has announced today that Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational goes asynchronous today complete with new courses and characters!
Below are the details, to quote: If you haven't played Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational in a while, now is the time! As some of you may already know, we recently released a feature update (patch 1.05). This long awaited update adds the following features:
Turn Based Challenge
Too busy to join a tournament online at a given time/date? Not to worry! By introducing this "Turn Based Challenge" mode, you can now challenge your friends in an asynchronous competition and play head to head, hole by hole.
Players can now also set up 20 different parallel games at any given time. To avoid cheating, there are no re-dos, similar to Daily Tourneys. Short messages (like SMS) are also now enabled, as well as competitive score history between friends.
Additional gameplay updates include:
• Four-player stroke mode enabled in the multiplayer rooms.
• A slot mode added to the online/adhoc, enabling a slot machine style handicap system applied per hole to keep the game interesting in case there is an imbalance between player skills.
