Microsoft has confirmed what retail suggestions yesterday led us to conclude: that in light of Viva Piñata's having gone gold, the game will appear on European shelves on 1st December. The US version is out on 9th November.

Rare's family-focused effort, which sees players trying to attract piñata animals to a customised garden, will be available for around GBP 44.99, with a special edition version - featuring a preview of the associated TV series now showing in the US, along with demos of Lego Star Wars II, Frogger, Time Pilot and Marble Blast - also lining up at that price in a special curvy box for a limited time.

For more on the game, be sure to check out our recent first impressions, and stay tuned for a full review as we close in on release.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
