Konami of Europe has finally produced three screenshots for its upcoming EyeToy based sports title, U Move Super Sports. In Japan, Konami places great importance on the role of sports - there is a chain of Konami gymnasiums and sport centres, Konami exercise-bikes, even Konami dietary supplements for the nutritionally challenged. Over here though, UMSS is the only Konami offering that's likely to give players any kind of sweat-inducing cardio-vascular workout.
Containing 15 separate mini-games, U Move Super Sports takes advantage of the EyeToy as the sole control mechanism. As willing 'athletes' leap about the living room, they will be faced with a variety of sporting challenges. On the football front, there's a penalty shoot-out and a keepie-uppie type affair, as well as a more strategic 'Yellow Card' game. There's also a golf game called 'Hole In One', a rugby tackling level known as 'Rugby Crash', a horse-racing stage, and several more besides.
Whether U Move Super Sports manages to match the initial excitement of playing EyeToy Play or whether it flails like a drunken auntie attempting EyeToy Groove will remain to be seen. It's due out on PS2 this September.
