Milton Keynes - 505 Games today announced it has secured European publishing rights for Namco Bandai’s championship cheerleading game We Cheer™, coming to Nintendo Wii™ in Q1 2009.

We Cheer gives players the chance to jump, shout and shake it all about just like a real cheerleader. By using two Wii Remotes as virtual pom-poms, wannabe cheerleaders follow on-screen commands to perform a variety of high-energy spins, kicks and twists, while taking part in professionally choreographed routines.

What’s more, you can dance to some of the hottest music from artists of the past and present. So, whether you like to groove to teen sensation Hilary Duff, 70s disco darlings KC&The Sunshine Band or rock out to Paramore and Boys Like Girls, We Cheer has got something to satisfy your cheering needs.

If you want to take your cheering to the next level, you can play the special Workout Mode that helps you burn calories as you cheer and dance. Fitness buffs can choose the exercise program they want to take part in before hitting the gym with a specially chosen trainer who encourages them throughout the workout.

We Cheer will be exclusively available for Nintendo Wii throughout Europe in Q1, 2009.
