‘All Star Cheer Squad’ will be “the first-ever cheerleading videogame” ever created and will be coming to the Wii and DS, THQ announced.
The game will allow players to spend a year in the life of a cheerleader, doing all those dog-gone amazing things that cheerleaders do, like cheers, routines and chatting up the football (of the American inclination) hunks.
The game has been choreographed by Tony G, the guy responsible for Kirsten Dunst’s moves in the equivalent ‘Bring It On’ movie. I was going to say smash hit movie, but I don’t think it really was. In fact, the only thing going for it was Kirsten Dunst in a cheerleading outfit.
The Wii version will use the balance board that comes with ‘Wii Fit’ and won’t just be a hand job. You’ll need to use your whole body. The hands will be required for pom poms, and you’ll be expected to perform real “cheer and dance moves.”
The DS version will be adventure driven and won’t have you jumping around like a maniac, but you’ll be competing a against a rival cheerleading camp.
I know what you’re thinking. But at the risk of tainting my already not so great reputation, cheerleading is not easy. If it’s anything like the real McCoy, then you’re in for a heck of a workout. So just bear that in mind when the game is released in the autumn.
In the meantime, get your fitness up and give me an “G”, give me an “A”…
