Today sees the release of Mini Ninjas Adventures on the Xbox Live Arcade, so to celebrate that very fact, Square Enix has released a new batch of screenshots and a so-called 'lifestyle' trailer, that calls all ninjas to jump in front of their TVs to fight samurai armies using Kinect.

According to the video, you'll need to "master weapons and combos" and "channel kuji magic", which means plenty of jumping around and ninja flailing to "be a ninja". You can even upgrade little Hiro and boost his abilities. Something fun for the weekend perhaps?

Check out the video and six new screenshots in the gallery, then you can download Mini Ninjas Adventures from XBLA now for 800 Microsoft Points. You can add it to your download queue here.

I just did the 400/400 (2nd in the world) and what I can say is...THIS GAME IS GREAT ! Believe me and go download the demo, you will be surprised. The game can be done in 4-6 hours for the 400 and it's super fun !

I was first on TA saw you very close on second, dunno if we're first in the world tho. But I agree this game was very well done and achievements are very easy, one of the better kinect arcade games.

A definite purchase for me once I manage to create the amount of space necessary to use my Kinect for gaming. My home, combined with the shape of my furniture makes Kinect play no bueno. =/

The first game was one of those great surprises. The game was amazingly fun and one I'd recommend to anyone, regardless of the achievements. I'm definitely picking this one up when I pick up my next points card.

Actually looks pretty good I Think I might try this. Kinect Doesnt Suck. Some Games yes are lame but there are some fun games for it that I really like. Fucking grow up and stop wasting time saying Kinect sucks its not going anywhere and get ready to see more games evolve around kinect.

Looks like fun, I'll give the demo a shot. I really enjoyed the retail game.

Kinect haters: If you don't like it, don't play it. No need to complain all the time.

I am intrigued only because the first title mini ninjas was an alright title. Hope it is fun, but I say that in regards to every game. @4-why does it seem every post from you is negative?

@16 if your not registered to a leaderboard you can never claim anything, he can its the way it works as you have no proof you did it before him.

and I agree about the kinect hate alot of games are lame and kinda stupid but stuff like this, burnout crash fruit ninja works really really well

@17 i never said i did anything before him. All im saying is that leader boards are flawed. if i took the time to register to every leaderboard for a game i have completed i would be wasting precious game time

well you only have to register once which is Trueachievements as this site leaderboards do not even have 10% of the people ta does (I still use them though to keep track of my completetion) I agree it is a bit flawed but all records are flawed, (as only people who sign up or attempt at records are ever listed).

Loved the retail game, played through it twice.
Sad they ruined this by making it Kinect :(
No purchase for me...

@18 Yes leaderboards are flawed even on TA but they do upload automaticly for people you don't have to sign up on special leaderboards, everyone on the site and a lot of other people are on them and are based on date/time completed, I wouldn't see it as "world" but I do enjoy seeing if I can be nr 1 on the site so can in one way understand why that guy was happy about beeing high, but usually it's only a handful of people trying so agree it doesn't mean anything.

@ 21 it's out 25th of july
