Kinect Sports Rivals Release Date Announced, Watch Out for April 8

It would have been great if Kinect Sports Rivals release date was not bumped off the launch titles list of Xbox One as the preseason wake racing is pretty fun actually. Luckily, it’s time for the full game’s release. Microsoft has finally announced that Kinect Sports Rivals will be out for Xbox One on April 8.

This is the inaugural first party Kinect title for Xbox One so we expect it to be something good. It is a reimagined version of the Kinect Sports title that was released to Xbox 360 and comes with additional games.

Apart from remade versions of the Soccer, Tennis and Bowling games, the game will feature Climbing, Wake Racing as well as Target Shooting – I personally plan to spend some time on that last one.

Microsoft has outlined a new system of teams and captain that adds teams to the game. Each one of the three teams namely Wolf Clan, Eagle Legion and Viper Network will have unique equipment attributes.

Wolf Clan: Led by Vargu, these island natives come with a primal and uninhibited nature and a culture that prizes excellence.
Eagle Legion: This is a loyal and honorable group who have formalized the various events on this island and defeated countless teams in the process, they are led by Blake.
Viper Network:Led by Zara, they bring in a crafty and ambitious drive coupled with cooperate sponsorship.

Kinect Sports Rivals’ release date for North America, Australia and New Zealand is April 8 but the European market will get it a couple of days later on April 11.
