Those who read the blog regularly know I'm a huge supporter of veteran development house Rare, even post-Microsoft acquisition.
Though their latest offering appears to be positioned as a kids title, you gotta love the premise behind Rare's recently announced title, Viva Piñata!
The game and TV show will focus on living "piñata animals" that inhabit Piñata Island. Safe from the beatdowns of birthday-party revelers, the piñatas will go on "wild adventures" and "maintain a living garden ecosystem that grows in real time." Piñatas will also be tasked with attracting different animal species and propagating their own.
Nice! Can't wait to check this out at E3.
Even the screens look as beautiful as one would expect from a Rare game.
