SANTA MONICA, CA – October 2, 2009 – Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today announced the October 27 release of Mountain Sports, six winter games developed only for Wii.  Developed by premier Austrian developer Sproing, Mountain Sports lets gamers of all ages slip, slide and shred their way to victory using the Wii Balance Board™ accessory and/or classic Wii Remote™ controls.

Mountain Sports includes a variety of thrilling high-impact outdoor activities: skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing/tubing, bobsledding, curling and the biathlon. All of the sports except curling give players the option to hop on the Wii Balance Board™ for intuitive fun, carving up the slopes as they strive to become the Winter Sports Festival champion. Sit on the board to navigate the slippery bobsled course, or turn the board sideways and go for big air on the slopestyle snowboarding event!  Players can also choose to use the Wii Remote to outmaneuver and blast past the competition, using full-body motion. The game is both intuitive and fun, and with four-player support, everyone can get in on the frosty action.

Mountain Sports gives players full-length winter sports, not just a collection of mini-games,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing.  “This game is active, competitive family fun that parents can encourage and participate in.”
