‘No need to get hyper-excited’ over Halo Anniversary’s Kinect features

Best not get too crazy over Halo Anniversary‘s Kinect functionality. While still a secret for now, the whole thing is not really worth making a fuss about, 343 Industries itself says.

“I don’t think it’s going to be something that people need to be hyper-excited about,” franchise development director Frank O’Connor has told OXM. “It’ll be cool, but it’s not something you’d put on the front of the box.

“I don’t want to downplay it, but I think of it like this – I use voice on Netflix and it’s awesome, and that’s what this’ll be. Something that enhances you overall experience.”

According to O’Connor, 343 doesn’t “even have a date pencilled in for that announcement”.

Whatever the addition though, it’s assured it will not “in any way, affect the core gameplay.”

Anniversary is out later in the year, on November 15th.
