A new Xbox One exclusive from Ubisoft appears to have been revealed ahead of schedule after domain name registrations and a Google Cache snapshot of an official website confirmed Fighter Within to be a "total-body combat" Kinect game.
In early August, Ubisoft said it plans "to share details on a new next-gen IP currently in development" during Gamescom, which takes place later this week in Germany. That game could well be Fighter Within. Here are some of the details taken straight from the cached page, which was spotted Fusible.
“Discover Fighter Within, the next-gen game that provides you the excitement of a real fight, throwing you into the most immersive total-body combat experience ever made. Enter a world of sweat, timing and training thanks to kick-ass motion recognition. Brawling with your friends will never feel the same again.
“Skills are not enough to win a match, superior fighting tactics will give you the upper hand. Use your surroundings to your advantage, collect totems and position them wisely in the arena to power up your attacks, choose the right moves and signature attacks that will undermine your rival and finish him off with a devastating final blow.”
It’s unclear how much Fighter Within will share with another Ubisoft Kinect exclusive, the poorly received November 2010 Xbox 360 game Fighters Uncaged (pictured), but we’re hoping its not much. We said in our Fighters Uncaged review: “There is nothing inside Fighters Uncaged that makes it worthy of your money or your time. The only other plus to playing this title is the extreme exercise you receive due to over-compensating for the game’s inaccuracy.”
