Last week, Rare Studios very kindly invited me to their secret headquarters in the rain-soaked Midlands to try my hand at the Nintendo DS version of the critically acclaimed Viva Pi�ata. Viva Pi�ata: Pocket Paradise takes the cheerful-yet-sinister gardening simulation of the Xbox 360 title and shrinks it down onto Nintendo's handheld for (hopefully) a wider audience to enjoy.

Viva Pinata DS Announced

Who wants Viva Pinata on the DS? Microsoft do. Announced at Comic Con yesterday, Viva Pinata DS will see the original game concept (ie not the party game) ported over to the DS, with the main changes a new top-down perspective and what I'd guess is an improved control scheme. Best of luck to everyone involved. Viva Pinata was a good idea let down by the fact its target audience don't own 360s. They do own a DS, so maybe second time's a charm.

"Judging by what I saw, THQ's aiming to take what fans of the original Viva Pinata liked best and put it front-and-center, while also making it portable and by tying it in to the TV series in the hopes of opening frilly neon pinata guts and raining candy down on a whole new audience of fans."

Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise Hands-On

The release of Rare's Viva Pinata on the Xbox 360 in 2006 took some gamers by surprise. Due to the colorful nature of the papier-mache, candy-filled creatures, it seemed that the game was solely aimed at children. However, those who were brave enough to venture into the world of Viva Pinata found themselves pleasantly surprised because it's a game that can keep the younger audience engaged while providing enough depth for adults as well.

More Viva Pinata DS details

Viva Pinata DS will include more pinata species in addition to all of the species in the 360 version. New modes include Sandbox Mode, which will allow players to insert any type of pinata to their garden and let it run wild however they wish, and Episode Mode, which will be similar to the TV show in that it will be segmented in nature (instead of one long garden-building process). Best of all, Rare confirmed that the budding pinata-keeper in all of us would be able to swap pinata species via the DS' wireless communication feature.
