Kinect Sports Rivals is a Kinect-controlled bundle of sports events including soccer, climbing, wake racing, bowling, target shooting, tennis and more.

The game was initially slated to be among the list of Xbox One launch games this November, but will now release during Spring 2014, or Autumn in Australia, following a delay in July.

According to Microsoft the delay will allow Rare to further polish the Kinect title, which is the studio's first release for Xbox One.
