Planet Minigolf Coming Exclusively to PSN

Zsolt Kigyossy's Avatar Posted by Managing Director, Zen Studios

Grab your clubs and get ready to tee off! I am thrilled to announce that ZEN Studios is applying the same battle-tested ball physics engine from the acclaimed ZEN Pinball to bring you the PlayStation Network exclusive Planet Minigolf. What does that mean for you? Expect an exciting new standard in golf action combining stunning 3D graphics and smart play with true-to-life physics, including precisely calculated ball dynamics.

Planet Minigolf logo

Aspiring to be the best all-around golf experience, we’ve built in a deep single-player campaign that transports players to several exhilarating courses around the world and comes loaded with six customizable characters, remarkable cartoon-style visuals and a daunting 144 unique holes packed with a variety of hazards and interactive objects.

In addition to the single player campaign, we have also included a full suite of multiplayer options – from a local hotseat mode to regular weekly tournaments and worldwide competitions where players can battle it out to see whose nation reigns supreme.

That’s all for now, but we’ll have more exciting news hitting over the next couple of weeks – including a more in depth look at the games online and customizable features.

“Ball physics” may need to become my new catchphrase :P

Seriously, enjoyed the pinball and haven’t played minigolf in ages, so I think you can count on a sale here.

Sounds cool, but would like to see a video…

How do the trophies look for this game?

betahoven said:

October 14th, 12:16 pm

I think this was previously called Alien Sports Minigolf right? I heard about it somewhere ages ago, not sure where now. Thought it must have been canned.

backbreaker65 said:

Huge question if you’re answering. Will you patch this game to use the playstation motion wand controller when its released? If you do so, you can bet your bottom dollar you have a plus one sale.

JetSetFuture said:

October 14th, 12:26 pm

Looking forward to this, especially if it’s designed with the same high quality as your pinball games.

redtailman said:

October 14th, 12:28 pm

how much is this going to cost?

emjayx said:

October 14th, 12:30 pm

How many players for multi-player offline can play?

Gorvi said:

October 14th, 12:31 pm

That just sounds great. Is this going to be a Q4 release or will it be next year?

station3fever said:

October 14th, 12:31 pm

darn you hit my golf soft spot :)

oor1can said:

October 14th, 12:35 pm

Awesome Cant wait! Love some Zen Pinball! If this has the same level of polish and visuals I’m all over it day one!!!!

ROLO_ONFIRE said:

mister1337 said:

October 14th, 12:41 pm

Lame. How about dissidia, that isn’t lame you know whatelse it isn’t? On PSN.

MakasuUS said:

October 14th, 12:42 pm

Interesting… a screenshot would be nice :)

jqtaxpayer said:

I’ve been waiting for a good mini-golf game for a long time, but disappointment after disappointment has imparted me with the knowledge that I shouldn’t get my hopes up.

Still, with ZEN Studios behind the wheel… but no, no, no… learn from history, JQ.

KSPRAYDAD said:

October 14th, 12:53 pm

Yep…same question as 15….any idea if you’ll be able to incorporate the Sony ‘Sphere’ tech?

I was hoping that HSG would bring thier minigolf over but this’ll be here first and may get my $.

acerazer1 said:

October 14th, 12:58 pm

Sounds awesome!

At one time my classmates nominated me as “most likely to become a professional mini golfer.”

OldKai said:

October 14th, 12:59 pm

Could be good. We’ll see. Maybe I’ll ask #10 for pics/videos since he already know it looks stupid.

tylerdurden30 said:

October 14th, 1:01 pm

Will this be available for the PSP also? I would love to play me some mini golf.

DTXSFC said:

October 14th, 1:11 pm

Can’t wait for some screen shots and video on this title.

DaWolf619 said:

October 14th, 1:16 pm

Date and Price?

starBlinky01 said:

October 14th, 1:25 pm

I love mini golf man. I wish you would have included pictures or a video :( :( :( :(

TheBrain76 said:

October 14th, 1:30 pm

Looking forward to this! Zen pinball wasn’t my cup of tea, but was still a great pinball game. If you can put a minigolf game that’s that solid this should be a Day 1 purchase for me.

LUGIEZ said:

October 14th, 1:33 pm

yes.. maybe this will help me out of my tiger woods 10 depression.

TailsTheCat said:

October 14th, 1:43 pm

Mini-golf is not Pinball.

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

October 14th, 1:44 pm

yeah a video wouldve bin GREAT but a due date would’ve been FANTASTIC! ;p

kdiep said:

October 14th, 2:02 pm

Just curious, did you guys experiment with the motion sensing (Sixaxis) at all? It would sound like it could work but I’m no developer.

kdiep said:

October 14th, 2:03 pm

Just curious, did you guys experiment with the SIXAXIS controls at all? Or maybe even the new motion controller.

I could see it working on a minigolf game.

mrGramps said:

October 14th, 2:04 pm

Sounds good. I’ll be looking forward to trying it out

mrGramps said:

October 14th, 2:05 pm

Sounds good. I’ll be looking forward to trying it out.

NevilleTheGame said:

October 14th, 2:05 pm

what about custom soundtracks, create a player and 4 player split screen play?

perrandy said:

October 14th, 2:30 pm

ok this sounds interesting but i would want to know how much will it cost? and also how the game is going to look like? hope to see some screens soon

MixPix72 said:

October 14th, 2:42 pm

timed? or a true exclusive?

GuerrillaWar said:

October 14th, 2:42 pm

I’d like a Hot Shots Golf on PSN.

vegasbosko said:

October 14th, 2:46 pm

This is awesome news. I’ve been waiting for a cool mini golf game.

Metellica505 said:

October 14th, 2:47 pm

Nioce i’ve been waiting my whole life for a psn mini golf game

Android66 said:

October 14th, 3:19 pm

Cool! I’m hopeful, as there hasn’t been a decent console mini-golf game IMO. Hot Shots Golf doesn’t have crazy hole designs (anthill, windmill, loop-de-loops, brightly colored carpets, rubber mats, concrete barriers, etc.). That Xbox Live mini-golf– 3D Ultra mini-gold– had awful course designs and tried to be too realistic with their fantasy elements.

Can you add the option to listen to our own music tracks off the hard drive– but played through a scratchy speaker just like the ones mini-golf courses used to have?

DrBingogh said:

October 14th, 3:25 pm

I’m curious, looks good.

TheManick said:

October 14th, 3:28 pm

I’m a sucker for mini golf, will be getting this

Xoonaka said:

October 14th, 3:49 pm

I support Minigolf games, and I have hopes this one is good. Too many of them turn out horrible, though, so I may have to reserve judgment.

Customizable characters doesn’t seem like a huge draw to me, I’d rather have a course editor and more interactive environments. And of course, the true staple of any good minigolf (including Real life) is that every hole allows for a possible hole in one (no matter the difficulty of said shot).

Anyway, looking forward to seeing more.
