Deca Sports pulls players off the couch and up on their feet for hours of entertainment playing ten complete sporting events. There is something for everyone, as Deca Sports offers sports activities such as Soccer, Beach Volleyball, Supercross, Kart Racing, Basketball and Snowboard Cross, and unique events not typical in most sports games such as Badminton, Figure Skating, Curling and Archery. The game is designed with pick-up-and-play intuitive controls for the Wii Remote and in three sports, the Nunchuk. Deca Sports also includes advanced controls for power spikes, curls, and mid air tricks for the gamer!
“Deca Sporta” was first released in March 2008 in Japan, followed with its release in the U.S. in May as Deca Sports. The title was then released in Europe as “Sports Island” in June of this year. As of August 1st, a total of 700,000 units have been shipped, and the game is anticipated to become a title that will be played by Wii owners for years to come.
With a subtle swing of the Wii Remote players can hit and spike the ball in Beach Volleyball, while twists of the wrist produce a wild ride down the slopes in Snowboard Cross. In Figure Skating players need to keep to the music and properly time all of their jumps and spins in order to impress the judges while passing the ball and lining up shots is essential in Soccer.
All ten sports support both single player and multiplayer modes. Up to 4 players can compete on one system and in several events, co-op on the same team. Single player modes include Open Match, Tournament, Deca Challenge and Deca League. And, what would a competition be without awards? The Locker Room feature allows players to keep track of their medals and trophies.
Up to four players can compete in each event, and, with its entertaining multi-player modes and varied gameplay, Deca Sports is an ideal game for players of all ages. Each sport is brilliantly realised and intuitive to play, with sports such as Football and Basketball featuring all the passes and skill of the real thing but without sacrificing immediacy. Similarly, the likes of Figure Skating and Curling demand precision from the player and a different range of skills, guaranteeing hours of entertainment as players attempt to climb the in-game leader boards at the expense of their friends.
Deca Sports is scheduled to release in North America on May 13, 2008 for $29.99.
