Crave Entertainment announced that World Championship Poker: Featuring Howard Lederer - All In for the Wii, continuing to feature the most innovative single-player career mode, which now includes series tournaments, mixed games, and recurring home games.

WCP: All In features some of the most recognizable and successful poker stars in the world, including Howard Lederer, his sister Annie Duke (who becomes exclusive to the World Championship Poker franchise with this installment), and Robert Williamson III. Joining the roster of this year's edition are noted international poker superstars Marcel Luske, Thomas Bihl and Erin Ness, who parlayed a victory at a Maxim Magazine office tournament into a seat at the 2004 World Series of Poker.

Over the past few years, the World Championship Poker series has developed a reputation for being a game intelligent and diverse enough to appeal to poker players of all skill levels. John Chechitelli of All- In Magazine called WCP: All In “the best poker video game available,” and said the game’s artificial intelligence is “strong enough to keep players at their best.”
