Grease Coming to the Wii and DS


The hit musical Grease is coming to both the Wii and the DS; this could go somewhere horrible rather quickly.

505 Games has proudly announced that it is working on a videogame adaptation of [http://www.amazon.com/Grease-Rockin-Rydell-John-Travolta/dp/B000GBEWHA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1276552056&sr=8-1], the hit musical film starring Jon Travolta and Olivia Newton-John that was based on a hit musical play (but inspired an awesomely terrible sequel starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield). The game is set to appear on Wii and DS consoles.

The Wii version is billed as being compatible with USB microphones and the Wii Balance Board; which means that the game will involve not only singing, but dancing, too. The DS version will apparently involve dancing, too, and DSi owners will be able to upload photos of their own faces to in-game characters.

Grease: The Game is, at heart, a party game. Aside from singing, there's supposed to be a bunch of mini-games involving racing down Thunder Road and games from the graduation carnival seen at the end of both the play and the movie.

Both games feature a story mode, too, where players work to win the heart of Sandy. The Wii version is also set to feature 16 songs from the movie. Maybe, if we're very lucky, there will be an unlockable Tony Manero costume for the Danny Zuko character.

KILL IT WITH FIRE!

Seriously though, it's from 505 Games. "Shovelware manufacturer" is a more appropriate title than "Game Developer" for this company.

Prefacing this comment with the fact that I own a Wii and was playing it not 30 minutes ago...

Well, all the 45 year old moms need something to play after a Wii Fit session. The developers did a huge brainstorming session to figure out a word to tap into that demographic and after three hours they decided, Grease is the word. (God forgive me for using a Grease pun)

This is probably for all those 60 year olds who desperately want to look hip in front of their kids, but end up straining their back.

IT WILL NOT BE EOUGH!

NUKE IT FROM ORBIT!
If that fails, I have the Death Star on standby.

But seriously, this is going to end either badly or bloodily.
NO 505 Games has X-Wings to take care of that. We must think bigger.

but on topic it could be worse could be high school musical.

I have a message here for the makers of this game from all the Wii owners who want their beloved console to be treated seriously by the gaming media;

You are not helping.

I like Wii and DS. I like "Grease". Even so, it sounds like a bad combo... a bad, confusing combo.

Now watch, it's going to end up being an amazing, surprise hit that sets the standard of gaming for the next decade.
