Calling it: In the 360 version, aliens invade the Pinata paradise and slaughter countless innocent pinatas. You play as Sergeant Horsey pinata, a war veteran who must return to his violent past to stop the alien menace. Featuring brutal decapitations and eviscerations, candy blood, 30+ sweet weapons and an online multiplayer up to 16 players.
Several national retailers have had "Viva Pinata 2" SKUs for 360 for the last several weeks. No price and 1/1/2009 placeholder dates, so I had assumed they were junk. Recent rumours compounded with this seem to suggest it's legit.
Scene It 2 will be interesting. Will they do a dual-SKU release for those of us who already have 4 big button controllers? I'm still a little pissed that they never did any DLC for the first game, but it was a pretty enjoyable experience anyway.
Ninja Blade and Ninja Gaiden? That could be confusing to consumers. Especially if Ninja Blade is a kid's game.
"Hey, I'd like one copy of that ninja game. You know, the one for the Xbox."
*clerk picks up copy of Ninja Gaiden II, and shows it to customer*
"Is this what you are talking about?"
"Yeah, that's the Ninja game, right? I heard it's great for kids."
"I guess so. You do realize this is rated M for..."
"Just give me the game, I heard that this Ninja game was great for the kids, now give me a copy. I am in a rush."
"But their are two games with Ninja..."
"Give me the damn game!"
