E3: The Force is strong with Kinect Stars Wars details

[Update: A French outlet has gotten a look at Kinect Stars Wars in action, along with a game called Disneyland Adventures. Check it out below.]

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, you don't have to wait until tomorrow's Microsoft press conference to get the first details on Kinect Star Wars.

Scheduled for a winter release, the game will see its true debut (after last year's tease) at E3 with the "Jedi Destiny" mode. Players take on the role of one of several characters in a story that starts just after the events of The Phantom Menace and concludes with Revenge of the Sith. Folks interested in some Star Wars nostalgia will be happy to know that environments referenced (or seen) in the original trilogies will be present, as well. EW specifically mentions the gas-planet, Bespin, that was first seen in The Empire Strikes Back.

Gameplay doesn't sound surprising, with players (along with a friend if they'd like) waving their hands and bodies around to mimic Jedi-like movements. Expect to rock your very own force pushes, lightsaber swings, fire the guns of an X-wing, and even hop in a pod-racer.

Sounds good on paper, but whether or not any of it's any fun remains to be seen. We'll be getting our hands on the game later this week, so stay tuned for impressions and more details as we get them.
