Posted on July 5, 2008, Chris Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise Slated for Early September
Mark your calendars for September 2 (for those in North America) or September 5 (Europe) if you’re a fan of Viva Pinata like me, because those dates have been confirmed as the release of Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise. Over 30 new pinatas, co-op and new gameplay modes are the headliner features for the game, which I already know will be embarassing to buy at the store just like its predecessor. It’s times like this I’m thankful to be an Amazon Prime member.
Unlike the original VP, you’ll now be able to explore outside the confines of your garden, which will be essential to nabbing exotic pinatas that won’t wander in on their own. You’ll also find some pinatas that prefer the cold (such as Pengums and Polollybears — are you embarrassed reading this? It’s difficult to write, let me tell ya.) or the heat (Camellos and Jameleons). To accommodate them, you’ll need to place snow or sand in your garden, just as you would with grass or water.
So, who else is not too ashamed to admit they’ll be buying the game, too? In all seriousness, I’m very excited for the game. I loved the first game on 360, so I’m very much looking forward to this refined version, even if it’s not a full-on sequel.
