Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 Arrives For Xbox One in March

Push the furniture out of the way and find your best ninja costume, as Halfbrick have announced that they will be releasing Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 on March 18th, exclusively for Xbox One at a price of $14.99.

The game will contain a host of new features, including five new game modes and four-person multiplayer. A new progression system has been added, which will allow the player to earn blades, dojos and belts as they progress.

The Blueberry Moon Festival is the setting for each mode within the game, and is presented by one of the new members of the Fruit Ninja Team – Katsuro, Mari, Han and Nobu.


Shainiel Deo, chief executive of Halfbrick studios, feels that Fruit Kinect Ninja 2 is the “most satisfying, complete, and accessible party game ever created” and noted that it has “been built from the ground up to take full advantage of the latest hardware.”

Hibernum Creations, developers of the game, expressed their delight at working on the famous franchise in collaboration with Halfbrick. “We are really excited to enter the console market with an amazing brand like Fruit Ninja. It was a pleasure to work with Halfbrick on this game and we are extremely proud of what we’ve created together.”

Fruit Ninja first rose to stardom back in 2010, during its original release for the iPhone and various Android devices. By March 2011, the game had sold 20 million copies across all platforms. Fruit Ninja Kinect was the first title for the Xbox, releasing on the Xbox 360 in August 2011, and went on to sell over 1 million downloads less than a year after release.
