Snooker 19 is a 2019 sports video game developed by Lab42 and published by Ripstone Games, based on the cue sport snooker.[1] The game was released on 17 April 2019 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and  Xbox One, with the Nintendo Switch version coming out on 23 August 2019.[2][3] Snooker 19 saw all 128 players from the World Snooker Tour appear, as well as venues from all 26 tournaments, including Alexandra Palace and the Crucible Theatre.[4][5]

Gameplay[edit]

Snooker 19 included all officially licensed tournaments from the Snooker season 2018/2019 season, as well as over 128 professional players from the tour.[6][5] The game will also feature licensed venues, such as the Crucible Theatre, or Alexandra Palace.[7][8][9] The game will feature single-player, multiplayer and online multiplayer.[10][11][12]

The game featured full likenesses for all tour players, and the Q School, the qualification events for the main tour.[13] Matches will provide in-game commentary by Neal Foulds, and David Hendon, as well as refereeing by Brendan Moore.[13] Multiplayer matches will mirror real-life tournaments, with in-game tournaments co-existing with events.[14][15]

Release[edit]

Prior to the release of Snooker 19, Joanne Williams (wife of current world champion Mark Williams) accused the game of "massive prejudice", with the release cover art of the game not featuring Williams.[16] Williams would comment that the decision was due to Williams being over 40 years of age, and Welsh.[16] This would lead to fans of the sport imposing pictures a naked Williams following his world championship win over the cover art for the release.[16]

Snooker 19 was released on 17 April 2019 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The Nintendo Switch version came out on 23 August 2019.[17][18]
