Using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers, and with the option to utilize the Wii MotionPlus for enhanced gameplay, players are prompted throughout the game to perform punches, kicks and blocks so they can progress in Career mode; spar with friends in Challenge mode, and accomplish various tasks in several multi-player mini-games.
All Star Karate is rated E for everyone and is available for a suggested retail price of $19.99. The game will also be made available worldwide in countries, including UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, France, New Zealand and Australia over the coming months.
About All Star Karate
In All Star Karate, players will follow the life of a young, martial arts novice whose noble attempt to save an elderly man from a pack of ninjas brings him face-to-face with a true karate master. The sensei, a cantankerous old-timer, offers his services and teaches his new protégé the proper techniques and disciplines of karate, and guides him toward achieving the prized black belt. In single-player Career mode, players will execute and master various karate moves utilizing the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, or two Wii Remotes, in order to attain the seven different colored belts in karate. Additionally, players can show off their hand, kicking and blocking techniques by sparring with a friend in Challenge mode or by creating their own move sequences to perform with the Kata Editor.
All Star Karate was developed by Blitz Game Studios based in Warwickshire, England. For more information on this game, as well as additional THQ titles, please visit www.thq.com
