It was today that Microsoft took a huge step into the gaming platform, of the iOS with the newest release of the game Kinectimals. This new game, which is aiming to be played by children actually involves the interaction with virtual animals, which this game was debuted just last year on the Xbox 360 as a game that took full advantage of the Kinect motion-sensing controlling system.
This irresistible mobile experience gives you the chance to use your phone to visit the island of Lemuria and play with, care for and fall in love with your very own cub. Bring your pet with you wherever you go! If you’ve already experienced Kinectimals on Kinect for Xbox 360, your phone becomes the key to unlocking five new cubs on your console.
This new release actually marks a unique moved by Microsoft themselves, whom has been a gaming brand that has been established with the Xbox and Kinect lineup which normally had been thought to be in the looks of leveraging the products to be promoting their own Windows Phone platform instead. Though Microsoft had been making some huge pushes into the iOS gaming lineup over this past week, starting off with the My Xbox Live profile management application, and also Halo Waypoint which is a companion application for another very familiar and popular gaming franchise.
Though beyond all these new offerings, the addition today of Kinectimals shows signs of an even bigger investment on Microsoft’s part within the iOS platform. And Microsoft is now proving themselves fully willing to be branching out from their own platforms in support the games that are running directly on the iOS devices themselves.
