Hudson Bringing ‘Deca Sports’ to Wii this Summer

Hudson Entertainment has announced Deca Sports is currently in development for release exclusively on Nintendo Wii this summer. Final pricing will be made available at a later date.

As the (silly) name implies, Deca Sports will include 10 sporting events ripe for Wii motion controls: Beach Volleyball, Snowboard Cross, Badminton, Basketball, Curling, Figure Skating, Archery, Supercross, Soccer and Kart Racing.

Confirming the obvious, John Greiner, President and CEO of Hudson Entertainment comments, “We have seen tremendous growth in the casual sports gaming market in the last few years, and saw an opportunity that would be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Wii. With Deca Sports we wanted to offer a sports package that is unrivaled in terms of sheer number of available sports. More importantly, the game is easy to play, but offers layers of depth that even hardcore sports enthusiasts will love to play.”

Sounds intriguing to us, similar to Carnival Games but possibly much deeper. So how will some of these games play? Well, according to Hudson, each sport in the game uses the Wii Remote in unique yet accessible ways. With a subtle swing of the Wii Remote players can hit and spike the ball in Beach Volleyball, while twists of the wrist produce a wild ride down the slopes in Snowboard Cross. In Figure Skating players need to keep to the music and properly time all of their jumps and spins in order to impress the judges while passing the ball and lining up shots is essential in Soccer.

All ten sports support both single player and multiplayer modes, in addition to a training mode to practice essential skills.
