In an official announcement from Crave today, Brunswick Pro Bowling for Kinect has said to been shipped to retailers!  According to their facebook post it was shipped on the 16th of February and it’s supposed to be on shelves today, but we are unsure of which retailers. Gamestop does show it in stock and someone reviewed it already, so its possible it is available now.

Brunswick Pro Bowling released

These are the details we gathered from the official announcement:

ANTA ANA, Calif., Feb. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Crave Games, the full-service publishing division of Fillpoint LLC, one of the videogame industries’ leading providers of online distribution, fulfillment, and e-commerce services for national retailers, today announced that Brunswick® Pro Bowling has shipped on Kinect™ for Xbox 360®, controller free games and entertainment on Xbox 360.

“With over eight million units in homes across the country, Kinect for Xbox 360 is a proven hit and Crave Games is excited to give players the most realistic bowling experience to date with the release of Brunswick Pro Bowling,” said Betsi Gijanto, Executive Vice President, Crave Games. “The Brunswick Pro Bowling franchise has a proven track record of delivering true-to-life game play that can be enjoyed by the entire family, and is challenging enough for the seasoned bowling professional.”

Sean Rash, a 28 year-old professional bowler on the PBA Tour and Brunswick Pro Staff player, is a six-year veteran and an official spokesperson for Brunswick Pro Bowling.

“As a professional bowler, this is the most natural bowling experience without being on an actual lane or having a bowling ball in my hand,” said Sean Rash.  ”With the accurate ball and pin physics and lane oil effects, Brunswick Pro Bowling delivers frame after frame!”

Brunswick Pro Bowling gives players the opportunity to compete in one of six highly detailed bowling environments each with their own unique lane characteristics. Choose between five different game-play options including Exhibition, League Play, Tournament, a Spares Challenge, as well as an online feature allowing players to join teams and compete in multiplayer matches against bowlers worldwide.  The kid-friendly bumper bowling option prevents gutter balls and extends the fun for a wide range of ages.  Customizable options include outfitting bowlers in authentic Brunswick gear such as shirts, shoes, bowling balls, and equipment used by professional bowlers worldwide.  The game also features technically accurate ball and pin physics and special oil patterns adding validity to the realistic bowling simulation.

Brunswick Pro Bowling is rated “E” for “Everyone”.
