Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise debut

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Viva Pinata is back for more and this time you don’t have to go at it alone. Co-op is the name of the game this time around as you build your pristine Pinata Garden. The second player can plug in their controller at anytime to access all tools, actions and activities, but also can collect magic. Coming along with the customary items from the first game are sand and snow fro those exotic pinata.

  • Thirty-two new species of piñata can run, crawl, fly and swim into your garden in “Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise.”
  • Piñata Vision. A never-before-seen feature called Piñata Vision allows players to plug in an Xbox LIVE Vision camera and interact with the game through the use of printed cards that feature a unique barcode. With Piñata Vision, gamers can simply flash a piñata card up to the Vision camera, and the content will drop directly into the game.
  • Using the new photo mode in “Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise,” you can snap, print and upload pictures of your unique garden or customized piñatas showing them off to your friends. You also can photograph your piñata and turn it into a piñata card, share it with your friends so they scan it and put it into their own garden using the Xbox LIVE Vision camera.

  1. Though I haven’t touched my copy of VP since launch week, I might get this.
    Skipped the last one because the demo didn’t impress me much.

  2. This is a must have. I expect you to play co-op with me Will.

    😉

  3. bs angel: Well, you’ve got about six month’s to convince me to buy this. I really want to try it, but that mini me on my shoulder has a strong case.

  4. Honestly, I would go as far as saying Viva Pinata was my favorite Xbox 360 game for a long time. It might still be.

    This sounds better in every way. It’s definitely worth trying. It essentially restored my faith in Rare after years of misadventures on their part.

  5. It’s definitely worth a rental. It’s probably in my top three games for the amount of time I spent in the single player campaign. I was a little worried when I heard they dumbed it down a bit but it sounds like you will still be able to play it the original way as well. I can’t wait!
