Tennant Lends Voice to Upcoming Xbox One Game
When Kinect Sports Rivals launches next month on the Xbox One, Whovian gamers may encounter a voice they’ll find altogether familiar. That’s right! Providing narration and commentary is none other than former Tenth Doctor, David Tennant!
In his first ever voice role in a video game, Tennant will guide gamers as the next generation Kinect camera system scans a high definition image of the user’s likeness and then drops them into motion tracked sporting events — think Wii Sports, but hyper-realistic and no need for a controller. The game has been hyped as the one to silence the One’s critics.
Dear readers, will 10′s involvement make Kinect Sports Rivals a must have for you or motive to upgrade to an Xbox One? Or are you holding out for something more substantial?
(Writer’s note: I, for one, am solely hoping that Lego moves forward with Doctor Who so that we can eventually get a Lego Doctor Who video game. Now, an Xbox One Lego Doctor Who game would make me pull the trigger on a system upgrade without hesitation. That may just be me, though. As you were!)
