San Mateo, Calif.– April 13, 2009– Athletes of all shapes, sizes, and skill levels wanted! Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, announced that DECA SPORTS™ 2 will be released in Fall 2009, following the landmark success of DECA SPORTS, the exclusive title for Wii™ that shipped two million units.
“Due to the massive popularity of sports games on Wii, the demand for in-game variety and online gameplay has never been greater,” said Mike Pepe, Director of Marketing at Hudson Entertainment.“With online play and 10 new sporting events, we believe DECA SPORTS 2 will delight fans and new players alike.”
As the only Wii sports compilation game with Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection online multiplayer, DECA SPORTS 2 will allow players to compete against other‘DECAthletes’ from around the country. Featuring diverse sports such as synchronized swimming, motorcycle road racing, speed skating, ice hockey, mogul skiing, dodge ball, tennis, and darts, as well as lesser known international sports such as petanque and kendo, DECA SPORTS 2 will continue the original game’s credo of“the Everybody Sports Game.” Besides the new play, gamers will also be able to design their own teams, customizing uniforms, athlete skill sets, and even the looks of the athletes themselves.
