New, 5 comments

Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason will feature a wake racing contest worldwide as part of its Preseason International Championship, according to a post on Xbox Wire.

Beginning Feb. 1, Preseason players can compete to set the best race time for both in-game national and international leaderboards.

The challenge concludes Feb. 28. The world champion winner will receive an in-game gold-encrusted wake racer, while individual country winners will receive the title of national champion and a silver wake racer. Participants from the home of the world champion winner will also receive a wake racer decorated with the country's flag.

Those interested in participating must download the Kinect Sports Rivals hub companion app, as well as the Preseason demo. For more on Kinect Sports Rivals, read our hands-on impressions and interview with executive producer Danny Isaac.

Originally announced as an Xbox One launch title, Kinect Sports Rivals was later delayed to Spring 2014. Microsoft released Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason, a free demo, on Nov. 22.
