  • If you still hate this game, there is a mini-game that allows you to throw your avatar off a building! (aka bungee jumping to your death)
  • If you like what you see, check out this game from Prope!

Game is confirmed by Destructiod to release in the US this Fall.
Nintendo will be publishing in Europe, where it's called Autumn rather than Fall.

To be honest, this is pretty much what I wanted out of a Wii Sports 3, or an Endless Ocean 3. (more like Endless World, which I am digging)
Looks extremely varied and I love the idea of having an open world tie everything together. Also, grinding on buildings FTW!!

Truth is, if Wii had a game like this with a more sophisticated art style and a deep story to tie everything together it could have been my game of the generation!

This just moved up my list and made me sad the 'genre' wasn't explored more on Wii at the same time. Just imagine a game like this set in the Beyond Good & Evil universe, or a nifty James Bond experience with all the trimmings, or a sequel to Crystal Bearers with a longer story and more RPG elements...
I could go on for quite a while...

Special Bonus Video! Many thanks to TomaTito for the 2nd vid and more importantly for bringing everyone's attention to this game

One more video added by request: Racing!!

and some awesome screens I found on the game's site:

You don't need Wii U for asymmetrical multi-player:

You know, that looks like a solid party game to me. Even I am interested!



damn namco lol smashing i see.



Looks like alot of fun.



Looks great. Looks like a hybrid between adventure and sports/outdoors. Seems like a good game for kids to play with their friends or family.

Riiiiiiiiiidge Racer!!! lol, that was a wtf moment for me there.
For me to buy it, there would need to be some kind of story and plot around it. If this was how wind waker started, I would've enjoyed outset a little better. While you're playing and having fun like a kid you are, playing barefoot on the beach with your dog and just being you, somebody comes and steals your little sister. Now that's and intro!

"The lack of Wii releases is getting to you, seek help at once" lol

So are you hyped now? Been interested since day one :) The game has  50 activities, some of them look like their previous full games like We Ski (relaxing ski resort) and We Cheer (better than Just Dance). From the video it feels a lot like We Ski (it even has the same stunt sounds) but with loads more of option, you decide where to go and how to do it, awesome! My only concern, some activities might be bland, like surfing... but if the Ski or Dancing is anything like their previous game, it will be good.
