So, summertime kind of makes me want to go to amusement parks, but since all I really do is sit inside my un-airconditioned apartment and play video games, I feel glad that Majesco is looking after my interests with the announcement of Wonder World Amusement Park for Wii, shipping to retail today with 30 carnival-style minigames and five "interactive rides."
The park's got five themed zones: Spookyville, Fairytale, Space, Pirate and, quite logically, Carnival. There's a single-player Story Mode and multiplayer for up to three that I assume is local-only. Spookyville sounds rad, and while I'm no coulrophobic, this clown definitely spooks me a little.
Coyote Console's the developer; full details after the jump.
