Hudson Entertainment’s list of sports appears to be an oddly eclectic one, even at a cursory glance. Aside from the badminton, snowboarding, archery, basketball, volleyball and soccer, Deca Sports will also include kart racing, figure skating, curling and supercross.
John Greiner, President and CEO of Hudson Entertainment, mentioned that Deca Sports would be released at an opportune time, given the current market trends :
We have seen tremendous growth in the casual sports gaming market in the last few years, and saw an opportunity that would be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Wii.
With Deca Sports, we wanted to offer a sports package that is unrivaled in terms of sheer number of available sports. More importantly, the game is easy to play, but offers layers of depth that even hardcore sports enthusiasts will love to play.
Hudson Entertainment plans to bring Deca Sports to U.S. Wii units by the summer of 2008.
