2 New Games From Nintendo!

21 11 2008

Okay, here’s the title to one of them: Garfield Gets Real.
And this is it’s picture: zgarfield-gets-real
Here is Nintendo’s description for the game:

Garfield is back with a new look. Tired with his routine as a comic strip star, Garfield escapes the page and heads into the “real world.” While living the low-key life of a real housecat, he learns his comic will be canceled if he doesn’t return before the newspaper goes to print. The video games will follow the storyline as Garfield plows through obstacles to make his way back home.

* Control Garfield in order to make your “Garfield Gets Real” movie as
* 7 Game Levels separated by cut scenes from the movie!
* 3D environment based on locations seen in the movie!
* All levels controlled by Wii Remote action
* Fully modeled 3D polygon environments

Also a new game on Nintendo is called “Family Party: 30 Great Games
This picture is showing the cover of the game: family-party-30-great-games
Nintendo says that the game is optimized for the Wii Remote and has more than 30 fun games to play and has the players fire laser guns, tackle obstacle courses, test their wit at memory games and more. You can play with up to 4 players. It seems like a pretty cool game.

There’s likely to be more games… I will post more as more come in.

Animal Crossing: City Folk

If life were an endless vacation, what would you do? Go fishing, collect shells or watch fireworks with friends? Build a snowman, exchange presents with family or decorate your house for the holidays? Take a trip to the city, go on a shopping spree or visit friends from all over the globe? In Animal Crossing: City Folk, life moves at a relaxed pace, but the world brims with endless possibilities.

• There’s always something new to do. In the living, breathing world of Animal Crossing: City Folk, days and seasons pass in real time, so there’s always something to discover. Catch fireflies in the summer, go trick-or-treating on Halloween or hunt for eggs on Bunny Day. If you’re in the mood for something a little faster paced, take a bus to a new urban city area that’s unique to Animal Crossing: City Folk. There you can catch a show at the theater or check out the sales at Gracie’s boutique. But if you don’t show your face back home for too long, your neighbors will miss you.

• Up to four people from your household can live and work together to build the perfect town. Design clothes and patterns, write letters and post messages on the bulletin board for each other, or invite up to three friends to visit your town using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. With the new WiiSpeak microphone, it’s like you’re all in the same room. The microphone sits atop the sensor bar and picks up the conversation of everyone in the room to encourage a more inclusive experience.

• Get to know your neighbors. The heart of Animal Crossing: City Folk is building relationships with the animals in your town as well as with other players. Befriend your animal neighbors by exchanging letters, gifts and favors. Animals can also move from town to town, bringing their memories and stories from their old towns with them. And since animals are notoriously loose-lipped, they spill all the juicy details.

• Express your personal style. Customize your town, your house and yourself by collecting bugs, fish, fossils, art, furniture, clothes and accessories. You can also go to the salon in the city to change your hairstyle and get a Mii makeover. Plus, if you design clothes in the tailor’s shop, animals will wear them and maybe even bring them to other towns.
