Do I really need to answer that?

Not really.

Where is it said you can do this -> "Players can play different activities AT THE SAME TIME" ??

Hey this game looks surprisingly fun. I like Animal Crossing and so I probably will like this game in a way. I might have to give it a try.

It probably isn't true for all the activities but probably at least for some that are in the same area. Look at the first screenshot in the OP.

Yeah, in the open world it can happen, I was thinking more on the mini-games side. Thought you read something.

Just noticed that the video was part of a playlist made for the game, there are another 14 activities shown in both single and multi-player: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLA83CF340EC1D08FC

Actually looks awesome for a "casual game"



This looks like Namco took a bunch of their existing Wii game engines - We Ski, We Cheer (? is there dancing?), Active Life, some racing game, cloned a bunch of Nintendo Wii stuff and stuff from other casual Wii games(and seems to have improved on them) reskined a lot of stuff (racing with cars, racing with skidoos, racing with horses/Tricks with skis, tricks with skates, tricks with waterskis) but at least those seem to be more than just cosmetic changes.
Basically, they just took all the 'best of' Wii casual games, smooched them all together and put them into an open world and then treated it with respect. The game looks lovely. Thought seems to have been put into everything and everything at least looks fun.
If this game is as good as it looks and as fun as previous Namco titles - this could be a major break-out hit. Especially since there's virtually nothing else out on Wii this year, this title could spread on a ton of word of mouth and 'played it at.... now I want my own copy' and be the must have holiday title for all the Wii owners who don't play Zelda.

Personally I was already highly interested but now that I've seen lightsaber fights and mini-golf (presumably both with WiiMotion+) I'm sold. If the reviews are decent I'll purchase it day one.

I really hope this game does well for Namco, they deserve it.

Europeans Rejoice!

Nintendo publishing Go Vacation in Europe

http://nintendoeverything.com/71755/

"Explore a vast and tropical party island to unlock 50 action packed activities for serious family fun

Feeling in the holiday mood? Maybe you’re planning a trip soon or you’re just longing to be back on the beach. Either way, Go Vacation will transform your living room into your very own family holiday destination. Set on the vast and tropical Kawawii Island, you can unlock 50 varying activities ranging in category from sports simulations to dance-based challenges either in single player or multiplayer mode, which will keep all ages entertained when the game launches exclusively on Wii(tm) in Autumn 2011.

You are free to explore the expansive Kawawii Island to check out the sights and sounds the island has to offer. Upon your journey you can explore four different resorts on the island, each of which offers their own unique activities. To start your first activity you will need to visit the Reception Desk and then travel to your chosen resort using the themed vehicles designed for each location.

During the activities you can play against the computer or have some friendly rivalry with up to three of your friends. Enjoy exploring the whole island, its four resorts and all the games together in a four play split screen mode Go Vacation is compatible with many of the Wii peripherals such as the Wii Wheel(tm), Wii MotionPlus(tm) and the Wii Balance Board(tm) which can be used in 17 different games. Take to your Wii Balance Board to master waves in the surfing activity or whizz down the side of a mountain in fast-paced snow races. Whichever control system you choose to use, you will be able to play against friends and family in a variety of fun ways.

When you have decided the type of activity you want to take part in, simply travel to one of the exotic resorts and get active. From surfing, beach volleyball and scuba diving in the Marine Resort to kayaking, horseback riding, rafting and clay shooting in the Mountain Resort. Fans of the slopes can take part in snowball fights, snowman making, snowmobile races and the ski jump in the Snow Resort and urbanites can choose pie throwing, hang gliding, mini golf and table hockey in the City Resort.

After jetting into Kawawii Island, you will be taken to the Reception Desk of the first resort, where you’ll be introduced to the Kawawii Island Stamp Dash. This special challenge, also playable in four multiplayer mode, will require you to collect 20 stamps by playing the activities to unlock your own personal luxury villa. You will be able to let your creative side out as you decorate and furnish your villa to your own particular tastes, with different styles and types of furniture available for unlock during the games.

The customisation doesn’t end there; you can create your very own character and customise their appearance using a wide variety of options available or simply choose from one of the original characters in the game.

Collecting Silver and Gold keys will help you deck out your new villa. Gold keys unlock entire furniture sets whilst Silver keys, earned by completing various activities, can unlock specific items. Gold keys are hard to come by so much practice and mastery of certain activities will be required.

The resorts are also packed with hidden treasure chests, mini games and collectable items that include new clothes and uniforms for your characters. Roam freely around the island to uncover these secret treats on your own or in the split screen four player mode. You will need to look out for red and blue balloons which contain Rumours that will help you find the treasure chests hidden around the island.

You can also choose to have a dog companion follow you around as you explore the island looking for treasure chests. Each dog can be personalised by talking to the local Dog Expert. Once you have customised your character and prized pooch, you can take holiday snaps of them and of your friend’s characters and save them in the Album Mode.

With fun in the sun, sea, snow and city for all skill levels and abilities, Go Vacation from Namco Bandai goes on sale across Europe on Autumn 2011. "
