Viva Piñata Bursts Into Stores November 9, 2006Posted by dpcough in Xbox/ Xbox 360 General.
Today Viva Piñata bursts into stores in America.
Horstachios, Fizzlybears, Fudgehogs, Mousemallows, Elephanillas and Pretztails are just a handful of the 60 species of wild piñata, coming to homes this holiday season in “Viva Piñata™,” the highly anticipated Xbox 360™ game for kids of all ages.
“With the arrival of ‘Viva Piñata,’ we’re opening up Xbox 360 to new audiences and inviting more people to jump into the fun,” said Shane Kim, corporate vice president of Microsoft Game Studios. “This is a game that will have broad appeal. Families will play it together. Kids will play it by day, and, I’m willing to bet, their parents will play it at night. Even for the seasoned gamer, ‘Viva Piñata’ will be a great escape, and they’ll see it as a guilty pleasure.”
I am looking forward to this title a lot and plan to play it along with Gears of War. Look for my review next week on Viva Piñata. This game is sure to raise the bar for Xbox 360 children titles. There is a full fledged line of products planned including American Greetings jumping on board recently and a line of toys also. I wonder if John Porcaro will play it since he hypes it so much. I’m really excited, you should be to. Viva Piñata and Gears of War will change our gaming needs this holiday season forever.
