Kinect accessory the Nyko Zoom lens has been given a UK release date.

The third-party add-on, which enables Xbox 360 users to play with the motion technology in 40% less space, is to arrive in the territory next month, MCV reports.

"We have high expectations for Zoom over the peak season and beyond, due to the excitement at E3 along with the massive opportunity in the UK," said Andrew Miles, marketing manager with distributor Interactive Ideas.

"The average room size is much smaller here than in the US, especially in flats and university accommodation."

The Nyko Zoom works by clipping onto the Kinect sensor, and does not require software installation or a power source. It enables up to two players to use Kinect in areas with limited space.

"Nyko should be applauded for assisting Microsoft in opening up the market for Kinect in the UK," Miles added. "Demand is already huge prior to release and will only grow rapidly once stock lands and consumers get to try the device for themselves."

Microsoft released the following statement in response to the launch of the device: "Kinect has been tested for performance, accuracy and environmental conditions thoroughly. Any modification can impact the performance of Kinect."

The Nyko Zoom will be available in the UK from October, priced at £29.99.
