Kinect Star Wars returns, launches April 3

Microsoft and LucasArts have apparently worked out the kinks in “Kinect Star Wars,” a flagship game for the Xbox 360 that was supposed to launch in time for the holidays.

The companies delayed the release in August, saying they had to work on the game’s quality.

Today they announced that it will finally be released on April 3, for $49.99. They’ll also start promoting it with demos this Saturday at some AMC Theatres that are showing the new 3D “Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace.”

Five modes are in the game, including podracing, “Rancor Rampage,” “Galactic Dance Off” and “Duels of Fate.”

There’s also “Jedi Destiny: Dark Side Rising,” which includes space battles, speeder bikes and duels with Darth Vader and others.

Microsoft’s also offering a limited edition “Star Wars” console in a bundle with the game for $449.99. The hardware looks especially cool, but “Kinect Star Wars” and Xbox are going to have a tough time pulling “Star Wars” fans away from EA’s online PC title, “Star Wars: The Old Republic.”

A few screenshots – can you guess which one is “Duels of Fate” and “Galactic Dance Off”?
