Developer pledges franchise support for another three years
Rare has told GamesIndustry.biz that consumers can expect more Viva Piñata in the future - with the developer promising to support the Xbox 360 franchise for at least another two or three years.
Microsoft has targeted Viva Piñata at the family audience and with a tie-in animated series hopes to capture a younger market not currently associated with its next-gen home console.
"We're pleased with the overall support that it's got and there's more to come within that franchise," said Lee Schuneman, head of production at Rare.
"We'd obviously like more sales, but we were happy with the game and critically it's gone down very well."
The game was released at the beginning of December but failed to break into the top forty in the UK All Formats charts.
