360 game to make the switch to Nintendo format

Another UK studio has taken to Wii development, with Rockstar Games' Leeds team working on a conversion of its San Diego sister studio's Table Tennis game.

The game is due out later this year and adds Wiimote functionality to the title's table tennis league gameplay.

"Ever since we released Table Tennis, fans have been asking us to create a Wii version," said Sam Houser, founder and executive producer of Rockstar Games. "By bringing Table Tennis to the Wii and utilizing the motion-sensitive Wii Remote, a new audience can now experience a game that is beautifully designed and impossible to put down."

Previously, Rockstar Leeds developed the PSP and PS2 'Stories' spin-offs of GTA III and GTA Vice City.
