If you felt there weren’t enough video games for your preschooler when it came to Xbox’s controller free Kinect, you are in for a treat. We love our Kinect (which reminds me we need to play it this week – I feel a family game night coming on) and it’s something we enjoy doing together as a family.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced the release of a brand new video game for the Kinect just for your preschooler – Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster.
We have not personally tested this game, but the reviews we’ve read have been very good.
Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster is an Adventure game for young players that combines the hallmark educational themes of the Sesame Street universe with the fun and ease of play of the Microsoft Kinect Sensor.* An Xbox 360 exclusive, Sesame Street: Once Upon A Monster is an interactive storybook like no other as children join Elmo, Cookie Monster, Grover, Oscar the Grouch and other characters as they meet new monsters and help them overcome their problems. Game features include: multiple ‘chapters’ of play, familiar Sesame Street characters as well as friendly new monsters, drop-in/out 2-player co-op support and active gameplay featuring the controller-free Kinect Sensor.
