A World of Keflings, the upcoming game from NinjaBee, and the sequel to the smash hit A Kingdom for Keflings, is set to kick off Microsoft’s Games For The Holidays. The game will hit the XBLA on Dec 22, 2010 and will carry a very fair price point of 800 Microsoft Points.
I’m pretty excited for this one. A Kingdom for Keflings was a great XBLA title and I’ve been looking forward to the sequel for a while now. Raskulls and Ilomilo, will be the other two games of Microsoft’s Games for the Holidays promotion. Ilomilo is already out though so I’m not sure how much sense it really makes to include it in this promotion.
Apparently though, the three games will include cross-title features. According to the press release:
“All three games include unique content that unlocks if a player owns and earns an achievement in one of the other games.”
For more information on how the Games for the Holidays and the cross-title features will work, check out the full press release below:
A World of Keflings to Kick Off Microsoft’s “Games for the Holidays”
Release date and price announced
OREM, Utah – Dec. 2, 2010 – This holiday season A World of Keflings will kick off Microsoft’s “Games for the Holidays” for Xbox LIVE Arcade when it releases Dec. 22, 2010, for 800 Microsoft Points.
Along with Raskulls and ilomilo, A World of Keflings is one of three titles in the holiday-themed promotion. All three games include unique content that unlocks if a player owns and earns an achievement in one of the other games.
“The cross-title features are really cool,” said Steve Taylor, Keflings creator and President of NinjaBee. “If you buy Raskulls or ilomilo you can build homes for characters from those games in A World of Keflings. Then those characters live in your game world and you can kick them around with the rest of your Keflings. At the same time, if you own A World of Keflings you can choose to have a Kefling as your playable character in Raskulls or dress up ilo and milo in swanky Kefling costumes.”
As part of “Games for the Holidays,” players who purchase A World of Keflings will get early access within the game to buy the full versions of Raskulls and ilomilo before they officially release. Each of the three games can be purchased from within the others.
“Something all three ‘Games for the Holidays’ titles have in common is a strong local-multiplayer experience,” Taylor said. “A World of Keflings, for one, has this amazing dynamic split-screen system for local multiplayer. The second player can join and leave on the fly at any time.”
A World of Keflings also supports online multiplayer for up to four players over Xbox LIVE.
“Games for the Holidays” is the perfect collection of games to let players create, compete and collaborate together with friends and family over the holidays.
