Ripstone Games, in collaboration with Lab42 and World Snooker, announced that Snooker 19 is out for Nintendo Switch.
Snooker 19 Is the most realistic simulation of snooker ever seen. Players can choose to take their best shot as part of an in-depth single-player Career Mode, an array of local and online multiplayer modes or jump online to master every official tournament on the World Snooker calendar. With 128 of the world’s best players to choose from, including Ronnie O’Sullivan, Judd Trump, Mark Selby and Ding Junhui, every major tournament is represented in the lead up to the coveted World Snooker Championship at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield; the home of snooker in the UK.
Snooker 19 syncs in real-time with the live World Snooker calendar, inviting players to battle for their place on the leaderboard to redeem exclusive rewards that can be used to customise their pro player. The game also includes a variety of Aiming Aid options that cater to all skill levels; from Amateur right through to Master.
Developed by Lab42, based in Leamington Spa, Snooker 19 sets a new visual standard for snooker video games. The custom-built advanced physics and AI engine was created to deliver the most true to life snooker experience, and has received critical acclaim from the snooker community. Everything has been meticulously re-created in game; from the detailed wood grain of the STAR Xing Pai tables to the world-famous arenas including the Crucible and Alexandra Palace. Players can expect a full TV-style presentation with realistic player likenesses created using 3D facial scanning technology, commentary from the Eurosport team and every official tour sponsor included in-game.
Snooker 19 is also available on Windows PC via Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
