Fruit Ninja Kinect DLC boldly goes where no Fruit Ninja's gone before

Nothing is more important in Fruit Ninja than freshness, which is why Halfbrick has announced more DLC for the Kinect iteration of the produce bisection game. The "Space Capsule" DLC adds a new "Star Chart" background, a new player silhouette style called the "Stellar Shadow," and an on-screen sword called the "Comet Blade."

What it doesn't add -- and this is a massive missed opportunity -- is bags of those freeze-dried strawberries that are sold as "astronaut food." We could totally be cutting futuristic fruits right now! The space food-free DLC is available now for $2.

Fruit Ninja Kinect Slices Up the Charts as the Top-Selling Xbox LIVE® Summer of Arcade 2011 Title

BRISBANE, Australia - September 7, 2011 - 'Space Capsule,' the second DLC pack for this summer's wildly successful Fruit Ninja Kinect from Halfbrick, is available for download starting today. With an army of fruit ninjas attacking the online leaderboards, Halfbrick's addictive title is already a breakout success less than a month after release.

The Fruit Ninja Kinect 'Space Capsule' DLC brings new content and achievements to the dojo, including the dazzling "Star Chart Background," the "Stellar Shadow" silhouette, and the "Comet Blade" that steers comets to create cosmic fruit collisions. And with an additional 50 Gamerscore points unlockable through three new achievements, players can earn even greater bragging rights over their rival ninjas.

'Space Capsule' is now available for download for 160 Microsoft Points ($2). Fruit Ninja Kinect is rated "E for Everyone" by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and is available for download through Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 MSP ($10) for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system with Kinect™. All new items will be immediately available in the Sensei Swag menu upon download.

Fruit Ninja Kinect takes all the frenzied fruit-slicing action from the highly addictive hit mobile game and brings it full scale, allowing players to swing their arms and legs to attack fruit. With multiple local multiplayer modes, players can battle each other or team up to slice through an endless cascade of flying fruits while trying to avoid dangerous bombs.
