Haunt has been announced for Xbox 360 by developer NanaOn-Sha and publisher Microsoft. While the developer name may be unfamiliar to you, you’ll know the guy making it. Masaya Matsuura is the creator of a lil PS1 title called Parappa the Rapper.

You may have heard of it before.

While he hasn’t done a whole ton in recent times (his most recent title was Major Minor’s Majestic March for Wii. Not exactly a smash hit. Though you may have played his iPod title Musika and he’s known for the PS1 cult-hit Vib Ribbon and its sequels), he is now back on the gaming seen with The Haunt for Kinect.

As you may have gathered from the title, The Haunt is a recreation of a haunted house, where you must navigate through it, and avoid ghostly enemies, using your body and gesture controls. The game is an adventure title and is full of puzzles to solve, traps to avoid, and monsters to flee.

While the game does have a creepy vibe, it isn’t exactly a mature experience as it will be more like a real haunted house. Scary but in a more “fun” way. And one scene shown had players pointing flashlights at the screen in an on-rails section.

Here is the Tokyo Game Show 2010 trailer.

Here’s the official description:

Gather friends and family to delve deep into a haunted house dripping with mystery – you’ll need every ounce of your wit and cunning if you hope to unravel the veil of rumors that hide its darkest secret. Dodge traps and outwit ghosts, ghouls and frights that lurk with glee around each and every corner. Take a deep breath and immerse yourself in “Haunt,” spooky fun for Kinect for Xbox 360.
