KOEI today announces the latest instalment in the hugely successful G1 Jockey series. The Wii’s unique controllers will enable G1 Jockey Wii to recreate the entire horse racing experience much more realistically and intuitively than ever before. With the Wii remote used as the whip and the nunchuk used to steer and drive the horse, this title will give gamers the opportunity to feel like a true champion jockey. G1 Jockey Wii is set for a release in Australia on June 28.

“Throughout the history of this series we have tried to make G1 Jockey feel as close to the real thing as possible. Thanks to the Wii controllers we now have the opportunity to bring the effort and skill of this incredible sport to gamers like never before.” Naoki Katashima, Senior Vice President KOEI Europe.

“We’re hoping that this game will make all horse racing games before it look like a right load of old pony and have gamers trotting down to their local store to back a genuine winner and be first past the post with the greatest horse racing game ever.” Will Curley, KOEI Sales Manager.

About G1 Jockey Wii

As well as giving gamers the opportunity to whip themselves into shape while striving to be the king of the final furlong, G1 Jockey Wii also contains an incredibly deep career mode where players get the chance to work their way from rookie status to horse racing legend.

This game will also give you the opportunity to breed your own horses and develop them into a stable of true thoroughbred winners. G1 Jockey Wii is all about making the most of your initial opportunities and building up your renown within the racing world. The more you and your horses impress the more chances to make it into the big time will be presented to you.

wow sounds good
Can't wait to get up, close and personal with a heap of horse arses!
that sounds great
you guys are delusional. horse racing is the one and only form of racing that is more boring than NASCAR since there is no explosions.
Plus manager mode....??

Not for me. But i know this game is successful in japan. i cant wait to see how it goes here
I will be getting this game.
That freakin pwns, so getting this!
Lol this looks like a good game but I reckon I will borrow it first because I'm not a big fan of G1 jockey
this will be cool as long as you can crash into other horses and have 10 horse pile ups (or something to that effect)
OMG i only just noticed the name of the news article.

10 points to Mr Wii
I think this game would be very popular in asia, not so much in other countries though.
oh yeah i'm there bring on the those ponies
