Northamptonshire, UK. 10th July 2007. Pure Excitement. Pure Pressure. Pure Darts….Game On! Oxygen GamesTM is pleased to announce PDC World Championship Darts 2008– the eagerly-anticipated sequel to its first-to-format darts title launched last Christmas.
The second instalment of the hugely successful PDC World Championship Darts game features more PDC players, improved physics, improved animations, more game modes, full career mode based on the real PDC season, and for the first time, the game will be available on the WiiTM.
“We are delighted to be able to release the sequel this year, especially as it’s now on the Wii”, said Jim Scott, CEO of Oxygen Games.“We have worked really closely with the PDC to make this the most complete darts game ever, and the amount of new features in this title delivers a true-to-the-sport experience.”
Whilst the PlayStation®2 and PC versions both feature improved control systems, the WiiTM version takes the game to another level: Players throw the dart by using the Wii remote to mimic a real darts throw, with the
on-screen dart responding to the timing and smoothness of the release, as well as the accuracy of the throw.
The use of the Wii remote also enhances the darts party games which are included in all versions of the game.
Set for release alongside the staging of the 2008 Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship, the sequel aims to bring something new to the countless loyal fans of the sport, as well as opening doors for the new gaming audience.
PDC World Championship Darts 2008 is scheduled for release on PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PC and WiiTM in December 2007 - Game On!
