THE BALL IS IN UBISOFT®’S COURT

LONDON, UK– January 21st, 2010– Today Ubisoft® announced the forthcoming release of Racket Sports Party, a new game that brings sports and fun together. Developed for Nintendo Wii, it makes five of the most popular racket-based sports available to players in the EMEA region on March 26th, 2010. For the first time ever, Ubisoft offers the possibility to play Tennis, Table Tennis, Squash, Badminton and Beach Tennis, all in one game. Compatible with Ubisoft’s Motion-Tracking Camera, already used in the fitness game Your Shape, and the Wii Motion Plus™ controller, Racket Sports Party delivers an attractive, interactive experience where family and friends will have fun serving, rallying, and smashing their way to the finals. Racket Sports Party will be available in two different packages: the game as a stand-alone and the game bundled with the Motion-Tracking Camera.

Racket Sports Party’s mini-games and tournaments transport players to forty spectacular locations, such as a Moroccan palace, a casino in Las Vegas, a crowded stadium, a modern loft in New York, or a cruise ship on the Nile… Everyone can get into the action with easy-to-use controls that accurately reproduce the player’s movements. Players have the option to use the Wii Motion Plus for more precision and impressive spins. Furthermore, this multisport game is designed to take advantage of Ubisoft’s Motion-Tracking Camera. This technology recognizes the player’s every movement and allows for controller-free gameplay, an unprecedented experience for Wii™ users.

Through its multi-player split-screen mode, Racket Sports Party makes it possible to collaborate with friends and relatives, or compete against each other in order to become the court champion. There are six different game modes in total, providing hours of fun for everyone. In addition, players have the ability to customize the face, body and clothes of their characters with over twenty-seven different looks and accessories. Competition has never been so fun!

With appealing graphics, numerous game modes, and stunning precision thanks to compatibility with the latest accessories, Racket Sports Party makes any smash, service, drop shot, or backhand as enjoyable as the real thing.
