December 8, 2009 // 1:35 am - Team RamRod's Brandon Akiaten has announced that new High Velocity Bowling characters and Ball Packs are slated to hit PSN this week. A video is below, and to quote:

Happy Holidays Bowling fans! 2009 is almost over and we wanted to close the year out with a PAINful Xmas! That's right... Jarvis and Ginger are coming to High Velocity Bowling.

These are both available this Thursday 12/10 for just $0.99 each, and they each come with a new customized bowling lane and bowling ball! If that wasn't enough we also have two new ball packs coming your way also for $0.99 each!

For those late bloomers who haven't played the game yet, now's the perfect time to try it out. It uses the SIXAXIS motion sensors so you hold the controller and swing your arm like you're throwing the ball.

With 4-player local play and 2-player online, it's great fun for family and friends, and can be had for only $9.99 on PSN. In addition to the eight quirky, unique characters included in the base game, there are a bunch of other downloadable characters and ball packs available via in-game commerce or the PlayStation Store as well, on top of Jarvis and Ginger coming this week.

Here's the breakdown of the goodies coming this Thursday:



His love for pain, and fearlessness around danger has developed his strength as an extreme athlete. This has helped his power in the alley immensely. However, with recklessness comes carelessness. His accuracy isn't the greatest, but this never detracts him from going all out.


With her experience and proficiency at handling balls of all sizes, her accuracy in the lane is impeccable. But, since she loves the way she looks in her uniform, Ginger likes to take it slow down the lane to ensure she doesn't get herself dirty.

Here's a video of these two in action on their new lanes.

Ball Packs

Winter Holiday Ball Pack

The Winter Holiday Ball Pack was inspired by the gift of giving and puffy snow, including two showcase balls.

Animal Patterns

The Animal Pattern Ball Pack was inspired by the instinctual character of the world's wildlife, including two showcase balls.

We hope you enjoy all the new goodies from HVB family. Happy Holidays, and thanks again from SD Studios for all your support!

The characters looks like PAIN indeed, but according to Wikipedia PAIN was developed by Idol Minds and published by Sony Computer Entertainment.
