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:

PDC World Championship Darts (NDS/PSP/PS2/Wii)

Get the whole family together to play darts without leaving any holes in the wall, or play solo and challenge yourself to beat previous records.

“PDC World Championship Darts challenges players to throw the best dart game of their life in order to earn the best score and win the championship,” says Greg Lanz, General Manager of O-Games.  “This game engages the entire family by providing competition and fun all in one!”

PDC World Championship Darts Game Features:

  • Sixteen PDC Champion players to play as or to compete against.

  • Four Game Modes: Exhibition, Tournament, Career, and Party Games.
  • In Depth Career Mode, reflecting a player’s progress through the PDC calendar, featuring seven of the major PDC tournaments.
  • Three difficulty levels for extended play and learning curves: Amateur, Professional, and Master.

  • Game stats displayed in-game, at the end of match and store high-scores and trivia.
  • Live tournament sound effects including flying darts, audience and commentary.
