Darts games have had a mixed heritage on consoles, but we'll soon see if PlayStation Move can help their fortunes do a 180. PDC World Championship Darts: Pro Tour is set to land on PlayStation 3 on November 26th.
The PlayStation 3 version will also allow one-on-one online matches as well as future downloadable content in the trim, athletic form of new darts players, events and "darting accessories", whatever they may be. The press release also confirms the ability to control player celebrations, something which PlayStation Move could make very interesting indeed.
Have a gander at the screenshots below the press release.
