Double Fine's Kinect Party, the all-body follow-up to Happy Action Theatre, will be released December 18 on Xbox LIVE and will be free until December 31, Microsoft has revealed.

In Kinect Party it will be possible to become a karate master, clone yourself, destroy a castle you built yourself, and go bananas with dubstep.

Happy Action Theatre is one of the more successful examples of a fun Kinect experience so Kinect Party could go down especially well this Christmas, especially as a free download.

Owners of Happy Action Theatre will also be able to play its 18 mini games from within Kinect Party.
