Globby blobby party

We've just gotten word from independent French development studio GlobZ that they've received a publication date for their upcoming DSiWare game Globulos Party.

Globulos Party is a mini-game collection featuring cute and colourful blobby critters that you guide with the stylus to play a full score of games including billiards, football (soccer) and ice hockey. There are 50 different playfields available and local wireless multiplayer is supported.

Globulos Party will be released on March 1 in North America with the European publication close behind on the 5th. Readers may remember that this game won the prize for best mobile game at the Milthon Festival du Jeu Vidéo in 2009.
