Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational's Vita touch functions


1:45 PM on 12.13.2011



It looks like the Hot Shots Golf game for Vita finally has a name: World Invitational. I don't care what they call it. Just take my money!

This new trailer shows off the game's new touch functions. As someone that plays videogame golf just about every single day, I'm pretty jazzed about some of the touch features. There's a pinch feature that lets you move your character by touching both the front and back screens at the same time as if you were picking your character up. Front touch and back touch let you adjust ball placement. That's...the future!

The motion sensor lets you tilt the Vita on its side in portrait mode to get a better view down course. There's also some silly augmented reality that lets you put your golfer in the real world. 

Is it crazy that this is the launch game that I'm most excited about? Well, aside from Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

Check out my hot shot reel for Hot Shots Golf on Vita

I'm not good at much. I've been making music and playing piano for more than 30 years, so I'd like to think I'm okay at that. And not to toot my own horn, but I know my way around a kitchen. But beyond these things I'm near ...more

Review: Mario Golf: World Tour

It's been about 10 years since we've seen the Mushroom Kingdom gang out on the green, so it was high time for a new Mario Golf title. Camelot Software steps to the tee again, this time on the 3DS, bringing dual screens and and a new spin to their much-loved links with Mario Golf: World Tour. But the biggest addition this time around is online play. Were they able to drive this one home?more
