2K Play, a newer label under the Take-Two Interactive umbrella of software companies, has announced a sequel to last fall’s dark horse hit Carnival Games is in development for Nintendo Wii. In addition, the original Carnival Games (read our review) is being revamped for a summer appearance on Nintendo DS.
Carnival Games: Mini-Golf will offer a departure from the original Carnival Games by focusing on one single game rather than a collection of mini-games. This opens the door for other “spin-off” Carnival Games titles in the near future.
Putt-putter wannabes will grab their Wii Remote and head to the land of dinosaurs, keep order in the Wild West or searching for treasure on an island full of pirates in Carnival Games: Mini-Golf. An action-oriented feature has been built in that up to four players can partake in simultaneously. Additional features have yet to be announced.
2K Play’s Cat Daddy Games will once again take the development reigns on the latest Carnival Games incarnation, which will be available in stores this fall.
“We work hand-in-hand with Nintendo on the design of our Carnival Games titles to make sure they deliver the best-possible gaming experience for their consoles,” said Harley Howe and Patrick Wilkinson, studio heads of 2K Play’s Cat Daddy Games. “These new titles in our growing Carnival Games franchise are fun, have true-to-life physics and deliver on the promise of the original: you can almost smell the cotton candy.”
