Vacation Isle: Beach Party for Wii

New Game Party instalment for June.

Warner Bros. has revealed a new Wii game called Vacation Isle: Beach Party.

Due June, this is the next instalment in the Game Party series, a family-friendly affair.

On Vacation Isle you'll be able to pursue all manner of tropical beach sports. There's surfing, wakeboarding, even dancing. Perform well and you'll earn Sand Dollars to spend on avatar customisation.

Up-to four people can play, and the Wii's balance board can be used to spruce up the board-based activities.

Two years ago, Game Party scored an incredible 1/10 on Eurogamer. We didn't bother with the series after that. Still, original-and-now-defunct publisher Midway revealed that the series had sold 3m copies as of February 2009. Apparently scores are not everything.
