If you've been jonesing for more casual golf fun then you'll be happy to hear that Konami just announced 3D Ultra Minigolf Adventures 2
. Coming to XBLA and PSN early this year, the sequel will tighten up the gameplay and improve the graphics of the original hit. It will also feature 4-person multiplayer locally or online. This should keep golfers busy until Tiger makes his triumphant return, but I still think that title is a bit of a mouthful. I also have to wonder if it will be compatible with Natal and PS3 Move--it seems like a perfect fit.
