Hudson Serves Up Deca Sports 3 Announcement
Posted by Zach Kaplan
Will include MotionPlus support and online play
Hudson recently announced plans to release the next iteration in its Deca Sports series (known as Sports Island in the UK), Deca Sports 3. According to its press release, Hudson is including Wii MotionPlus support for all ten games, which may pique the interest of those unfamiliar with the series.
As you may expect, twenty sports after the original's debut, this collection has players competing in a variety of relatively obscure events. The list of ten games includes springboard diving, indoor volleyball, giant slalom, racquetball, air racing, kayaking, lacrosse, logging, halfpipe and fencing. Their website tells us that four of the ten titles – volleyball, lacrosse, racquetball and fencing – will be available for online competition.
If you’re a fan of odd sports and have been on the lookout for new games with Wii MotionPlus support, you may want to check this one out when Hudson releases it in the Fall. Until then, satiate your thirst with the all-new trailer, located at the bottom of this article.
