LucasArts brings Star Wars to Xbox 360 Kinect

At the Microsoft E3 2010 press conference today, LucasArts unveiled what appears to be an entirely motion-controlled Star Wars title for the Xbox 360’s new Kinect peripheral.

Beyond the gameplay footage shown, details are currently very sparse. However, from what we can tell, it looks as though it’s an on-rails action combat game. Force powers, laser bolt deflection and lightsaber duels with Darth Vader were all featured heavily within the showcase. The graphical art style lends itself to LucasFilm’s TV series The Clone Wars, which could suggest it may fall under the animation’s franchise.

No name has been announced yet, but the trailer points to a (vague) launch date in 2011.
