David Tennant Lends His Voice to Kinect Sports Rivals

When “Kinect Sports Rivals” launches for Xbox One this April, players will be guided on their journey by a voice that fans of the popular BBC series “Doctor Who” might recognize. For the first time ever, David Tennant, the tenth Doctor in the series, lends his voice to a video game as the narrator of “Kinect Sports Rivals.” David will talk players through the process of creating their Champion – a stylized, digital version of themselves that will be their representative in every competition against their friends, rivals, and the world.

“I’ve never done a video game before. This is a first for me,” David stated in a video interview about his voiceover work for “Kinect Sports Rivals.” “Rock Climbing looks good. I quite like the slightly unsportsmanlike element where you can grab a rival’s foot and chuck him off the cliff.”

Check out the video above to learn more about David’s involvement with “Kinect Sports Rivals” and discover what it takes to do a voiceover for a video game.

Whether fans are looking to tackle the new sports – climbing, wake racing and target shooting – or experience the re-imagined fan favorites – soccer, tennis and bowling – the power of Xbox One and the new Kinect will deliver next-gen motion sports gameplay like never before. “Kinect Sports Rivals” launches for Xbox One on April 8, 2014 in North America, Australia and New Zealand, and on April 11, 2014 in Europe.
