An edutainment game is reportedly being planned for release on the Korean Xbox Live Arcade. Late last month, we also reported that educational content is also coming to the Xbox Live Arcade service in India.
At last week’s Gstar conference, Xbox 360 marketing coordinator Dae Hwan Lim revealed to Gamasutra that the edutainment titles is part of Microsoft‘s push to bring more casual gamers into the Xbox 360 fold. “We’re trying to publish more games that can be played by anyone,” he said.
The edutainment title will reportedly be an English learning game. Six other Korean-developed Xbox 360 retail titles – Nexon‘s Mabinogi, StudioNine’s Superstar, Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom, Webzen‘s Huxley, Softmax’s Magna Carta and one other unannounced title – are also in the works.
