According to the latest issue of the Japanese videogame magazine Weekly Famitsu, Camelot Software (Mario Golf) has announced Wii Love Golf ... for the Wii, of course. The title will be published by Capcom in Japan, and will feature anime-style characters along the lines of what's seen in the Hot Shots series of games.
Not surprisingly, the Wii remote will act as a golf club, with players pointing at the screen to choose direction. When the player swings, the game will switch to a first person view that simulates the swing of a real golf club, with the ball on the floor.
The game is schedule for a Winter release in Japan, but there's no word on whether or not Wii Love Golf will make its way to the states. If anything, it's almost a given that we'll see a Mario Golf title released for the Wii, and it wouldn't be surprising if Wii Love Golf were the template for such a title. A golf title just isn't a golf title unless Wario yells "CAMELOT!" when you start it up.
