Video: Microsoft demonstrates Kinect Disneyland Adventures at E3 conference

Video footage has emerged of the planned Kinect Disneyland Adventures game for the Xbox 360, after it was officially announced at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles.

The video shows two children demonstrating Kinect Disneyland Adventures live on stage as part of Microsoft's presentation. The game will enable users to explore a life-like model of Disneyland, and will also include a variety of mini-games based on different attractions in the park. It is expected to go on sale later in 2011, although no official release date has been confirmed.

The video, embedded below, shows off several of the mini games based on attractions such as Peter Pan's Flight and Alice in Wonderland. Each of the games revolves around players collecting coins, rather than fully recreating the attractions themselves.

DomainsPlayers.com reports that Microsoft has registered several domain names relating to Kinect Disneyland Adventures, some of which hint at future games based around other Disney parks. This includes KinectDisneyWorld.com, KinectMagicKingdom.com, KinectDisneylandTokyo.com, and KinectDisneylandParis.com. However, this is likely to be largely a defensive move at this stage to protect the domains from "Cybersquatters".

Microsoft is seeking to push the boundaries in usage of the Kinect beyond simple gaming to other experiences. Kinect Disneyland Adventures appears to be an example of this, with the "gameplay" being targeted towards a mainstream audience rather than hardcore gamers.
