World Championship Snooker gets John Virgo

Codemasters announces that Dennis Taylor will be joined by trick-shot expert John Virgo in its upcoming snooker game.


Codemasters has today announced that it has signed snooker celebrity John Virgo to appear in World Championship Snooker 2003. Virgo will join Dennis Taylor in providing commentary for the snooker matches in the game, and he will also host and star in the game's special trickshot mode.

The trickshot mode will challenge players to complete 20 different shots of the kind that John Virgo is famous for, such as the leap of faith, the caterpillar, the might red, and the impossiball. In addition to full snooker and trick shots, World Championship Snooker 2003 includes a complete pool simulation and a number of minigames.

World Championship Snooker 2003 is scheduled for release in April, just ahead of the real 2003 tournament. For more information, check out our previous coverage of all three versions of the game using the links to the right.
