Welcome to Off Screen, a new Movies.com feature that follows up on big screen characters in other media, be they comics, books, TV shows or video games .
We're not too familiar with the Xbox 360 Kinect except that from the outside it looks like a cool enough interactive experience that's more suited for family fun night, but there's nothing wrong with gaming that involves more than one person in the same room. We're so used to online gaming these days that we often forget what it's like to play games alongside actual people in the same space, and if your family are fans of the Pixar movies then you'll certainly dig their latest Kinect venture.
Recently announced by Disney/Pixar is Kinect Rush, an interactive game that allows you and your family (or friends) to play inside the worlds of not just one Pixar movie, but five. We have The Incredibles, Cars, Toy Story, Up and Ratatouille, and if you're familiar with Kinect then you'll know that you control everything with your arms and body movement. The graphics look great and kids should love this sucker when it lands in stores on March 12th. We're a little bummed not to see WALL-E included, though maybe they're saving him, Nemo and those Monsters Inc. dudes for the sequel.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
