Despite actually been a decent idea when it comes to gaming technology, the Kinect for Xbox 360 has been home to some of the worst games in human history, games so bad that its developers should be tried at the international war crimes court in the Hague. Fighters Uncaged is one such game that deserves to be lined up in front of a firing squad. And it looks like its getting a sequel.
Domain registrations for Fighter Within turned up last week, while Fusible grabbed a Google Cache snapshot that revealed more about the game. Developed by Ubisoft, Fighter Within is a next-gen title that is exclusive to the Xbox One and uses the new Kinect sensor.
There’s online multiplayer bundled with this game, as well power-ups and other tactical options according to the report. It’s worth mentioning that Ubisoft has been teasing a next-gen reveal for Gamescom this week, and Fighter Within could be that game. Here’s that full list of details from the cache snapshot:

If this is a sequel to Fighters Uncaged, I’m hoping that it’s in name only. Fighters Uncaged is one of the worst damn games that I have ever played in this generation, and I still wake up some nights in a cold sweat from a nightmare of waggly arms and fighting stances that had no effect whatsoever.
