Sports Champions 2 European Release Date Announced by Sony

50°
108w ago - Following up on the North American date, today Sony Worldwide Studios Producer Jeremy Ray has confirmed a European release date for Sports Champions 2 as well.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello, this is Senior Producer Jeremy Ray with a message all the way from San Diego Studio to let you all know that Sports Champions 2 will be available from 31st October 2012 across the PAL region.

In about two short months you will be able to play the much anticipated sequel to the first Sports Champions, introducing Skiing, Boxing, Tennis, Golf, Bowling and the new Archery event.

Since we are getting so close I'd like to take this opportunity to give a little update on the game. Right now the team is primarily focused on squashing bugs and adding some last minute polish. The finish line is in sight and we are very excited to finally get Sports Champions 2 into living rooms all around the world.

Once done, we hope to be able to take a quick breather before getting back at it again with some post-release support. I hope to be able to give some more information about that after launch.

Here's a reminder of some of the great content that will be...

100°
109w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios Producer Jeremy Ray has confirmed today that Sports Champions 2 is slated to hit North America this October 30th.

Below are the details, to quote: Hi again, this is Sports Champions 2 Senior Producer, Jeremy Ray, and I'm super excited to finally let everyone know when Sports Champions 2 will be available here in the US - October 30th!

Since we're getting close, I've got a small update on the game for you.

We're giving the game one final coat of polish and squashing bugs right now, and I'm proud to say that we've surpassed many of our lofty internal goals. We can't wait until it's in your hands.

One example: the Avatar Creator feature has turned out so much better than we envisioned it. In fact, we are already starting to think about post-release support to make this feature even better - hopefully I'll be able to announce something on that after launch.

The creativity we've seen with the QA team on the avatar creator has been inspiring, and we're incredibly excited to see how much further the fans take it.





We are also getting a ton of great feedback on Skiing, Boxing, Tennis, Golf, Bowling, and the new Archery. Just...

Video: Sports Champions 2's Improved Archery Mode Hits the Mark

100°
110w ago - Zindagi Games Project Manager Colin O'Hara has posted up a video showcasing Sports Champions 2's improved Archery Mode for fans below today.

To quote: Sports Champions 2 will be releasing this fall for PlayStation Move, adding new sports such as skiing, boxing, tennis, bowling and golf, in addition to a much-evolved archery mode.

These six sports lend themselves particularly well to motion gaming, with some requiring strategy and finesse and others a blend of speed and reaction time.

But given the popularity of Archery in the original Sports Champions, we wanted to demonstrate how far we've come with Sports Champions 2. Read on for lots of new details!

One early goal was to eliminate the need for PlayStation Move calibration, which could be pretty annoying in the first game. We are now able to get enough starting data when you turn on the game or a controller, and we've integrated some of the information gathering into the games themselves - along with some corrective behind-the-scenes calibration - so you can just play.





But our primary goal with Archery this time around was to combine the competitive nature of the original game with the fast-paced, high-action style of Medival Moves:...
