Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has announced today alongside a new video that Planet Minigolf will be getting PlayStation Move support beginning in September, 2010.
To quote: We are proud to announce that on September 19th, we will release a free update patch that will enable PlayStation Move support in our PSN title Planet Minigolf!
It's a match made in heaven, as adding PlayStation Move to the mix adds a new level of realistic and immersive gameplay to your favorite mini golf game. Check out the trailer below to see the PlayStation Move controller in action.
So, how does PlayStation Move make Planet Minigolf better? Well, think about how you play mini golf in real life on a course with a putter and you'll get the idea. Hold the PlayStation Move controller like a putter and putt away.
The guys in the studios have worked really hard on the putting gameplay mechanic and we've really nailed it. Depending on how hard you swing the club, you expect the ball to go a certain distance, so we took that concept and built around it so the physics of the ball and the force driving the ball are accurate. We can't really think of a better way to experience the PlayStation Move controller!
If you are familiar with Zen Studios, then you know that we are committed to releasing content and updates even after we ship the initial game. With that said, we invite you to stay tuned for another soon-to-be-made Planet Minigolf announcement...any guesses out there? We will leave you to ponder while you check out the new screens and video.
