Kinect Star Wars trailer shows gameplay

Rancors! Slave I! X-Wings! Force powers!

A gameplay video and details on Kinect Star Wars have emerged ahead of the game's appearance in Microsoft's E3 press conference.

US publication Entertainment Weekly has a pre-event exclusive on the game first revealed at last year's show, which promises a whistle-stop tour of locations from both trilogies, letting you experience both the light and dark sides of the Force.

In the Kinect Star Wars E3 trailer we see a Bieber-a-like waving his arms around attacking battle droids with a lightsaber; using gestures to dash forward and somersault; piloting a pod racer on Tattooine; assuming control of a giant, stomping rancor; and flying in an X-Wing.

The final sequence is a Star Wars nerd's wet dream, with R2D2 and C-3PO, Boba Fett's Slave I, Stormtroopers and more scattered across the desert as the Tattooine theme from Return of the Jedi plays.

Stirring stuff, undeniably but how well will Kinect respond to our Jedi skills in reality? Expect more on the game in Microsoft's press conference at 5pm BST today Eurogamer will be inside and livetexting throughout.
