Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Super Swing Golf Season 2 (Wii)

Using the Wii Remote, Super Swing Golf Season 2 allows players to take actual golf swings on 14 unique 18-hole fantasy golf courses.

Unique multiplayer “party” mode games like “Darts” and “Longest Drive” are designed to get players together for fun, competitive golf without having to carry around a golf bag. In the single player tour mode, players compete against computer controlled rivals in matches across Pangya Island, where the golfing takes place. Successful play allows for the unlocking of unique costumes and items. Some costumes include those worn by classic Tecmo characters such as “Mighty Bombjack” and “Rachel” of Ninja Gaiden®. Featuring eight playable characters, various selectable caddies, an abundance of collectable costumes and equipment Super Swing Golf Season 2 makes a great holiday gift.

“The holidays are a great time to be playing Super Swing Golf Season 2,” says Yoh Watanabe, Tecmo’s Marketing Manager. “Since families and friends are getting together, playing a game as fun and easy to get into as this one just makes sense.”

Super Swing Golf Season 2, rated “E10+” (Everyone 10+), is available now for the Wii for a suggested retail price of $39.99.

NCAA March Madness 08 (PS2/PS3/X360)

NCAA March Madness 08 creates new ways to play by challenging you to master the strategy and skills required to dominate down low, and replicates classic teams in college basketball history that make dream match-ups a reality.

NCAA March Madness 08 has created a strategic new gameplay experience called Dynamic Post Control that enables you to take complete control over running your offense through the post, and defending your opponent in the paint. For the first time, you have complete control over dozens of new offensive post moves, including finesse ones like an up-and-under, drop step, hook spin, jump hook, and pump fake, and the ability to combine moves together. Take command of the post on defense with strategic positioning to dominate down low -- guard your opponent man-to-man, front him to deny the entry pass or read the offense and go for the steal!

Finally, dream match-ups are a reality as NCAA March Madness 08 enables you to replay classic games in college basketball history. Featuring 74 classic teams, players can take the court and compete against teams that span decades like the 1972 UCLA Bruins against any of the great North Carolina Tar Heels teams of the 1980s, the Duke Blue Devils of the 1990s or the two-time defending NCAA national champion University of Florida Gators to determine the best team in the history of college basketball.

Experience the electricity of game night with the band playing fight songs, the student section leading the cheers and ESPN college basketball broadcasters Dick Vitale, Brad Nessler and Erin Andrews providing the commentary. NCAA March Madness 08 captures the intensity and atmosphere found in authentic college basketball arenas and your players will rise to the occasion or wilt under the pressure. The crowd atmosphere impacts the composure ratings of the players on the floor -- seniors and freshmen will handle the pressure differently – enabling you to fill up your Intensity Control Meter and change the momentum of the game.

The game features custom playbooks for each team through the Floor General Playcalling system, the EA SPORTS Lockdown Stick that enables your players to pressure the ball and force turnovers and a deeper Dynasty Mode™ that lets you build your school into a national powerhouse.

NCAA March Madness 08, rated “E” for everyone, will be available for the Xbox 360, the PS3 and PS2.
