Have you ever sat and thought that what Kinect really needs is a swimming game? Neither have we, but clearly someone has, as publisher 505 Games has announced that Blitz Games is developing Michael Phelps - Push the Limit for Kinect.

Putting you in the tight Speedo trunks and swim cap of an up-and-coming swimmer, you'll rise through the ranks to eventually take on celebrated swimming star Michael Phelps and hopefully beat him. Utilising a high-speed Phantom HD camera to capture Phelps' movements in incredible detail at 1000 frames-per-second, the game aims to replicate the sport in all its intricacy. Seriously.

Touted as an intense and realistic simulation of swimming, you'll need to master a range of swimming techniques, which to the casual observer will likely make you look like a complete mental case in the middel of your living room. Still, if it helps improve your swimming and has you working up a sweat, Push the Limit could be an interesting prospect for Kinect.

“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."

There's certainly nothing else like it, that's for sure. We'll be able to find out whether that's a good thing or not when Michael Phelps - Push the Limit dives off the starting block in June 2011. Check out the first trailer and screens right here. Splash!
