HoopWorld (WiiWare)

Game Profile

Long ago, a lost civilization called the Elders, who worshipped the magical power of Nature, built a network of sacred temples around the world. Millennia have since passed, and the temples now lie in ruins. But their energy still resonates from the land, attracting adventurers from distant lands.

Drawn by the unknown force, friends have begun to rebuild the ruins into ball courts, knowing only that they must relive the time-honored test of the spirit of the Elders: the game now known as basketball. HoopWorld is a three-on-three basketball game with an arcade twist. Unique characters and beautiful natural locations set the stage, while fighting and random power-ups keep the game fast and rough. Choose your favorite team and basketbrawl across the globe to become the undisputed world champions. Play on your own or with a friend and see if you can beat the leaders of the HoopWorld global ranking.

Yes, basketball. ESRB: "This is a 3-on-3 basketball game in which players control teams of aliens, robots, samba girls, punk rockers, or burly men in contests on the court. But unlike basketball on the hardcourts or even pick-up ball, this version of hoops allows players to punch, kick, shove, and stun each other at will. Characters react to damage by falling down, crying out, or swaying as "dizzy stars" float above their heads; sometimes lights and explosion sounds accompany the hits. Samba girl characters are depicted in low-cut tops that expose deep cleavage, most evident on the team-selection menus screens."

Its announced to winter 2009... late :D
