Instant Brain Includes DoDonPachi… With Kinect Support


Cave were in attendance at a recent Microsoft event in Japan, where producer, Makoto Asada, announced that his upcoming visual novel adventure, Instant Brain, will include DoDonPachi on the disc.


This version of DoDonPachi is an upgraded version that will feature Kinect support for optional hand gesture controls. If any other major changes have been made to the game, they haven’t been announced yet.


Instant Brain itself supports Kinect as well. A wave of the hand allows you to skip messages in the game. To open up the backlog of text, you raise your hand. If you want to access the options menu, that’s done by rotating your palm.
