NCAA Football 11, Dragon Quest IX, and The Cages Previews

Jul 08, 2010

Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! Kidzworld has all the latest games to keep watch for. This week, we preview NCAA Football 11, Dragon Quest IX, and The Cages!

NCAA Football 11

Really? College football time already? That's right, and this edition ups the action yet again, EA Sports-style. Among the new features this year are new team-specific entrances, helmet numbers (any Crimson Tide fans out there?), on-field referees, a ton new mascots, and improved recruiting in Dynasty Mode. While Tim Tebow may have moved on to the Denver Broncos, he gets to grace this year's cover with maybe a little too much Florida Gator Glory. So, the question remains: Are you ready for some football?

Dragon Quest IX

You and three friends can get ready to quest epically with the new Dragon Quest for the DS! Create your characters and venture forth into a new Dragon Quest world, with quests and treasure and foes to vanquish, all in a giant adventure to help those possessed by the Goddess Fruit. This is the first in the Dragon Quest series of role-playing games to get rid of irritating "random encounter" battles, so now you can see your enemies coming on the main map. And more quests are coming via free download later on, so the amount of gameplay may never end!

The Cages Pro-Style Batting Practice

The Cages Batting Practice lets you turn your Wiimote into a virtual bat and swing for the fences. But this game isn't just lobbin' the ball in there for you to have your best shot, no. It simulates professional pitches from the slider and curveball to the straight-up fastball and 16 other pitches. Once you've gotten a hang of those pitches, try to beat your friends in a home run challenge or several other competitive mini-games. Then once you're done, you can even take a look at how many calories you've burned with all that swinging with counters inside the game!
