Exercise is a tricky thing, you might have to go outside in the cold or rain, or make your way all that way to the gym, and if you’re like me you’d probably prefer playing Video Games. Well, now these two things are not mutually exclusive, thanks to a new game called Aces of the Multiverse co-developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment Spain (SIE Spain) and XPLORA, the European leader in wearables for children. Now you can exercise whilst playing video games, and not a Wii Fit in sight.
Aces of the Multiverse is a local multiplayer game, where the players choose one of the multiverses species and competes in football matches. It’s a unique blend of strategy, sports and trading card collection as each player does their best to win using the players skill, whilst helped out by the species special abilities.
It’s a game that encourages you to get a little sweaty (not like that! Such dirty minds) as exercise is encouraged and rewarded. B y using the XPLORA smart watches, the activity of the player is registered and then given trading cards by way of reward. These cards will either be characters, items or events, and can either be rare, common or special.
There are three different species within Aces of the Multiverse, bears, mutants and aliens, and each of these has seven different characters and one Ace. Basically, a special character with their own moves. All of the 21 characters in the game have their own evolution and players will have to combine them in the most powerful ways to become a multiverse champion in any of the three arenas available.
“We are very excited about Aces of the Multiverse being released for PlayStation®4 and also about the fact that the game is being developed by a Spanish studio”, adds Jorge Huguet, marketing director of PlayStation Iberia. “We share with XPLORA a joint objective to offer innovative experiences for our consumers and this game is a great example of it. PlayStation fans are continuously looking for new ways of entertainment and the combination of the videogame and the technology brought by XPLORA will bring them an exciting experience for the families”.
