Conker Reappears As Young Conker For The Microsoft HoloLens


Conker is getting a new adventure, and it relies upon Microsoft’s HoloLens. Microsoft has announced Young Conker will come with each Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition. It is a platformer where Conker runs around in and interacts with your environment. If the HoloLens is in your living room, then Young Conker turns that area into the game’s level.


Young Conker will adapt to players’ environments. The shape of the room will change the tactical approach to the game. He could end up running up a wall to get additional coins or go after an enemy, if there’s no room space for him. Character animations depend on context as well, with one example showing Conker experiencing vertigo when he gets too close to an ledge of a ledge. He’s also shown using a device that looks like a helicopter to fly up higher in the room.


The Microsoft HoloLens Development Edition costs $3,000 and will be released on March 30, 2016. People must apply with Microsoft to get a unit.
