Michael Phelps swimming game announced for Kinect

Olympic record holder Michael Phelps has teamed up with 505Games and Blitz Games to create a truly unique Kinect experience.

‘Push the Limit’ allows players master swim strokes and learn other techniques. In Career Mode, players compete in tournaments and travel to competitions.

Players will enter the Annual Games tournament where they will be up against Michael Phelps himself.

“Push the Limit is a fun, innovative, and physical way to game that is complete with elements that will challenge serious gamers, swimmers and casual fans,” said Phelps. “I’m really excited to help bring a one-of-a-kind swimming video game to the market that is reflective of my competitive nature and passion for swimming. This definitely isn’t your typical video game; much like my training in the pool, Push the Limit is about improving and mastering every race element – from controlling your adrenaline on the block to perfectly timing your finish.”

But come on Phelps and 505, how the hell are we meant to play this? – Lie on the floor and kick aimlessly?

Can’t see this selling well.
