Written by: / / No Comments


Microsoft has revealed that its upcoming Xbox One exclusive Kinect Sports Rivals will be released on April 8th in North America and April 11th in European territories. The publisher also unveiled a key component of the game, teams and captains, which had been kept under wraps until now.

In Kinect Sports Rivals players can choose to join one of three diverse teams which feature different equipment attributes and issue different challenges. Judging by the trailer below, each team has a captain and supporting member, and all the teams will operate under the watchful eye of ‘Coach’.

According to Microsoft’s press release, team Wolf Clan are “island natives with a primal and uninhibited nature and a culture that prizes excellence” while team Eagle Legion is a “loyal and honourable group that, under the leadership of Blake, have formalized the various events on this island and defeated countless teams in the process.” Meanwhile, team Viper Network is the “newest addition to the island, bringing with it a crafty and ambitious drive coupled with a corporate sponsorship.”

Here’s a new trailer showcasing all three of these teams and their motley members:

Kinect Sports Rivals features six activities including wake racing, climbing, bowling, tennis, soccer and target shooting. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this promising motion-controlled title.
