Bored today? Try Cheerleading with We Cheer!
Posted by Anthony Dickens
505 Games announce that Namco's We Cheer is out today in UK/Europe, apparently the girls of "Sheffield Storm All-star Team" are dead impressed.
“We’re more than happy to be involved with a game which will hopefully give more publicity to our sport, which is always growing in popularity in this country,” commented Coral Head, Storm All-stars founder. “I’m a bit of a gamer myself but this was the first time I’d played a Wii. Now I have no excuses!”
“I personally like the fact that the developers have taken the time to choreograph real cheerleader moves,” added Coral. “It’s a cool way for kids to get a bit of a work out too. We certainly had to throw ourselves about a bit on the harder songs, the lads here didn’t seem to mind too much though.”
Ah another game directed clearly at the hardcore gamer, sigh. Anyway, there are a lot of music/dancing related games so it was only a matter of time before Cheerleading made it through.
We Cheer allows all future all-star recruits to brush up on their techniques using two Wii remotes as virtual pom-poms to reach the top of their game. Following on-screen commands, players spin, shimmy and shake their way through a choice of 30 high-energy songs spanning over four decades of music. Taking cheering to the next level, the special Workout Mode helps to burn calories as you cheer and dance. Fitness buffs can choose the exercise program they want to take part in before hitting the gym with a specially chosen trainer who encourages them throughout the workout.
We're currently trying to convince Damo to put on his old cheerleading uniform from high school to give this one a full work out; pom-poms included!
