Family Jockey announced

Family Jockey announced

Namco-Bandai continues to expand its family type of videogames with the announcement of Family Jockey on the Nintendo Wii. It's a production set in the racing genre with characters governing animal mounts - mainly horses, but also lions, cows and giraffes. The different tracks will have power-ups to help you cross the finishing line first. No european release date was communicated.

Hmm a new trend for the Wii. Titles with the word "family" in them = sure hits.

Family Mortal Kombat, Family Alone in the Dark and Family Biohazard would be my first bets. Ooh and Family Primal Rage.

But the ponies, unicorns and zebras sure are cute. Did you know the Zebra is a more distant cousin to the native north american horse than humans are to chimps? Now where's that banana...

well if this isnt the epitome of what nintendo has become then i dont know what is. and whats worse is that this will outsell all the decent games 10:1. ninteno is destroying the industry thanks to the wii.

I'm pretty sure this is Namco-Bandai, not Nintendo

Also heaven forbid the youth market be tapped

About the game


What's up?

    Moonwalker @droezelke: Yep, absolutely no reason for me at all to get one right now. I'm good with Zelda on Wii U. If Mario had been a launch title though....... lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker this year because this was clearly going to be Sony's year, but then MS announced Scorpio and Mario Odyssey was announced. But next year should be fine, no big purchases planned, haha. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I told myself when PS4 had just released that I was gonna get one when Uncharted 4 came out, but when it came out I borrowed my brother's PS4 and finished it. So I was then planning on getting one (1 Hour ago)

    droezelke @Moonwalker: For Mario you have time until September. :-) (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I realize I'm going to need a PS4 for that and the plan is to get one next year. Just can't be this year with Scorpio, a new TV and probably a Switch for Mario too, lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker A JRPG like Ni No Kuni 2, Tales of series, Star Ocean even though the latest is bad. Not just JRPG either, games like Nioh, Nier etc (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @asdfg: Nah not those turn based JRPGs. Combat needs to be real time for me in any RPG. I just can't get into turn based battles. (1 Hour ago)
