If you haven't gotten enough of MySims, you'd be happy to know that there will be two new titles to get your hands on in the near future. Electronic Arts has announced that MySims Party will be available sometime this year and we got a sneak peek at MySims Racing in its pre-alpha stage.
MySims Party includes familiar faces from the previous MySims and MySims Kingdom. It's a compilation of short and easy minigames that the whole family can enjoy together. Last night, I was able to mess around with a few minigames on the Wii and the Nintendo DS with the developers. The DS will include an entirely new set of games that revolve around the DS's features. For example I played a minigame where I had to chisel around a fossil and blow away the dirt. The Wii version seemed to have a wide variety of games that range from remote waggling to rhythm based swinging, as well as games that rely completely on chance. The presentation of the game is nicely done, with vibrant colors and festive backdrops. We should be able to provide a more detailed hands-on in the next few weeks when we receive a preview build of the game.
MySims Racing, even in its early stages, looked really good. It includes power-ups, drifting, road hazards and the ability to knock people completely off the track. Thankfully it also includes the ability to use any kind of controller figuration that suits your fancy.
We'll update with more information as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, be sure to check out some bright and shiny new exclusive screens!
