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

    GriftGFX Considering the Volta generation basically isn't here yet... 4 generations later? Nah not even. (1 Hour ago)

    Melmoth @droezelke: that demo is surely running on a beefy rig to show what's possible. Actual games featuring the tech ofc won't look this good for many years. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: very nice. But they needed 4 nvidia volta cards to run it in real-time. So,, no, not for the near future. Probably in 3 or 4 generations later... (1 Hour ago)
