Kinect Star Wars features five game modes, including Jedi Destiny: Dark Side Rising, Podracing, Rancor Rampage, Galactic Dance Off and Duels of Fate.

Jedi Destiny Mode will feature "intense" space battles, Speeder Bikes and Landspeeder sections, as well as duels against iconic Star Wars villains.

The game also features the newly-announced Duels of Fate mode, described as a "battle-by-battle experience to sharpen your Jedi skills against the Dark Side".

Galactic Dance Off mode, meanwhile, contains a collection of Star Wars-themed pop tunes, allowing players to "take a break from honing their Jedi skills to battle Darth Vader on the dance floor or bust a move Solo-style".
