MIDLOTHIAN, VA– April 16, 2009– SouthPeak Games announced today that Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball for Wii has gone gold.
“Finally, friends will be able to choose their sides in this age old rivalry and face off to decide who is truly the superior force,” said Richard Iggo, VP of Marketing for SouthPeak Games.“I’m confident everyone that plays will realize that pirates rule the world. Anyone who says otherwise gets a ball in the face.”
Up to four friends can compete against one another as either pirates, ninjas, or as members of other iconic teams such as robots and zombies, each with their own unique techniques and abilities. Every match in Pirates vs Ninjas Dodgeball is completely customizable, allowing competitors to decide on everything from the arena you play in to game rules. In addition, Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball features a deep, single player story mode, and challenge modes to keep players in top ball slinging shape.
“Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball plays great thanks to the Wii controls, and intensifies rivalries because the throwing motions make it feel like you’re whipping balls at each other. I’m surprised such a classic playground game hasn’t been done on Wii before,” said Chris Stockman, Studio Director of Blazing Lizard.“I’m also surprised anyone would choose pirates over the mystical power of ninjas. Fools such as these are easily defeated.”
Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball will be shipping to stores on May 12.
