Publisher THQ has announced a brand new Wii title that is in development and due for release this spring – All Star Karate.
The game is an extension to THQ’s existing ‘All Star’ IP, the first release of which was All Star Cheer Squad, a 2008 title concerning cheerleading.
All Star Karate will also offer optional support for the Wii MotionPlus, the use of which will apparently allow for “a true full-body experience”. Players can also choose to play with just the standard controller and nunchuck, or two WiiRemotes.
“In All Star Karate, players will follow the life of a young, martial arts novice whose noble attempt to save an elderly man from a pack of ninjas brings him face-to-face with a true karate master,” the press release reads.
“The sensei, a cantankerous old-timer, offers his services and teaches his new protégé the proper techniques and disciplines of karate and guides him toward achieving the black belt.”
