Take 2 Bringing Carnival Games To Wii

Take Two, under the guise of Global Star Software, have announced today that they will be bringing a new title, Carnival Games, to Wii this summer. The title is being developed by the fantastically named Cat Daddy Games. Take Two boast that Carnival Games is designed for families and children of all ages and will give gamers “all the excitement and fanfare of a day at the carnival”. *cough*

Carnival Games is designed for up to four players and features over 25 of the most popular games seen in midways and boardwalks throughout the world, including Clown Splash, Milk Can Toss, Nerves of Steel, Lucky Cups, Hoops, Day at the Races and the crowd-favorite Dunk Tank.

The moment you step into Carnival Games you can almost smell the funnel cakes as you are greeted by the barker and the sights and sounds of a classic carnival,” said Steve Lux, Vice President of Publishing for Global Star Software. “The game was built from the ground up to take full advantage of the capabilities of the Wii Remote™, so the flick of your wrist in ‘Alley Ball’ makes the difference between scoring an impressive 100 points and a lowly 10 points. The ability to pound the Wii Remote like a sledgehammer with the right mix of power and finesse in ‘Test of Strength’ determines whether you are a Contender or a Grandma.

Carnival Games is the perfect addition to the growing lineup of family games for the Wii,” said Steve Singer, Vice President, Licensing of Nintendo of America. “We’ve worked hand-in-hand with Nintendo to ensure we’ve maximized both the technical and fun factor for Carnival Games on the Wii,” said co-developers Harley Howe and Pat Wilkinson of Cat Daddy Games.

Anyone else just a little bit bored of minigames?
