505 Games have found a niche with the world’s first controller free swimming game for Xbox 360 and for use with Kinect. Michael Phelps – Push the Limit has been developed by Blitz Games and is said to give you complete control over your virtual swimmer as you attempt to beat Phelps at his own game.

Publisher 505 Games are calling it “one of the most realistic and intense sports simulations ever created.” You’ll be using realistic swimming motions and techniques that helped the eponymous American swimmer win all of those shiny gold medals, but the room for error is, of course, often very small in such a sport.

Unsurprisingly, there’s a career mode. This mode grows in challenge as you progress and you’ll soon be swimming against the likes of Phelps himself. Michael Phelps – Push the Limit is currently scheduled for June.
