Ever dreamed of diving into the ocean and swimming alongside sea creatures, but don't have the time money, or maybe you're just scared of sharks? Never fear! With the new Wii game, Endless Ocean: Blue World, you'll be going on a diving adventure right from your own living room.
The game, which will launch on February 22, 2010, and takes Nintendo's Endless Ocean series to a new level with new features and elements and hundreds of new marine animals and adventures.
You can play along with a "choose your own adventure" like story that involves Oceana, a girl who in on a mission to investigate the "Song of Dragons," just as her father, an ocean explorer, was before his death. Advance the story by exploring underwater environments.

With exotic locations and hundreds of new marine animals to encounter, the game’s adventures are as vast as the ocean itself.”

Go on a cooperative dive with a friend from another country and talk while you do so.
