THQ oils up Big Beach Sports

Casual-friendly minigame compilation exclusively for the Wii to hit the sand this summer; includes football, volleyball, soccer, cricket, disc golf, and bocce.

THQ has made a major push onto Nintendo's hot-commodity console the Wii in recent weeks. Two Thursdays ago, the publisher debuted its combative music rhythm game Band Mashups, where players arm themselves with sniper violins and flame-throwing guitars to best their opponents and change up the music style. Last Thursday, THQ continued to attack the underbelly of the Wii with the creepy-crawler action game Deadly Creatures.

Today, THQ said it would be adding yet another title exclusively to the Wii's library with Big Beach Sports. Slated for a global release in summer 2008, Big Beach Sports plans to bring fun in the sun indoors with a variety of sand-friendly physical minigames.

Aiming squarely at the casual Wii-gaming crowd, Big Beach Sports will include football, volleyball, soccer, cricket, disc golf, and bocce. Unsurprisingly, the game will look to take full effect of the Wii's motion-sensing controls. Further details on the title have not yet been revealed.

Sounds like DOA Xtreme 2 without the skin? But ya can't really argue with bocce. That's the lawn game of kings, folks.

It's nice to see THQ making exclusive content for the Wii from the ground up. The last two games announced sound good, hopefully this one too.
