As hinted the other day in our news on the Home Sweet Home trailer, Canadian developers Big Blue Bubble are soon to be releasing a sports game. We really should have been able to guess which sport this would be given their nationality, but the press release below confirms it! Soon Hockey Allstar Shootout will be coming to WiiWare.
This potentially could be quite a fun game if you are a fan of the sport, as always have your say below...

Update: Big Blue Bubble were kind enough to send us two photos from a party held earlier this year where pilot testing for their upcoming game was done:
It pretty much looks like you'll just be doing penalty shootouts here. Lets hope there is more depth than meets the eye in the end product!
