Edge through the Alpine with Your Friends as Four Player Skiing Comes to Wii

SANTA CLARA, Calif., (March 3, 2008) – Step onto your Wii Balance Boardâ„¢ or grab your Wii Remoteâ„¢ and Nunchukâ„¢ and hit the fresh powder as NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced We Skiâ„¢, an exciting skiing game for Wiiâ„¢. Now up to four skiers can experience the sweetest mountain runs in the comfort of their homes as We Ski’s highly responsive and intuitive controls take them down the slopes like never before.

“We are thrilled to be the first publisher to offer a realistic and enjoyable skiing experience that can also support the new Wii Balance Board,” said Todd Thorson, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “NAMCO BANDAI is working to entertain both casual gamers and hardcore enthusiasts with a recreation of a beloved sport and pastime.”

In We Ski, up to four skiers can test their skills on more than a dozen runs from the bunny slopes to the most challenging Black Diamonds.

Players can ski using their own Miiâ„¢ or create a new character with a host of customizable options including changeable face and body types. Boosting the customization feature, additional skis, poles, goggles, and costumes can be unlocked.

  1. Oh, great, just what we need. We just bought a Wii. Fun but not good for someone with tendonitis.

    Maybe skiing would be a good thing.

  2. Hmm, is there a weight limitation on that sucker? I’d hate to think I’m going to get my exercise on and it cracks once I step on it.

    I can see why you want it though. That thing looks cool.

  3. Mel…if there is we’re both in big trouble LOL

    I did find a good interview with one of the guys who worked on it and they said it was based on scale technology.
