Destineer brings the holiday cheer with We Wish You a Merry Christmas, a collection of mini-games and activities that will surely help families get into the holiday buying spirit.
Parents desperately searching for a way to connect with their children over the Christmas holidays need look no further than We Wish You a Merry Christmas, due out October 27th for the Nintendo Wii from Destineer and developer Panic Button. Six holiday mini-games will help parents and children bond during those long, awkward winter days, and the included Advent Calendar will ensure that the title stays poignant for one month out of the year.
At least the mini-games sound exciting? Just look at these descriptions:
* Santa's Sleigh: Collect presents with the Wii Remote™ and help deliver them to houses. * Hot Chocolate: A memory game in which you keep the elves warm by quickly pouring and delivering mugs of hot chocolate. * Candy Cane Lanes: As Santa, you bowl down a lane towards funny elves. * Present Catch: Play as an elf, catching all the bouncing presents and avoiding obstacles with the Wii Remote™. * Reindeer Games: Santa's reindeer hold a special flying contest to see who can lead Santa's sleigh each year. * Deck The Halls: Match 3 and win!
The excitement never stops! Well until Christmas is over. I have to admire the guts of a publisher that releases a title that revolves around one specific annual event. It reminds me of the Christmas stores that pop up all over Atlanta for three months out of the year and then go into hibernation in January. Both are bright and cheerful and exist only to capitalise on a beloved celebration.
