We haven’t heard much about the Japanese Kinect game coming from Yukio Futatsugi, the director of Sega classic Panzer Dragoon, since Tokyo Game Show. A new Kinect feature on Famitsu reveals a few new details and some screenshots of what they’re calling “Project Draco.”
In this release, scheduled to hit Japan in 2011, you’ll use Kinect to communicate with a dragon. You’ll raise it and train it, and then eventually fly with it.
According to Andria Sang, Futatsugi and his staff are taking care to ensure that players can get their Kinect flail on for long periods without becoming tired. They’re already looking at level lengths and frequency of enemy attacks — that’s good to hear. Futatsugi told Famitsu that this is not a party type game where everyone enjoys themselves for brief periods, but is the type of game into which players sink their teeth. Knowing this, they’re working to make sure you can get that real feeling of control, but not become tired easily.
He said, “Don’t you want to be able to actually experience the feeling of communicating with a dragon and riding it into battle? I do.”
