Video game publisher Mastiff announced today that they have teamed up with developers SCS Software and Kouyousha to bring the award-winning arcade- style, multi-player hunting series, Deer Drive, to Wii TM this fall.
Deer Drive meshes hunting simulation with arcade style pick-up-and-play action and pacing for an exciting gaming experience. Deer Drive is the first deer hunting game that features two player simultaneous play. Additionally, Deer Drive features a multitude of gameplay modes, including four player party mode, true-to-life sound effects, passive and aggressive prey, and a slew of hunting weapons.
"Deer Drive is an entirely different animal when it comes to hunting games," said Bill Swartz, head woof at Mastiff. "Most hunting games are slow moving simulations with frustrating controls. Deer Drive is all about shooting, all about pick-up-and-play fun and being a more accurate marksman and better hunter than your friends."
Deer Drive Features:
- Arcade-style multiplayer action hunting on Wii for the first time.
- Pick-Up-And-Play: Lock, load, and take down some bucks. Just be ready to defend yourself from aggressive mountain lions, bears, charging moose and other dangerous situations.
- Multiplayer: Play head-to-head with a friend or with up to four players in Party Mode.
- Optimized to work with Wii RemoteTM or the Wii ZapperTM accessory.
- Changing weather creates dynamic hunting conditions over varied terrain.
- Challenging for casual and hard-core players alike.
- Ethical hunting integral to the game
After checking it wasn't April 1st we have to assume that this game is for real, regardless of how painfully stupid it might be. Are they serious though "Ethical hunting integral to the game", oh please..
Why would anyone want to "pretend" shoot a deer in a video game when they can "pretend" kill 300 ft monsters in most other action shooters? Lame.
