Electronic Arts announced today that MySims Party has shipped to worldwide retail outlets and is currently available on the Wii and DS.‚  Designed specifically for the popular Nintendo platforms, MySims Party features the same winning mini-game formula and will include something for “every member of the family”.

As much as I love today’s ultra-realistic and overly violent titles, I can’t help but enjoy the warm and cuddly, open and inviting characters and environments found in the MySims games.‚  The Wii has more mini-game collections than it knows what to do with, but I enjoyed my time with the original, granted it was no party game, but the look and feel will undoubtedly return in Party.‚  Similarly, the ability for local multiplayer mini-game craziness will surely be alluring and exciting on the DS.

“We are very excited to deliver MySims Party and think that it will appeal to new and existing MySims fans with the engaging fun that it provides right from the start,” said Tim LeTourneau, General Manager of the MySims Franchise. “The game capitalizes on the universal appeal and trademark humor of the MySims characters, but also takes the franchise in a different direction providing a new way for players to interact through great multiplayer arcade gameplay.”

MySims Party for the Wii features 50 action packed mini-games for up to four players to compete in, testing reflexes, strategy, smarts and speed.‚  Every MySim possesses different character attributes including variances in luck, strength, speed, and endurance; therefore strategically assembling your four man team will have lasting implications.‚  Party gets you off the couch with various mini-games including busting a move in “Go Go Dancing,” nailing the trick in “Extreme Snowboarding Challenege” and outrunning a giant robot in “Robo Assault.”‚  Bored at that family party? Don’t want to listen to Grandma’s spiel on the whipper-snapping youth?‚  MySims Party looks to be a great remedy to any dull moment.

The DS version of MySims party looks to effectively incorporate the stylus and touch screen in 40 mini-games that aim simulate the console experience for the on-the-go Sims fan.‚  Some of the mini-games include digging up fossils in “Excavate-a-Saurus,” rocking out on guitar in “Air Guitar Star,” and a unique first person shooter experience in “Haunted Hunted.”‚  Most importantly Party allows for single game card multiplayer where friends can play against each other in Dream Festival and Mini Game mode.

MySims Party is available worldwide for $39.99 and $29.99 for Wii and DS respectively.
