Planet MiniGolf Rolling Onto The Network This Spring
Ah, minigolf. Who doesn't love a relaxing round of crazy putting with mechanical animals and fake sand traps?
Today, ZEN Studios has announced that Planet MiniGolf will hit the PlayStation Network this spring; they will be applying their "acclaimed ball physics engine" they utilized in the likes of ZEN Pinball, so the...uh...rolling ought to be accurate. And although it's a downloadable title, don't think for a second that it'll lack in longevity: the game will feature plenty of courses and a total of over 140 challenging holes, along with multiplayer options and a local hotseat mode, too. If you get really good, perhaps you'll want to participate in the Worldwide Challenge... Said Zsolt Kigyossy, managing director of ZEN Studios:
"Just as we have delivered the ultimate pinball experience with ZEN Pinball, Planet MiniGolf will serve as the ultimate arcade golfing experience on the PlayStation Network. Planet MiniGolf gives casual players and golfing aficionados alike everything they could ask for in a golf game, with wacky courses, character customization, custom course builder and global competitions."
We'll even get a cool Golf Course Editor so we can design and play on our very own courses! When completed, you can jump online and share them with other gamers, too. Oh, and perhaps we shouldn't be surprised to hear that it will boast support for the new PlayStation Move, although the latter won't be available until the fall. I hope it doesn't sound as if I'm mocking the game in question in this article; I freakin' love minigolf and I'm just trying to capture the casual appeal of the title. Just so ya know, guys at Zen.
