Pangya 2
Already a popular PC game overseas (where it is better known as Pangya), expectations were relatively high for Super Swing Golf when it was announced for the Nintendo Wii. However, right from the beginning, Tecmo’s adaptation seemed doomed, as Nintendo’s secrecy and personal agenda led to removal of one of the franchise’s key features: online play. Even though the reviews were decent (albeit somewhat mixed), Tecmo apparently thinks it can do better, as the latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu (brought to us via NeoGAF) reveals Pangya 2nd Shot for the Nintendo Wii.


Unfortunately, not much was revealed about the game. What we do know is limited to the fact that the game will hit Japan sometime this winter, a new volcano course (complete with lava-spewing geysers) has been added, and at least two new costumes have been added: Ryu and Rachael from PlayStation 3 game Ninja Gaiden Sigma. Of course, that hasn’t stopped expectations from rising once again, as fans are already clamoring for Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection support this time around...and hopefully Tecmo is listening.

No U.S. date has been revealed yet, but with any luck we’ll hear about it at E3. Of course, as more information continues to trickle out, we’ll be right on top of it. If we learn anything more about Pangya 2nd Shot, you’ll see it right here, so be sure to check back at VGGEN often!
