Racquet Sports Coming to Wii with Camera Controls

While a multisport mini-game compilation is nothing new in the land of Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort, ASOBO Studio's upcoming Racquet Sports is looking to set itself apart from the crowd with an optional controller-free, camera-based control scheme.

Due out in March, the Ubisoft-published title will come bundled with a "Motion Tracking Camera," presumably the same one that comes with Ubisoft's Your Shape. nope

The camera-based controls are only available in single-player, according to Kotaku, with Ubisoft telling the site that, unlike the Xbox 360's motion-tracking camera Project Natal, the Wii camera uses "pixel clouds" to track player movement.

Of course, traditional controls Wii Remote controls will be available across the game's five sports--Tennis, Ping Pong, Badminton, Squash, Beach Tennis--with the game also packing support for up to four players, the Wii MotionPlus add-on, and a "Party Mode!" that promises "randomly selected wacky rules" plus "playful balls and birdies."
