TGS07: Images of Viva Piñata: Party...

It's party time with Viva Piñata: Party Animals, a spin-off of the strategy game created by Rareware. This entry targets younger gamers with minigames similar to what is offered in Mario Party. The players can choose either Fergy Fudgehog, Paulie Pretztail, Franklin Fizzlybear or Hudson Horstachio as their character.

This is just what a party-game needs. Fuzzy, cute looking animals instead of those horrid characters in Fuzion Frenzy. Just hope the games are fun too.

Is this a XBLA game or a normal retail game. Judging from the screens and only 4 playable characters i would think that it's an arcade game...

Yes!, that's what I'm missing on the 360. Loved the old Mario Partys on the N64. Any word on the game mechanics?

About the game


What's up?

    Melmoth if they still pay royalties to crytech when using it they probably should (10 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Although I think it's kinda time to retire Dunia. (18 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @HR2: a lot of studios used modified UE3, games like Arkham Knight, XCom2, both being very problematic on pc. Interesting to see what those studios will do for their next games. (18 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @HR2: Ubisoft uses their own engines. They have like.. three solid in house game engines. (18 minutes ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 @Melmoth: agreed. speaking of Ubisoft, I wonder which engine they're using for the next Splinter Cell. a heavily modified UE3 like Batman AK or UE4? (28 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth yea, Bloodborne seemed to be the right time (new gen hardware) for such effects. like the parallax occlusion mapping on most surfaces. (33 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth watchdogs was first shown 18 months before the X1 and PS4 release, and a year before the hardware reveal. They predicted what the nextgen capabilities would be, but overshot it. (37 minutes ago)
