Have you ever dreamed of becoming a jockey? Well now it looks like you will be able to (sort of) thanks to Champion Jockey: G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer, a new game that’s just been announced for the PlayStation Move for PS3, the Kinect for Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii.
According to an article on the electronictheatre.co.uk website, Tecmo Koei Europe has recently announced that the Champion Jockey game will be released across Europe sometime in September this year. However it looks like keen gamers will be able to test the game out a little sooner.
The Champion Jockey: G1 Jockey & Gallop Racer game will be playable at both the London MCM Expo that is taking place this weekend, and the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) at the beginning of June. The game uses the motion control capabilities of each system, to simulate the jockey experience.
Gamers will learn exactly how to use the horse’s whip and reins, as well as how to shift their body weight to ride their horse to victory. However, to truly master the Champion Jockey game, players have to understand the thoroughbred’s unique rhythm, its stamina, potential and preferred racing style.
The game also features live jockey rankings and online multiplayer races. There will also be a range of downloadable content available to players in the future. Do you like the idea of a horse racing game for the Xbox 360 Kinect and PlayStation Move?
