SEGA Announces Wacky World of Sports for the Wii

April 29, 2009

Get Ready for a New, Over-the-Top Wii Party Game!

SEGA® of America, Inc., and SEGA® Europe Ltd today announced Wacky World of
Sports™, an outrageous new sports game exclusively for the home video game
system, Wii™.  Wacky World of Sports brings some of the world’s most
obscure sports to the videogame world for the first time, and will hit stores
late 2009.
Wacky World of Sports takes players on a trip around the world to take part in
some of the lesser known sports of countries like Italy, the Netherlands and
Australia.  The ten sports featured in the game all start easy enough but
the more advanced a player becomes the more extreme the sports become! 
Tuna Tossing has been a popular sport down under for a number of years, but just
how far can a tuna be thrown in the comfort of the living room?  Drag out
an old armchair to take part in Furniture Racing, but make sure Grandma is not
still sitting in it because those chairs are fast!  And if that’s still not
bizarre enough, how about ironing a shirt while sky diving in the Extreme
Ironing event?!
“Wacky World of Sports brings together what is easily the most outrageous
collection of real life sports games SEGA has ever seen” commented Gary Knight,
European Marketing Director, SEGA Europe.  “The game brings a whole new
dimension to the party game genre, and is sure to become a family favorite. 
By utilizing the unique way of playing on Wii, Wacky World of Sports makes these
particularly unusual sports accessible to everyone!”
Compete in the mind boggling events of Wacky World of Sports with friends and
family in the Multiplayer Party Mode which allows individuals to compete against
each other to find out who will be crowned wackiest athlete. 
Alternatively, choose to play as one of a dozen larger-than-life characters in
the Tour Mode and travel around the world defeating current champions to become
the World Champion of Wacky Sports!

Wacky World of Sports will be released on Wii late 2009.  For more
