Soccer Up! Revives Arcade Football for WiiWare
Posted by James Newton
Like Sensible Soccer, but with Miis
There's a real shortage of sports games on WiiWare, or quality ones at least, but the real surprise is that there's not a single soccer game available on the service so far. EnjoyUp wants to change that, with its upcoming Soccer Up! bringing fast-paced football to the service for the first time.
Formerly known as EnjoyUp Soccer, Soccer Up! takes its cues from classic football titles such as Sensible Soccer and Kick Off!, putting the emphasis back on quick passing, super-bendy after-touch shots and controlling the height and power of each kick.
Soccer Up! has one ace up its sleeve: the ability to use Mii characters in matches, the game importing them directly from the Mii Channel. You can even create and customise a team for your Miis, letting them take to the pitch and go for glory.
EnjoyUp has sent over the first screenshots and we'll have more coverage in the coming months.
The ultimate Soccer comes back to Wii!
Soccer Up! is a funny soccer game that allows you a total control of any action of your team players: Control the ball, dribble and shoot with effect to confuse the goalkeeper and score a goal!
The ball has inertia and will move freely over the field. Show your ability to control it and make short and long passes. Choose the height, effect and power before shooting to the goal. Become a soccer master and make your rival defenders tremble!
Each country has its national team. You can create your own team with the in-game editor: give it the name you like, choose its equipment and the most important, play with your Mii´s saved on the Mii channel of your Nintendo WiiTM.
Soccer Up! features:
-Free Control Ball, the ball has inertial free movement and you’ll need to control it first.
- Total control of height, direction and effect in each pass and shoot you make.
- Create your own teams using your Mii´s.
- Play the World Cup!
- Local Multiplayer option up to 4 players in cooperative or rival mode.
- Choose any available National Team.
