will now be able to kick some serious ass in their living rooms this December."

The game's makers boast "enormous interactive environments, a roster of impossible-made-possible power moves, and unique multiplayer components".
