Bonkers Japanese Game Show ‘Hole In The Wall’ Coming To Kinect

Kinect games have seemingly been few and far between since it’s much anticipated release. Unavoidable party games and dubiously-licenced exercise nonsense make up most of it’s current catalogue, but the device has seen very few titles that utilise Microsoft’s ground-breaking technology.

Kinect Sports and Dance Central (both launch titles for Kinect) arguably come the closest to taking advantage of the potential, but now it looks like some genius has discovered what can only be evidence of destiny.

hole in the wall is actually the name of the American version given in cartoon network, I believe, of this show.

Saw it the other day, and yeah it's a rip off of the japanese version, but fun anyways.

I'm pretty sure the Japanese version is hole in the wall too - just in Japanese...

I like the Japanese one better anyways. The American one lacks the liveliness of the Japanese one. I think they take it too seriously or something...

Would make sense lol I don't really know the japanese name of the show. I prefer the non forced wackyness that is presented in the japanese media. *At least that's how I feel when watching both*

I'm glad to see this being done with Kinect. Too many developers are taking large steps backwards to create action games and shooters and what-not to work with Kinect, but games like these are making due with what they've been provided with.

btw, the first comment is hilarious. Someone is a little too sensitive if they're going to mark that as trolling. Kool-aid Wall Smasher is an awesome idea for a game :)
+1 "Funny"

What do you expect from a Cartoon freaking Network producer?

I love this show but I dislike the Kinect. I still find the Cartoon Network show funny eventhough it's geared more to families trying to find an identity in what it is, however the Fox version was so horrible it shamed any version of the series. None of them compare to the hilarity of the Japanese original of course.

I'm torn :(
