Splinter Cell: Blacklist Confirmed, Features Kinect Integration

Ubisoft confirmed Splinter Cell: Blacklist for release in Spring 2013 at Microsoft's E3 2012 press conference today.

A more youthful Fisher was witnessed getting his violence on in the sandy Middle East, where we saw the Mark and Execute mechanic return from Splinter Cell: Conviction. The animations have clearly been expanded upon, with contextual kills, fluid in-motion assassinations, and more visceral takedowns.

Distressingly it sounds like Michael Ironside won't be returning to play the role of Fisher, not in this demo anyway, but Ubisoft’s Alex Parizeau and Max Beland did demonstrate new Kinect integration, with voice recognition used to distract guards.

Dear Ubisoft... Please don't turn Splinter Cell in to Kinect Happy Fun-time.

I have loved every SC game and I have pretty much hated every Kinect game. I just hope they leave enough SC in there to win through.

Makes sense ditching Michael Irdonside if it is a youger Fisher, but that does suck.
