Charge your saltshakers, gentlemen, for we have incoming. EA is developing a sequel to cult hit Mirror's Edge for the next generation Xbox, according to alleged industry insiders. Due to reveal at E3 2013, the game will also, reportedly, allow you to control returning heroine Faith with Kinect gestures.
For those unfamiliar with Mirror's Edge, this is basically tantamount to claiming that the next generation Xbox will feature an extending motorised prong, specifically designed to give people hernias. Mirror's Edge is an activegame. If you're not in the habit of leaping off cranes, click away before the merest thought rips your groin in half.The rumour comes care of Dual Pixels, which also claims the next generation Xbox will feature a controller with a detachable touchscreen. We're a bit suspicious about all this, frankly, but Mirror's Edge Kinect is demonstrably possible. Watchthe video.

Both EA and developer DICE have made a habit of dancing around the subject of Mirror's Edge 2, insisting that the franchise hasn't died a death, but unwilling to discuss how it will continue. "We haven't killed Mirror's Edge, we're actively looking at how to bring it back in the right way," EA Games Label boss Frank Gibeau commented last June.
"We love that franchise, the DICE guys really created something special the first time round and you've got to have a big idea to be able to do the next one and that's what we're working on."

Wish it would have come sooner. I think a Kinect mode would be cool where it's on-rails running and you have to use your body to turn corners, slide under things, climb over things, fight, and leap across gaps.

The original looked great. I wonder how the sequel would look using Unreal Engine 4.Thanks to Kwes for the signature!
I just hope this game won't be one of those "on the rails" thing. Well, we will see.Man who chase after bus get exhausted, man who run in front of bus get tired
