If you're a fan of both handheld gaming and smashing paper-mache animals with sticks, the perfect game is coming for you: Viva Piñata: Pocket Paradise is scheduled for release this fall for Nintendo DS.
We won't comment on the title, but we will point out that, in the game, players will inherit a neglected garden on Piñata Island and tend to all aspects of cleaning the garden, growing and maintaining vegetation, caring for and breeding piñatas, as well as attracting new piñata species. The game features seven all-new piñata species, each with new requirements, houses and unique cut scenes
“Nintendo DS is the perfect platform for the Viva Piñata franchise because players can have direct interaction with the environment and their piñatas using the stylus,” said Bob Aniello, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, THQ. “We are thrilled to introduce Microsoft’s critically-acclaimed Viva Piñata series to an entirely new segment of the gaming community.”
It comes out this fall.
