We just announced another WiiWare title, Family Glide Hockey, which should be hitting (virtual) shelves by the end of the year. For those of you that bought our other WiiWare title, Family Table Tennis, you’ll be happy to know Family Glide Hockey is made by the same folks at Arc System Works. Family Glide Hockey uses the same engine and characters from Table Tennis, but adds a few new effects and, of course, new gameplay. Here are some screenshots and a video for you to check out!
