Want to become the next Karate Kid? Well, you might not have Mr. Miyagi to help you, but you do have your Wii and THQ’s upcoming All Star Karate.
THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) today announced that All Star Karate™ is currently in development exclusively for Wii™ and is scheduled for release this spring. All Star Karate, the first extension in the company’s All Star franchise, which debuted with the All Star Cheer Squad™ cheerleading video game in 2008, will challenge players to punch, kick and chop their way through the game with play features based on real karate moves. With optional Wii MotionPlus™ compatibility, the game offers a true full-body experience by allowing players to experience the life of a karate trainee who is under the guidance of a wise, but humorous sensei, and is on the path toward attaining a black belt, the highest achievement level in karate.
While you probably won’t be able to fight off any attackers after finishing the game, it does sound like a more active title than most of the Wii titles available now.
