Capcom takes We Love Golf, Miis online

wlgzw.jpgCapcom stroked a sweet little birdie when it announced last Wednesday the addition of an online multiplayer component to its upcoming exclusive Wii golfer, We Love Golf.

According to the announcement, We Love Golf will allow players to test their golf slice against random competitors in World Play Mode or match up with friends in Friend Play games, taking full advantage of the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Capcom also revealed that We Love Golf will be the first sports game on Wii to enable the use of Mii characters in online gameplay. As announced prior, players can also dress their We Love Golf character with classic outfits as worn by characters in Capcom franchises such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Dark Stalkers and more.

Developed by Camelot Software, the North American version of We Love Golf has received several tweaks since the lackluster reception of its Japanese counterpart last December. In addition to the online mode, which was not available in the Japanese version, Capcom recently allowed fans to vote on two additional mascot costume inclusions in an effort to increase the title’s Western appeal.

We Love Golf has an unspecified 2008 North American release date.
