In da club

Is there a band more fitting for a Clap Hanz game than Owl City? The twee electropop outfit have lent some sounds to the first English language New Hot Shots Golf trailer, which is identical to the Tokyo Game Show clip – albeit with a different title card. While the casual sporting action appears to be in place, we're still not sure about those bloody character models. Honestly, they look like Xbox avatars, don't they?

Still, we've been reading some web impressions of this from the PlayStation Experience show floor and it sounds like it's got some interesting ideas. The triple-click shot action is apparently very much intact, but you'll get into buggy races between holes and all other sorts of superfluous nonsense. There's no doubt that purists will probably be peeved by the addition of extra activities, but we're open to the idea.
