Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 is in development at Montreal’s Hibernum Creations, if a new listing on the Australian Classification Board’s website is to be believed. The sequel to XBLA’s Fruit Ninja Kinect, itself a revamp of the 2010 mobile release, received a G rating on July 9, meaning it’s suitable for play by everyone.
Halfbrick Studios developed the first game in the series but is cited as the sequel’s publisher by the Australian government. Alleged new series developer Hibernum has in the past assisted in the development of major game releases such as Splinter Cell: Double Agent and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and been responsible for fully developing mobile titles like Disney Infinity: Action.
Fruit Ninja Kinect 2 is listed as a multiplatform title, which could potentially mean that it’s coming to both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One.
XBLA Fans has reached out to both Halfbrick Studios and Hibernum Creations for comment and will update this story should one or both companies issue a response.
