At GamesCon in Colonge Microsoft has announced that a Kinectimals game is coming to Windows Phone 7 this fall.
In a press release they note:
Animal lovers across the globe will be able to bring home new furry friends in â€œKinectimals Now with Bears!â€ on 11th October, 2011, but the fun doesnâ€™t end there. Coming this Autumn, â€œKinectimalsâ€ fans can take their favourite cubs beyond the living room to care for and train while on-the-go. â€œKinectimalsâ€ for mobile will deliver all of the fun of the original â€œKinectimals,â€ using touch screen controls to feed, pet, play, train and nurture on-the-go from their Windows Phone while also enjoying Xbox LIVE integration of Achievements and Leaderboards.
Hopefully the feature will include more real-time interactivity than we have seen so far between Xbox Live on the phone and console, a feature which is sorely missing if Windows Phone 7 is to be rightfully seen as an extension of console gaming.
Microsoft aslo noted in the same press release that in-game purchasing of content is coming to Windows Phone 7.5, something teased so far in a few Xbox Live titles.
