Pool Party to come to Europe in Spring ’08

Southpeak Interactive’s Pool Party has already hit stateside, without much fanfare (at all). I guess its mediocrity has been deemed worthy of crossing the pond. Southpeak issued a press release attempting to talk the game up for all you snooker fans. Do our European (UK) friends really call pool snooker?

SouthPeak Party With Nintendo
Definitive Pool and Snooker Title Coming to Wii in 2008
Friday 26th October/…SouthPeak Games continues to reveal its expansive 2008 catalogue by announcing details of its first Wiiâ„¢ title, Pool Party. Scheduled for release in February 2008, Pool Party is a fully-featured pool and snooker simulation featuring a diverse range of game modes and settings and, of course, will make the best possible use of the Wii’s control system.

Pool Party will feature 13 different single player and multi-player game types, encompassing the standard 8-ball, 9-ball, snooker game modes, but including more exotic game types such as Rotation and Black Jack. Play takes place in a choice of 10 stylised environments, ranging from the seediest dive bars to opulent mansions and supremely luxurious yachts and players will also be stepping into the shoes of a range of distinctive characters, as well as facing off against formidable player AI. With shot placement, targeting and adjustments mediated through the Wii’s motion-sensing control system, Pool Party represents the most definitive pool simulation yet seen on Nintendo hardware.

Melanie Mroz, Executive Vice President, SouthPeak Games comments “Pool Party is a major milestone for us, being our first title for Wii. In line with our philosophy of publishing games with an emphasis on distinctive individuality and outright fun, Pool Party’s light-hearted settings and characterisation make it a perfect title for us and we’re certain it’ll be a group-gaming favourite when released in February 2008.”

Pool Party will be released for Wii in February 2008

    “Do our European (UK) friends really call pool snooker?”

    No, they’re completely different games, although the English version of pool is different to the US version. Check Wikipedia for the diffences between all of them if you’re interested.
