February 13, 2007 - Crave Entertainment today announced that it is under development with Brunswick Pro Bowling for Nintendo's new Wii console. PlayStation 2 and PSP versions are also underway.
According to the publisher, "Brunswick Pro Bowling will give players a detailed, realistic bowling-center experience, complete with authentic sights, sounds, and official Brunswick bowling gear." The title will also feature a variety of player and ball customization options.
The title's meat and potatoes, its career mode, will journey playes from amateur to pro as they compete over a year in 10 different tournaments. Brunswick Pro Bowling will also include a four-player multiplayer mode.
Crave also promises that the title will sport a realistic physics engine so that bowling balls have weight and momentum, a variety of Brunswick bowling balls, equipment and player apparel.
The Wii incarnation of Brunswick Pro Bowling will obviously take advantage of Nintendo's remote, very likely in the same way that Wii Sports bowling does. A wireless ad hoc multiplayer mode is planned for the PSP build of the game.

Wii Sports is proving to be a technical demo for game developers. I can't imagine game play being that much better. I can see graphics improving a bit with Brunswick Bowling. This should be interesting to see how game play can be improved.
