Want to learn about Viva Piņata? Then read Ellie's preview, which explains how you attract piņatas to come and live in your garden, how to fend off nasty piņatas, and how to make everyone sex like bunnies.
Alternatively, you can download a new interactive video thing Microsoft's uploaded to Xbox Live, where the actual piņatas explain themselves, in-game, fumbling with Xbox pads on Horsetachio's sofa. Cute.
The video is 754MB, and occasionally prompts you to select a piņata to explain various gameplay clips, including all of the things mentioned above and more.
The full game is due out in time for Christmas, with an accompanying TV series - already showing in the US - hopefully turning up over here in early 2007.
