Sony has announced a sequel to 2010’s Sports Champions, featuring an expanded line-up including skiing, boxing, tennis, golf, bowling.
The game is in development at Sony’s San Diego Studio, and is due out this Fall. “Sports Champions 2 revives favorite features, including the surprisingly deep and challenging single-player Cup Play and the customizable Free Play mode, plus fun arcade Challenge rounds for each event,” said Sony Worldwide Studios producer Jeremy Ray.
“We’ve made a ton of improvements, too: Three-point PS Move calibration is no longer required (and it won’t sacrifice gameplay; player avatars can be created and customized per event; a new profile system enables everyone in the house to play together with their own avatars and settings; and the photo booth is more customizable and easier to use,” he added.
A new party game mode was also detailed: “You can play matches from any combination of events, including Challenge Rounds, and add up your score to see who reigns as the party champion. You can create your own match playlist, see photos and voices from each player during the game, and draw something humiliating (or nice!) on the hapless loser.”
