Reports have been coming in all week about the strength of the Xbox One’s launch-game lineup. Today, Ubisoft added a surprise entry to that list, announcing that its motion-controlled fighting game Fighter Within has shipped to retail today. That move makes the Kinect-based fighter one of the many games you’ll have at your disposal when picking up your shiny new Xbox One console late tonight or over the weekend.
Fighter Within is the first motion-fighting game designed specifically for the next generation of hardware. Powered by Kinect for Xbox One, Fighter Within provides a straightforward combat experience in which gamers use their bodies to control the movements of their on-screen character.
It’s not just an online affair, though, or one for a single player only. Making the most of the improved local multiplayer capabilities of Kinect, Fighter Within tracks both players’ moves as they challenge friends and family in one-versus-one opposition in the same room. Just please make sure you don’t actually kick, punch or otherwise maim your family, OK?
Fighter Within features 12 unique fighters, each with his or her own special attacks. The result is a diverse collection of varied combat moves players can choose from. Players can let their inner fighters decide the best strategy to defeat their opponent based on their style of fighting. Players can throw punches, kicks, counters and combos all using their bodies rather than buttons.
