The Only Pool Game For WiiWare That Lets Users Play Online!

REDWOOD CITY, CA - November 11, 2008 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, today announced that Pool Revolution: Cue Sports will be coming to WiiWare. This fun and accessible pool game can be played against friends in the living room or online, so players no longer need to worry about having enough space for a pool table!

"Pool Revolution: Cue Sports gives WiiWare fans what they want," said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. "Pool is a recreational activity everybody wants to play together, not alone, so we're positive players will be happy with the offline and online modes we included for up to four players."

Pool Revolution: Cue Sports features realistic controls where gamers use the Wii Remote just like an actual cue. The strength of the shot depends on how fast the player moves the remote. For those not quite ready to use an "actual" pool cue, the strength of the shot can be set by using the buttons on the controller.

Players can choose from the most popular types of pool for up to four players, including eight ball, nine ball, rotation, and snooker. An in-game explanation will help provide descriptions of anything you need to know! Once gamers get the hang of it, they can also try performing trick shots in Puzzle Mode. For players really up for a challenge, they can even set up their own! And, for those who feel they are true pool sharks, there is online play for up to four players in a Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection matchup.

Pool Revolution: Cue Sports is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.

Glad I purchased a mediocre pool sim before what looks to be a superior version comes out.

I really enjoyed Gameloft's Midnight Pool but it was lacking one essential thing which this has! Wi-fi enabled games FTW!

"No, we don't need another Mario game. We already have a good one. "

See how idiotic that sounds?



LinktotheFuture said:

I am really looking forward to this. I loved Midnight Pool's controls, but I am not a fan of the characters. This looks like a more serious game, with Wifi, and more game options!



LinktotheFuture said:

@Dazza - It was funny, true. I guess it just got old after a while. I don't regret downloading it, but I think I will like this game better.

This game looks so much cooler than Midnight Pool because you do not have the creepy characters. Go Pool Revolution!



gameking23 said:

Thanks maybe they could come out with a WiFi version of boxing. Kind of like the one on Wii Sports and call it Boxing Revolution.



LinktotheFuture said:

It would be cool if they rereleased Wii Sports with WiFi. All would be fun. Maybe Punch Out Wii will have a 2 player option that will include WiFi.

"I'm comparing mario games to pool sims."

"See how idiotic that sounds?"


I like the sound of that Wi-Fi. This definitely gets my vote over Midnight Pool.



Objection said:

@AlexSays Nice 0wnage there. Anyway, while we don't really need another pool game, this one does look very polished and it has wi-fi, right?



BrazCanMan said:

Another pool sim... the wifi feature is the only thing that interests me. I prefer going to the bar down the street and play some real pool.



Mayhem said:

If this can be like Virtual Pool way back for the PC, then I might just be game for a buy...



gameking23 said:

I wonder how much this game is going to cost. Hope it goes for 800 points, but I still will considerit at a 1000 points. Of course this all depends if WiiWare World gives it a good review. My guess is it will get an 8/10.



calculon said:

Yeah, and if they include random matches you can sit imagining playing against some seedy American git hustler (I love Americans really!)

Still not sure I want a pool sim, but I'd get this over Midnight Pool for the WiFi alone.



Wiiloveit said:

At first I didn't see the point in an online mode, but I'm starting to actually get pretty excited about this - and I can't stand pool games!



gameking23 said:

I've heard this game is suppose to come out in Europe the end of this month. I hope we Americans get around the same time to. Because I need a pool sim with WiFi NOW!
