Copyright 2002 Eidos Interactive Press Release

[ July 10th 2002 ]

Gamecube owners rejoice! Hot on the heels of the announcement of the first Eidos game to hit Nintendo’s top new machine - TimeSplitters 2 - comes the news that a second title is on the way and it could prove to be the perfect alternative to the all action, adrenaline fuelled blast of time hopping. A leisurely stroll around the golf course, taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the great outdoors is about as far removed as you can get from TimeSplitters, but the multiplayer mode will be just as competitive when there’s you and three friends vying for the 100,000 skins prize on the final hole!

Ace Golf will combine the realistic elements of the game and while adding a large comical element that will make it easy to pick up and play. The aim is to make it appeal to the novice gamers with the light hearted style while still offering enough for the golf fan with the attention to detail. It will be one of the first golf titles for Gamecube and will offer a wide range of playing styles. The standard tournament mode will be playable in stroke and matchplay and there will be a shorter course for those wanting a more ‘pitch and putt’ style game.

There will be six other courses to master, ranging from the standard lush fairways and harsh rough of the English course to the unusual and un-trodden territory or the cactus-filled rock desert course. The programmers are adding a host of mini-games like a Nearest the Pin competition that will be played on a nine-hole, par three course. 14 characters will be selectable in total and one of six different caddies will be on hand to offer advice and pointers during your round. It’s scheduled for release later this year and we’ll have much more information in the coming months.
