Those in North America will get to revel in the snow a little earlier, with the US release date locked for November 8th.

"Winter Stars entices gamers off their sofas with its high quality and easy-to-learn, exhilarating motion controls," reads the official blurb. "The unique 'family mode' offers a helping hand to beginners, thus making for a fun multiplayer experience with even chances for everyone. In single player mode, Winter Stars offers a campaign full of variety that allows players to experience all aspects of an athlete's career."

Winter Stars promises plenty of icy activities for you to dig your teeth into, including: paraskiing, curling, snowmobile, bobsled, downhill skiing, figure skating, biathlon, freeride skiing, snowboard cross, ski flying, and short-track.

The game even boasts a story-driven single-player campaign. Sadly, there's no snowball throwing deathmatch mode for first-person shooter fans.
