Release Date: 05/09/2008

The original team behind "Viva Pinata" has reunited to bring gamers "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise," the newest Pinata adventure that invites gamers to return to magical Pinata Island. Unfortunately, not all is well on the island, as Professor Pester along with his gang of Ruffians have wiped out Pinata Central's computer records, which poses a threat to parties everywhere. To help Pinata Central, players must gradually rebuild the computer database by sending Pinatas at full candiosity to parties all around the world. While thwarting Professor Pester's evil plot, players still build and maintain Pinata gardens - using their creativity and imagination to attract, trap, protect, train and manage more than 100 different Pinata species.

Available exclusively on Xbox 360, "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise" reinvigorates a colorful and engaging gaming experience on the Xbox 360< platform. Now with full cooperative and online gameplay modes, the "Viva Pinata" franchise opens its doors even wider with a new game that provides hours of fun for gamers of all ages, fans of the animated series and animal lovers alike.

Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise Features:

  • Social. The world of Pinata Island is an inviting and rewarding place to be. Family members and friend now can share in the joy of creating a garden by simply plugging in an extra controller. The second player has access to all tools, actions and activities, but he or she also can collect magic by helping. Player two can spend magic by tinkering items, healing a sick Pinata or filling a Pinata candiosity meter. It's a new way to play.
  • Customisable. "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise" allows players' imaginations to run wild by providing them with expansive freedom and choice.
  • Your garden. "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise" also offers a vast level of customisation within your main garden. Now, along with planting grass, trees and flowers, and digging ponds and lakes, players can place sand and snow in their garden to make exotic species of Pinata feel more at home. Players also can choose to enhance their garden with themed object packs — make your garden into a space center, a pirate cove or a haunted graveyard. Buy objects to change the weather, or new toys for your Pinata to play with. You have total freedom to create any kind of paradise you want!
  • Your Pinatas. Thirty-two new species of Pinata can run, crawl, fly and swim into your garden in "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise." Large, small, fierce and cute, the new Pinatas will join all your favourites for thriving activity throughout your garden. Among these new species are sour Pinatas that will infiltrate and wreak havoc in the garden. In "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise," players can choose to either tame sours, or feed them candy to keep them sweet.
  • Pinata Vision. A never-before-seen feature called Pinata Vision allows players to plug in an Xbox LIVE Vision Camera and interact with the game through the use of printed cards that feature a unique barcode. With Pinata Vision, gamers can simply flash a Pinata card up to the Vision camera, and the content will drop directly into the game.
  • Accessible. "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise" reinvigorates the franchise with additional game modes and features that make it even more accessible to players of all ages and skill levels.
  • Just for Fun Mode. Designed for beginner players, kids and those just looking to explore Pinata Island, this mode allows players to jump into the garden and interact with the unique Pinata world. In this mode the difficulty has been turned down and the fun has been turned up. Sour Pinatas stay away, resident Pinatas remain healthy, weeds don't plague your garden and you have an infinite chocolate coin bank account, allowing you to turn your garden into a veritable utopia of colorful creatures.
  • Standard Mode. Presenting a challenge for experienced Pinata gardeners and dedicated gamers, the Standard gameplay mode provides a more tricky option, where players must keep a watchful eye on their garden. Sour Pinatas, feuding species, weeds, illness and limited money call for you to exercise problem solving and creativity to build and maintain an environment where Pinatas can flourish and grow.
  • Player Guide System. Replacing the traditional tutorial, the optional Player Guide System directs players through a series of loose goals to help them master the fundamental aspects of "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise."
  • Show Off. Using the new photo mode in "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise," you can snap, print and upload pictures of your unique garden or customised Pinatas showing them off to your friends. You also can photograph your Pinata and turn it into a Pinata card, share it with your friends so they scan it and put it into their own garden using the Xbox LIVE Vision Camera.
  • Pinata and character interaction. All your residents are now capable of performing dazzling tricks, which you can teach them using the new trick stick tool. Watch as Pinatas play together, perch on each other and interact in new ways to make them more appealing.
  • Spontaneous. "Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise" is a constantly changing world where anything can and does happen. Rivalries, injuries, illness and fights — if you turn your back, who knows what your Pinatas will do?
  • It's happening outside. Pester knows where your garden is, and he's got a few nasty tricks up his sleeve to make Pinata life difficult. Foil his plans by sending your Pinata around the world to save parties everywhere. Also, you must deal with new, untamed sour Pinatas with bad attitudes and more troublesome Ruffians who will try to spoil your creation.
  • It's happening inside. Pester will try to block Pinatas from ever reaching your garden, but you can break the blockades and teach him who is in charge on Pinata Island. However, don't underestimate Pester - he's likely to make some personal appearances to attempt to put you in your place.
