Developers Dispatch Games have today Announced that Penguin Wars will be arriving on our shores early 2018. First seen on arcade machines in 1985 and then again on Nintendo Gameboy in 1990 under the title King of the Zoo.
For those who don't know the aim of the game is to roll 10 balls across the square table to the opposite side. Sounds easy right? Well on the other side is your opponent and they will be attempting to roll balls back at you. Each player starts with 5 balls each and the player with the least amount of balls after 60 seconds wins. However the twist in that if you get hit by the balls coming at you enough times you can get knocked out and you can't move for a set time.
The new story mode will allow players to evolve there favourite players which can then be used for local and online play along with new game modes for veteran and new players alike to enjoy. Story mode will see gamers join Riley and his friends as they journey to Gira Gira land, collecting items and candy to evolve characters. Gira Skills players can earn to help give you an edge. With Singles, doubles and some different rules such as bomb throwing there is sure to be something for every player in this game mode.
VS Mode has two options, Local play and Online play. With a max of 4 people and a variety of game rules to chose from. Local play will feel more like the good old arcade days while online play will allow players with a more competitive streak to play against players worldwide with character they have evolved in the games story mode.
The Developers have also kept original music from the 1985 vision of the title and remixed and updated them with notable Japanese musicians to help the game fit in in more modern times. Penguin Wars will be available early 2018 for all platforms and will release in both the USA and Europe at the same time.Last modified on
