Wow, two WiiWare card game stories
in one day! This one is likely to have more immediate payoff, however. In addition to Planet Pachinko
, North American gamers can (probably) expect Jungle Speed
to be available, for 1,000 points. Jungle Speed
is a card game in which players sequentially flip over cards until they reveal two identical cards, at which point they must race to reach for a totem in the middle of the table. The high-speed gameplay sounds like a potentially interesting Wii party game.
While the press release doesn't mention the developer, an OFLC listing
identified them as Next Level Games, the Canadian company behind Super Mario Strikers
and the new Punch-Out!!
This is likely to be true, as the game is apparently "produced with the financial participation of Telefilm Canada". Government-subsidized WiiWare!
Monday, January 19, High Voltage Hot Rod Show
, the racing game from the developers of The Conduit
, will go up on WiiWare, also for 1,000 Wii Points.Source
