Viva Piñata Xbox 360 high-res screenshots

Pikmin and Animal Crossing, prepare to welcome a new cuddly animal game to the family: Viva Piñata. Only this new colorful kiddie world will be living and breathing on Xbox 360 and not Nintendo’s Revolution.

Microsoft Game Studios and 4Kids Entertainment, Inc. announced a joint venture that will bring Rare’s new property to life both as a television series on 4Kids Entertainment and an exclusive Xbox 360 game this holiday season. Rare is best known for Conker’s Bad Fur Day and more recently Kameo: Elements of Power and Perfect Dark Zero so they certainly have the track record to pull off firmly planting a thorn in Nindendo’s side.

In the game, players will hope to attract more than 60 wild piñata to their own personalized real-time growing garden ecosystem both offline and with other players on Xbox Live. Enjoy the first round of screenshots then check out the initial game details here.
