[News] [Wii]

As my friends will tell you, I'm damn good when it comes to pool. It's mostly thanks to my father who owned a pub for 26 of my formative years and would whip me on the table when I could barely look over the edge of it. So it was my life's calling to beat him in a match, which I first did when I was somewhere around 20 I think. Pool eventually carried me through university with lots of free drinks and hours of entertainment. Well now I can sort of relive those days in the comfort of my own living room. 

SouthPeak Games announced details of its first Wii title, Pool Party. Scheduled for release in February 2008, Pool Party is a fully-featured pool and snooker simulation featuring a diverse range of game modes and settings and, of course, will make the best possible use of the Wii’s control system.

Pool Party will feature 13 different single player and multi-player game types, encompassing the standard 8-ball, 9-ball, snooker game modes, but including more exotic game types such as Rotation and Black Jack. Play takes place in a choice of 10 stylised environments, ranging from the seediest dive bars to opulent mansions and supremely luxurious yachts and players will also be stepping into the shoes of a range of distinctive characters, as well as facing off against formidable player AI. With shot placement, targeting and adjustments mediated through the Wii’s motion-sensing control system, Pool Party represents the most definitive pool simulation yet seen on Nintendo hardware.

Pool Party will be released for Wii in February 2008. No Rating yet but I imagine it will be a 3+ or 7+ (maybe E for Everyone in the states).

Well I guess we will see if it all falls into place and if I can run the table with a Wiimote. Here are a few screenshots that they released as well.
