Global video game publisher 505 Games today announced the first game to release in its partnership with Michael Phelps, Michael Phelps – Push the Limit, one of the most realistic and intense sports simulation video games ever, coming to Kinect for Xbox 360 in June 2011. Take a competitive sports journey with one of the most celebrated athletes in history through Michael Phelps – Push the Limit, the first controller-free swimming experience to capture your true movements and translate them into accurate gameplay. The game, developed by Blitz Games, puts you in complete control of an up-and-coming swimmer entering the exciting and grueling world of competitive swimming in the hope of taking down Michael Phelps.
“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. In my world, it takes a lifetime of dedication to get one-hundredth of a second ahead, and I believe Push the Limit offers players a unique journey inside swimming that will challenge themselves as much as their in-game competitors.”
