It's the best we could do

In the upcoming slew of sports compilations, any game wanting to succeed needs something specific to stand out from the crowd. How about sports only set in the winter? That's Winter Stars in a nutshell.

The shots below show off some of the sports on the way, with paraskiing, figure skating and more all set to use Kinect's full body-tracking.

Winter Stars is due before 2011 slips into 2012, so we'll have a review later this year.


Deep Silver to publish motion-controlled winter sports game for next gen consoles

27th September, 2011 - Hampshire, UK/... Deep Silver, the games label of Koch Media, a leading producer and distributor of digital entertainment products, brings you Winter Stars - a sports game for Kinect™ for Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 with PlayStation®Move support, and Wii™ including Wii Balance Board™.

Winter Stars entices gamers off their sofas with its high quality and easy-to-learn, exhilarating motion controls. The unique "family mode" allows each participant to choose his or her own individual difficulty level, thus making for a fun multiplayer experience with even chances for everyone. In single player mode, Winter Stars offers a campaign full of variety that allows players to experience all aspects of an athlete's career.

This new title will be a breath of fresh air for the genre, enabling sports fans of all ages and abilities to compete with one another or against virtual opponents in no less than eleven disciplines: paraskiing, curling, snowmobile, bobsled, downhill skiing, figure skating, biathlon, freeride skiing, snowboard cross, ski flying, and short-track. In thrilling multiplayer action, up to four players can engage in dynamic online or offline competitions for championship titles, or simply enjoy the variety of winter sports themed mini-games on offer. The story-driven single player mode not only features an extensive career system and character development, but also a number of special challenges such as training sessions that provide arcade-style enjoyment in between events. Console athletes can use the experience points they earn to purchase new equipment and improve their skills in preparation for the diverse challenges ahead, and to support their team on its path to victory.

Deep Silver plans to release Winter Stars in the fourth quarter of 2011 on Kinect for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 with PlayStation®Move support, and Wii.
