PREVIEWS: Carnival Games
« on: July 19, 2007, 03:28:33 PM »
Stretch out your Skee-Ball arm, it's go time!

 The army of mini-game compilations on Wii has a new member to add to it's ranks:  Carnival Games.  First shown at Nintendo's media summit in May and then in a more fully realized build at this year's E3, Carnival Games seeks to recreate the carnival/state fair experience in a series of over 25 mini-games designed to be playable by gamers of all ages and skill levels.  Players will walk around a virtual carnival complete with the appropriately atmospheric sounds and visuals.  Events feature 4-player multiplayer and include classics like Milk Can Toss, Hoops, Skee-Ball, Dunk Tank, Target Shooting, and even Fortune Teller (no word on whether Zoltar himself will make an appearance).  Players compete to earn over 250 upgradeable virtual prizes like a goldfish or a giant stuffed animal for that special lady.    

The game is being developed exclusively for Nintendo Wii by Cat Daddy Games, who have a track record of creating pleasing, E-for-Everybody experiences like "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" for PC.  Co-developers Pat Wilkinson and Harley Howe have their priorities straight:  "We've worked hand-in-hand with Nintendo to ensure we've maximized both  the technical and fun factor."    

Carnival Games is due for release on August 27 via publisher Global Star Software (a Take-Two subsidiary) and will retail for $39.99.  Stay tuned to NWR for our review.

When I first read this, I thought it was Carn-E-val. Then I realize it was another mini games game. That's what the Wii needs, MOAR MINIGAEMS! Well, lets see since I did enjoy the Millionaire game. Wouldn't it kick ass if Carn-E-val made it on Wii?
