E3: 505 Games announces Blackwater and more for Kinect

4:41 PM on 06.06.2011 // Tony Ponce

505 Games has announced Blackwater, a new first-person shooter by Blacklight: Tango Down makers Zombie Studios. What's different here is that it is controlled entirely by Kinect, though there will be an option for traditional controllers. As of now, there are no screens to share, but expect to see some in the next few days.

In addition to Blackwater, two more Kinect-exclusive titles were announced -- Michael Phelps: Push the Limit and a dance title based on the movie Grease. Contain your excitement, please!

After the jump is the remainder of 505 Games' E3 lineup.

Woodland Hills, CA – June 6, 2011 – Global videogame publisher 505 Games revealed today its lineup of titles that will be showcased at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, California from June 7-9, 2011. 505 Games will display an exciting collection of upcoming titles that contains something for everyone in West Hall Meeting Room 407-B Attendees at E3 are invited to come by the 505 meeting space and get a first look, speak to key representatives from 505 and developers and get hands on game play with the following titles:

In light of the fact that Xenoblade Chronicles X is fast approaching, I suggest we start planning out a Destructoid Squad! NNID is TysonOfTime. From what I've heard, it doesn't appear Squads are region locked (except for Japan), so everyone's welcome!

Listening to this on a Tall Oaks level of RE: Revelations 2's Raid Mode is entrancing, for some reason.

Need a reason to support Indivisible? Shantae is in it!. Back it or spread the word, every bit of help counts.

Sometimes I miss how hilariously janky Brawl was, and I still have a lot of fun playing it. Not sure if I could ever take it seriously as a competitive game, but I want to enter at least one Brawl tournament in the future. You know, if I can find one.

I love how on a slow news day I can always turn to Qposts for something else to read and think about. Keep up the mojo fellas!

I finally caved in to those sweet deals, got Shantae and The Pirate's Curse, Downwell and Super House of Dead Ninjas :)

I hope that Prototype runs better on my dad's old laptop than it does on my AMD gaming rig. Some badly coded games run like ass on AMD cards.

Please spare me from issues in the process of publishing my blog! Especially since I modified CSS to unnecessarily pseudo-crop an image, and make it so some images float next to text, and make it look decent on mobile. I'm a frickin' nerd, love it.

The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench. Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content! #FashionBorne [img][/img]

Two more days to get in on the unofficial Christmas Card! [Url][/URL]
Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django has got a mystery sale on T Shirts and Tank Tops atm, $5 for each. Only catch is they're random. But I've had some good luck, got a Captain Falcon one before, Zombies ate my Neighbors and a Persona 4 X Earthbound crossover.

I would really, really love if "publish now" could work without me having to post a blog multiple because the site is such a mess right now.

I got it all the way back in spring, but I still haven't finished Majoras Mask. Think I've done the first temple.. It's hard not knowing where to go. All those linear corridors and objective markers in games has made me dumb and impatient.

A weekend open forum posted every Friday night would be really cool, at least until we get real forums again.

Went snowboarding for the first time in years. Crashed a lot, many times into trees. All that training in FF7 didnt do squat!

If I were to get Age of Empires II HD to play with you all, do you all have the DLC?

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!
