Another upcoming Wii arrow-stomper, Ultimate Party Challenge
In addition to Walk It Out, which has been pushed back to October 20, DDR-maker Konami has another game for the old four-way dance mat waiting in the wings. Ultimate Party Challenge includes 40 (!) minigames that “test your rhythm, speed, and brain skills”. One of them (pictured) looks a lot like the mine-cart adventure in Active Life Outdoor Challenge, which challenges your balancing skills as you stand on either your left or right foot to steer the cart around curves.
Ultimate Party Challenge is set to be released in November, and like Walk It Out, is Wii-only. I’m getting the feeling that casual games don’t do well on PS3 or Xbox 360 unless they involve toy instruments.
