The full list of Kinect launch titles have just been announced, and it’s looking a pretty well rounded list so far. An impressive 19 games will be released across the course of the November launch month, ranging from everything from the kid-friendly Kinectimals to the brawler Fighters Uncaged.
With the unit itself due out on November 10th for around £129, be sure to save a little cash to pick some of these up too.
“Kinect Adventures” : Packaged in with every Kinect sensor, this series of minigames is intended to introduce players to the nuances of motion control.
“Kinectimals” (10th November): A bit like Nintendogs, but with a bit of virtual, hand waving petting involved.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 The Videogame” (19th November) : Wizarding and spell casting, with a lot of arm flailing thrown in for good measure.
“Game Party: In Motion” (26th November): Another party-orientated set of mini-games
“Dance Central” (10th November) : one for the X-Factor crowd – have your dance moves rated as the sensor picks up your movements via skeletal joints.

“Sports Island Freedom” (26th November) : Island-based sports game, not unlike Wii Sports resort.
“Kinect Joy Ride” (10th November) : Kart racer which may have benefited from a physical controller.
