NBA Baller Beats is a new video game launching on Kinect for Xbox 360 this fall that lets players use a basketball to train, improve their ball handling skills, and compete against friends. As they play to the beat of an eclectic soundtrack, the Kinect motion sensor captures every movement of both player and ball to create a new basketball gaming experience. Jesse Sutton, CEO of Majesco Entertainment, said:

NBA Baller Beats introduces an unprecedented way to experience basketball through a video game like never before. Our innovative play mechanic combined with Kinect technology puts the ball in players’ hands, tracking both full-body gameplay and ball movement, so players are going to have to get up and actually play basketball to get in the game. Ballers and fans alike will love this game.

NBA Baller Beats helps you master ball handling skills, dribbling, and baller moves with a real basketball as Kinect technology tracks your every move. Players can work their way through single-player mode to unlock more songs and difficulty levels, practice their skills in Move School mode, and compete against up to 8 players in multiplayer mode. The game’s soundtrack features a mix of music across decades and genres, with tracks from Kanye West, Run DMC, Gorillaz, Them Crooked Vultures, and many more. Check out the official trailer below:
