Pele does Wii Balance Board game

Academy Of Champions not your usual footy game

Ubisoft signed the rights to feature Pele in an arcade football game that sees you join an academy where your coach is Pele.


The title will be compatible with the Balance Board and Wii Motion Plus. Ubisoft promises over-the-top gameplay, entertaining fantastical environments and innovative challenges. It also says there'll be an "engaging, interactive experience for kids and their families" under all that.

"Football is a sport that is universally celebrated by all citizens of the world," said actual Pele. "Working with Ubisoft to continue to promote the sport has been a wonderful experience. It is a thrill to continue to inspire a new generation of fans through an entertainment medium that introduces them to the exciting world of football."
