Have you ever fancied trying out a winter sport such as downhill skiing, paraskiing or perhaps snowmobiling? Well now it looks like you will be able to without even having to leave the comfort of your own living room, thanks to the recently unveiled motion-controlled Winter Stars video game.

According to James Newton over on the kinectaku.com website, the Winter Stars game – which will be published by Deep Silver – is due to arrive sometime later this year, and will be available for the Kinect for Xbox 360, the PlayStation Move for PS3 and the Nintendo Wii / Balance Board.

The game features 11 different sporting disciplines including curling, paraskiing, snowmobile, figure skating, biathlon, freeride skiing, snowboard cross, short-track, bobsled, downhill skiing and ski flying. The Winter Stars game provides players with a choice of both single player and multiplayer modes.

It also comes with a unique ‘Family Mode,’ which enables each participant to choose their own individual difficulty level. Meanwhile, the Winter Stars single-player story mode offers gamers a campaign full of variety, which enables them to experience all areas of an athlete’s career.

Players can use their earned experience points to either improve their skills or buy new equipment. Although we don’t have a specific release date at this stage, we do know that the Winter Stars game will be arriving sometime in the fourth quarter of this year.

Does the Winter Stars game sound like a title you would go and buy?
