[Rumor] Infinity Blade May Be Coming to China as a Kinect Game

Tencent is porting Epic Games' Infinity Blade to Kinect on Xbox One.

The popular iPhone title Infinity Blade might be being ported to the Xbox One for a Chinese release. Tencent, a huge Chinese publisher, has been teasing the game on its official site with various pictures. Despite not using the name Infinity Blade itself, the images use characters and weapons that would fit right in with the fighting game.

Some of the images show players slicing through their TVs and another shows a very old Xbox logo. It’s therefore not hard to guess that Infinity Blade will use Kinect on Xbox One. Strangely, the game was originally planned as a Kinect title for the Xbox 360 until development was switched to the iPhone.

Created by Chair and Epic Games, Infinity Blade was intended to be a demonstration of what Epic’s Unreal Engine 3 could achieve on the Apple smartphone. Upon release, Infinity Blade was the fastest selling app in the history of iOS and it spawned two sequels.

Overall, we think the rumour is pretty reliable. It makes sense for Tencent to publish Infinity Blade as they own 40% of Epic Games. The promotional images for the title promise that all we be revealed this Friday on November 28, the same day as Tencent’s Game Carnival in Shanghai.
