Kinect title Haunt to launch on January 18

By  •  Media, Videos, News

Haunt, the Kinect-controlled XBLA game announced way back in 2010, will be available to purchase next Wednesday at the modest price of 800 Microsoft Points. Created by Parappa the Rapper developer Nanaon-Sha, the Xbox-exclusive title promises to deliver a horror experience the entire family can enjoy.

Using only body movements, players explore Benjamin Muldoon’s mansion; an eerie abode populated by fiendish phantoms that looks to have an air of Grabbed by the Ghoulies about it. It’s a story-driven experience that asks players to unveil the secrets of Muldoon Mansion whilst doing battle with its ghostly occupants. There’s also mention of ghouls that can only be vanquished by screaming in their direction. Sounds spooky. For more on Haunt, take a look at the Tokyo Game Show trailer below. Thanks to @lifelower for the heads up. Hit the jump for a video.
