Battle the Jamaican Bobsled Team
on the Wii Balance Board in Downhill Racer
SouthPeak Games announced today that
it will be publishing Sled Shred for Wii. Focused on downhill sled racing on
everything from tubes and toboggans to discs and bobsleds, Sled Shred promises
to give players a thrilling experience as they try and earn their way into the
World Winter Games, racing with and against the world-renowned Jamaican Bobsled
team. Sled Shred is scheduled for release in fall 2009.
“We are very excited to bring this
unique racing experience to Wii with Sled Shred,” said Richard Iggo, VP of
Marketing at SouthPeak Games. “A sledding game is a natural fit for Wii owners,
and we can’t wait to see everyone using their natural body movements to steer
their sleds down those slopes!”
In Sled Shred, players form a team
determined to prove themselves in a quest to compete at the World Winter Games.
The Jamaican Bobsled team will be present in the game’s story mode to coach and
challenge players. Sled Shred offers a variety of different vehicles to race,
including inner tubes and bobsleds, on more than 10 different snowy courses.
Players can challenge one another or race together against the computer in free
play mode, and have the option of using the Wii Balance Board™ accessory to
control their vehicles as they race.
Sled Shred is scheduled for release
this fall. For more information visit
