Kinectimals Now With Bears Separate Add-on To Cost 1200 MSP
Written By
View author's profile

Microsoft is planning to launch Kinectimals Now With Bears this autumn, giving Kinect players yet to discover the simple joys of stroking a virtual pet another chance to pick up the game with a range of bears joining the cats already in the original game.

If you already own Kinectimals and still want the added bears without buying a whole new disc though, you can download the 'Bear Island' add-on at a cost. In an interview with Microsoft's Global Marketing Director, Michael Johnson, he confirmed to X360A that the DLC will cost $15 to download.

New Kinectimals guide Bumblina will be taking you to Bear Island when Kinectimals Now With Bears releases in fall 2011, with the Bear Island add-on hitting the Xbox Live Marketplace around the same time for 1200 Microsoft Points. Look out for our full interview with Johnson soon.

You would either have to be a complete idiot to buy that, especially for 1200 MSP or you'd actually have to have some sort of fetish for bears.

So expensive, all you'll be doing is stroking and patting air.

@5: Sometimes I, too, wonder why I'll so gladly fork over the $15 to placate her.

15 buck for a bear add on. That is a rip off but I guess if it keeps your kids in the house playing on video game instead of playing outside then it is totally worth it.

Is it a totally new campaign? It said 'take you through bear island' or is it just putting bears into the original game cos that would be extremely lame for $15.

i don't really care to play Kinectimals, but it would be awesome to get "Halo Now with Bears" or "Gears of War Now with Bears". GOTY stuff.

This is the kind of thing that really drives home WHY I spent 150 dollars on the Kinect in the first place...

A little pricey, but I think these Kinect games are harder to program than most DLC (which is usually just map packs anyway). Also, when I first heard about this I thought it'd be a separate $50-60 game and so $15 ain't that bad. To the point though, my son (who'se about 4 and a half) loves this game AND Joy Ride. In fact, he loves the kinect in general. There are very few video games which I can play with my son so I'll probably be picking this up....but I may wait for a price reduction (unless of course he catches wind of it:).

@1 orignal post:
"You would either have to be a complete idiot to buy that, especially for 1200 MSP or you'd actually have to have some sort of fetish for bears.

I would rather spend 1200 msp/15 bucks on having stroking air for virtual bears (btw, pandabear ftw!) .. then 1 of the cod bo map packs :S .. so if u dont want it.. dont buy it, and stop bitching :P waiting for the re-release with the bear addon, as i dont have the original kinectimals :P

I bet you still cant stick a shotgun in their face and cover the floor with bits of guts and bone or stamp on them, somnetimes you just wish you could kick them hard and send them flying. I love animals but all this cutesy cheesy niceness makes me evil

And 5 months later we will all hear of little Jimmy who tried to pet a baby grizzly while vacationing with his family at a national park and it's mother decided to pet him with it's claws in return.

I called it first.

This franchise is endless and could be a perpetual money maker. How long before they do sea animals (dolphins, etc)??
