Halo Anniversary Kinect features "optional"

"Core gameplay experience" unaffected.

Whatever form they take, the mysterious Kinect features 343 Industries has planned for Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary will be optional, the studio has confirmed.

News that the game will support Kinect had some fans' nerves jangling earlier this week, but a community manager for 343 popped up on the Halo Waypoint forums yesterday to offer a little reassurance.

"Just to let everybody know, the Kinect features we're exploring with Halo: Anniversary are optional and won't affect your core gameplay experience," read the post.

"Our mission, from day one, has been to deliver a faithful recreation of the original game, and we remain dedicated to seeing that through to completion."

The new take on the decade-old FPS classic lands on Xbox 360 on 15th November.
