«©NCSX» The Famista game series hails from the old school. The real old school of the late 80s. In the video game industry, anything that's roughly 2 decades long in the tooth can be considered ancient since four successive console generations can be squeezed into those 20 years. For a while, Namco allowed Famista to languish in limbo but started producing games again in 2003. As we close out the last week of April, the baseball season is in full swing and a new Famista game joins our growing Wii software library.

Family Stadium for the Wii features glossy and polished visuals. Whereas earlier Famista's featured pudgy baseball players and vanilla stadium graphics, the new release is sleek and shiny. The unique control mechanics of the Wii allow pitchers to whip the Wii Remote forward to throw a fastball while batters literally swing for the virtual fences.

A new feature is the "Cheering System" where up to three supporters armed with Wii Remotes can wag them to increase the likelihood of player hitting a pitch or knocking a batter out. A training mode allows players to practice batting, catching, running, and pitching by engaging in simple mini-games. Famista features a total of six stadiums and the Wi-Fi mode allows players to play ball against online opponents.

Region Lock-out
Please note Japanese Wii games will not boot on USA or European Wii consoles due to the inherent region-lockout on Japanese Wii game discs. A Freeloader is required.

NCS Game Notes
» When the bat hits the ball, a satisfying sound effect pops from the television speakers. The sound changes when you're bunting for a more muted effect.

» You can tell when your supporters are waving their Wii Remotes by the sparkly things that appear on the screen.
