SANTA CLARA, Calif., (May 2, 2008)– Make every day a snow day as NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today announced that We Ski™ has gone gold for WiiTM. Step onto the Wii Balance Board™ or grab your Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ and hit the slopes for single or multi player downhill action! Up to four skiers can experience the sweetest mountain runs like never before, as they enjoy We Ski’s highly responsive and intuitive controls. We Ski will carve its way into stores on May 13.
“NAMCO BANDAI has worked to create the most intuitive and responsive skiing game available, giving players a fully immersive experience,” said Todd Thorson, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.“We want players to feel the fun and intensity of real downhill skiing from the comfort of their living rooms.
It’s winter fun all year round as We Ski allows up to four skiers to enjoy a huge mountain resort with more than a dozen runs from the bunny slopes to the most challenging Black Diamonds. Not only can players shred through the trails using the motion-based controls, but they can also mix in the Wii Balance Board for a whole new level of realism. Players can even ski using their own Mii™ or create customizable characters that can be outfitted with different attire, poles, goggles and costumes.
The thrill doesn’t stop there, as a host of other activities will be available to enjoy including races, slaloms, moguls, freestyle challenges, ski school, and more! Players can even try their hand at night skiing while enjoying the spectrum of fireworks that color the sky. Skiing aficionados can also check out the game’s dedicated website, www.weskipatrol.com, to view interactive trail maps, check out photos, watch movies and download wallpapers, banners, and more!
