As far as we’re concerned, the table-tennis mini-game included as part of the original Sports Champions is the best example of motion control available on any platform. As such, we’ve always longed for a fleshed out version of the PlayStation Move-powered activity with online multiplayer and an in-depth career mode. But could it actually ever happen?
Well, chatting to us as part of an exclusive feature, developer Zindagi Games has revealed that while the hypothetical title’s not about to become a reality anytime soon, it’s certainly an idea that’s been kicking around the office. “Internally there are a lot of guys who really love table-tennis too, so the idea of a standalone title has floated around,” the developer said. “Unfortunately, we don’t have any current plans for that game.”
Elsewhere in the interview, the studio gave us a little background on the activity selection process for the Sports Champions games. “We really wanted to show off the 1:1 technology [of the PlayStation Move], so we chose sports where we felt we could make a core mechanic with 1:1 control,” the studio explained.
You can learn lots more about Zindagi Games in our exclusive feature set to go live later in the week. In the meantime, feel free to share your support for our standalone table-tennis suggestion in the comments section below.
