Kung Fu Funk™ To Get Everyone Kung Fu Fighting and Dancing on the Wii™

WiiWare™ Action Party Game Coming to Nintendo Consoles in the USA on the 3rd May

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand– April 28, 2010– Stickmen Studios, a growing studio focused on casual games for the leading consoles and PC, today announced the release date for its next original title, Kung Fu Funk™ for WiiWare™. Kung Fu Funk takes players back to when martial arts had style, and colors were either vibrant or beige. Players enter the world of big hair and flared pants in this comedy Kung Fu movie styled game.

Kung Fu Funk™ is an off the wall 1970's Kung Fu movie themed party game. Players can challenge up to three friends to see who has what it takes to become the ultimate Kung Fu master. There are many trials to overcome in three zany game modes. True to any Kung Fu movie, players start with learning the Zen arts, a chilled out mode to get everyone familiar with the controls. Once skills are waxed the Kung Fu training movie montage begins, which consists of insane mini-games including the plate smash and chopstick fly catch. The ultimate test of skills occurs in the the disco dojo showdown when players enter the Kung Fu disco dojo as the instructor.

“Kung Fu Funk is great for parties and anyone who enjoys comedy action and Kung Fu movies,” said Wil McLellan, CEO of Stickmen Studios.“The Wii Remote and Nunchuk are the perfect interfaces for players to experience the fun of being a Kung Fu fighter with the funk.”

Hidden behind the funky colors and fun game play of Kung Fu Funk, Stickmen incorporated movement science so that the game adapts to the players range of movement and is fun to play for the whole family. Kung Fu Funk is an essential party game to add to your collection; no matter what you do you’ll finish with funky flying colors. Pricing for the game is 500 Wii points.

Kung Fu Funk features:

• 1970’s styled funky Kung Fu mini-games

• The original 1970’s hit song“Kung Fu Fighting”.
