Left Field Productions is behind the crazy family-friendly poker game.
Left Field Productions, developers of the recent Wii game Nitrobike, announced that they are working on a new title for WiiWare called Battle Poker. The game is a variation on the popular card game and involves up to 4 players chaotically trying to get the best hand in a certain amount of time. It is controlled by the Wii Remote and uses its pointer functionality during gameplay. Left Field CEO, James Higgins, said that they were aiming to "create a fun game that could be played by the whole family - from the kids all the way through to the grandparents."
The game is nearing completion and should be coming to WiiWare sometime in the near future.
