Racquetball on Wii

Deca Sports 3 marks the first iteration of the series that takes advantage of the precision of the Wii Motion Plus peripheral to make the experience even more fun and easy to get into.

“Deca Sports 3 is a great way for families to spend time together in one wholesome, budget-conscious package,” said Dai Kudo, director of consumer products at Hudson Entertainment, which is the title's publisher.

“The same familiar, easy-to-use controls are back, allowing gamers of all ages to enjoy ten complete new sporting events, along with the addition of Wii MotionPlus,” the exec explained.

Deca Sports 3 will include ten different sporting event: springboard diving, volleyball, giant slalom, racquetball, air racing, kayak slalom, lacrosse, log cutting, half-pipe and fencing.

A multiplayer component has been included, both with local and online features. Four players will be able to compete in each of these events in the same living room.

Online, however, things get more interesting. Teams can be formed and customized, allowing the users to choose the name, colors, emblem, style and attributes. Unfortunately, only four competitions are available through the internet: volleyball, lacrosse, racquetball and fencing.

Deca Sports 3 will be launched on the Nintendo Wii on the 26th of October 2010 for the low price of 30 dollars. Hudson Entertainment is the outfit behind the current renditions of Bonk and, more importantly, Bomberman.
