Microsoft announces new Avatar-using Live title

As you should know by now, next week Microsoft will be launching the New Xbox Experience, and has announced it will be releasing a new Xbox Live game to mark the occasion as well.

A Kingdom for Keflings will allow Xbox gamers to use their own customised Avatars, a new feature of NXE, for the first time.

Users will play as a giant watching over a city, giving orders to "Keflings" who build it up, and ensuring the civilisation runs smoothly.

The title was developed by NinjaBee, a division of Wahoo Studios.

"We wanted to make a city building game where the player is more personally involved instead of controlling an abstract floating hand," said Steve Taylor, President of NinjaBee.

He added: "A Kingdom for Keflings transports the player to a world they create and allows them to relax, enjoy the world and create a strategy that works for them."

The game is set to cost 800 Microsoft Points, and will be available on 19th November.
