THQ has a new peripheral out this week for you to consider – the uDraw ‘Gametablet’ for Wii. It’s £49.99 on Amazon with uDraw Studio – a price that I don’t think is too steep seeing how much DJ Hero and Wii Fit were when they were first released. Joining it are Pictionary and Dood’s Big Adventure, available for £17.99 at pop.
I would imagine that most Nintendo fans though have been saving money for Pokémon Black/White. Yes, it’s the same old formula yet again only now the graphics have been overhauled with some snazzy special effect and there’s a colossal 649 Pokémon to catch. If you know what to expect, you probably won’t be disappointed.
On Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 there’s EA’s Fight Night Champion, which I don’t think I’ve heard a bad word about. Tecmo Koei are slipping out the apparently quite poor PlayStation 3-exclusive RPG Hyperdimension Neptunia while PopCap Hits Vol 2 – which features Plants vs Zombies – hits Xbox 360.
There’s also hairdressing sim Redken Busy Scissors on DS and Wii and Zumba Fitness for the latter. Zumba seems to be quite popular at the moment, so it might chart well.
Next week: Dragon Age II, Warriors: Legends of Troy, We Dare, Yoostar 2 and a very belated UK release for Stoked: Big Air Edition via Namco.
