7w ago - Sony Associate Project Manager Nick Accordino has announced that Table Mini Golf is putting to PS Vita on April 9, 2013.
Below are the details, to quote: It's my pleasure to introduce you to a brand new game in the AR Play family of PlayStation Vita titles - Table Mini Golf (no, not table putt-putt - sorry Mid-west)!
Like the previous games in the AR Play series, Table Mini Golf is a bite-sized game with monster-sized scope - you'll use the AR Play cards to construct dozens of mini-golf courses across most flat surfaces of your choosing, and then pick one of three stylish characters to show off your putting skills in style.
Courses are split into one of two lively themes - Horror and Pirate - and come in both Rookie and Pro difficulties to satisfy those looking for a lighthearted and/or challenging good time.
These courses can be mixed and matched across two distinct modes, Free Play and Elimination, in which up to four players (or AI partners) can compete to see whose putting skills are above and below par. (See what I did there?)
Fear not, Table Mini Golf is not your standard game of nine holes - the good folks at Four Door Lemon have wedged in plenty of challenges, Trophies and extra goodies to keep you playing. Winning matches and satisfying certain...
