Kinect Sports Rivals gets a release date

Written by David Stellmack

Will it show off the new features of Kinect?

Microsoft has finally confirmed a release date for the Rare-developed Kinect Sports Rivals for Xbox One. While it was supposed to be a launch title for the new system, it didn’t make its launch date because it needed more time.

While gamers have been enjoying the demo of the wake racing from the title, on April 8th in North America and April 11th in Europe, Xbox One players will get to experience the full game which features a number of new events that make use of the Kinect that was included with the Xbox One.

The line-up of mini-games included in Kinect Sports Rivals includes wake raving, rock climbing, target shooting, football, tennis, and bowling. The title will include a new teams and captains system that will give players the options of choosing one of three teams with each team offering unique equipment and attributes.

Since we have not seen much to take advantage of the new Kinect included with the Xbox One, it will be interesting to see how the title makes use of the new features included with the new Kinect and if it will drive sales of the title.
