This Is Snooker
A few months ago, VooFoo Studios announced This Is Pool for the Nintendo Switch. And today, they announced yet another cue sports game for the console, called This Is Snooker. No release date yet, but here’s a trailer, some details, and some screenshots:
Former world number one for nine seasons, Hendry is widely regarded as one of snooker’s greatest ever players. Stephen features in the game as both an AI opponent and expert mentor in a series of exclusive ‘Cue Tips’ videos designed to help improve your real-life and in-game snooker skills. Players will also be invited to play-through a series of arcade scenarios that challenge you to recreate defining moments in the snooker legend’s record-breaking snooker career.
VooFoo Studios has worked meticulously with Hendry to recreate his unique characteristics and attacking style of play in-game and to enhance their ability to create totally believable cue-sport physics in a stunningly realistic simulation of one of the world’s most exciting and competitive sports. Also featured in the game is world-renowned professional snooker and pool referee, Michaela Tabb, whose familiar voice brings authority and authenticity to the in-game referee.
Wondering what happened to This Is Pool? Well, it will be included in This Is Snooker, and more precisely the Pool Deluxe Edition. Of course, it will also be available for purchase separately, if you’re not interested in This Is Snooker.
Play every major type of cue sport in six painstakingly-detailed locations with full pool and snooker career modes, mini games, trick shots, practice mode and extensive local and online multiplayer modes in a truly immersive cue sports simulation.
Here’s some screenshots for This Is Pool:
