Custom Play Golf for the Wii?


Source: CPG

Apparently Custom Play Golf, one of the most realistic golf games on the PC is making their way to the Wii Q1 2009. Called CustomPlay Golf 2009 it will be published by Lexicon.

From the forum we have a little nugget of information from Dean Baker of CPG:

It’s very early days for the Wii version but it will probably use a modified version of the engine and we would want to offer online play for sure.

The deal we have with LiveCaddie means we get courses licenses, Kungsangen came from them and some others will follow.

Check out the rest of the forum discussion thread.

Here is a little more information from Nintendic:

Lexicon is aiming to make the follow-up to CustomPlay Golf 2 the most feature-rich golfing title out there, complete with 15 full-sized championship courses; crazy and mini golf extras, driving ranges, and play mechanics based on realistic physics. There will also be a substantial customisation editor, allow players to create a player and shape it to their heart’s content.

“We are excited to be working with the CustomPlay Golf team as their experience and knowledge in the creation a golf game is exceptional. Lexicon Entertainment believes they can create a new unique benchmark as they truly understand the most important nuances of this great sport and we believe a golf title that will have gamers coming back for more,” said Christopher Allcroft, President of Publishing for Lexicon Entertainment UK Ltd.

“We are pleased to be working with a publisher who shares our vision of creating the best golf game going. Our goal is to create the most realistic golf game and to add as many options and varieties of the game as we can! We also look to work closely with our fanbase to keep improving everything we do and we will continue to strive for perfection. We strongly believe Lexicon to be the perfect partner to help us take our game to a much wider audience,” said Dean Baker, CustomPlay Games Ltd.

Personally, I think for the realism issue the swing mechanics need to be razor sharp. Perhaps with a niche golf focused game, they can get it right, but personally my feeling is the sensitivity (or insensitivity) of the Wii remote hardware is letting us down here.

What every it is, if we can get the licenses of all the courses with gorgeous graphics, and good online play, I’m pretty pleased. Do stay tuned for more Wii-Golfing news here at WiiGolf.net.

Once again a big thanks to Spikel for the heads up!

Pretty cool that the game can be played in Wii with motion sensor Wiimote. But some drawback is the graphic may not be as nice as PC because of the Wii system is not as powerful as our PC.

I have been playing the Tiger ’09, since last fall. Is there any location one can go for specific instruction (other than the training on the gane)? The training does not deal with putting and why at times the ball will not roll, as it should… or why seldom are you able to put back spin on a wedge or 9 iron. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

@superman: I think that is likely. Probably the best is what we can get on Tiger Woods 09.

@Terry: Yes! Right here. I will be posting a strategy guide soon. Do stay tuned.
