Endless Ocean is an underwater exploration through the pristine waters of fictional Manoa Lai Island. From the moment players experience their first dive, they’re introduced to a magnificent world of sun-pierced water, vibrant color, and flourishing sea life. With no time limits, point systems or possibility of failure, it’s a pick-up-and-play game for the entire family to enjoy. Intuitive controls and the game’s encouraging “explore at your own pace” approach create a momentary retreat. After a short tutorial and practice swim through the Lagoon, players begin receiving exploration and collection assignments from The Marianas Foundation. Divers interact with underwater creatures to unlock encyclopedia-style descriptors - educating them on its species and habits. The longer players navigate through the map, the more sea life they’ll unlock. Over 230 sea creatures are available in a fully unlocked game. As players become more familiar with their surroundings, they gain the ability to take pictures and salvage rare treasures from the ocean floor. Experienced divers can also go night diving and even lead guided Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection tours. Successful tours will unlock new outfits and gear. Underwater journeys are further complimented by the enchanting music of international best-selling artist Hayley Westenra. Players can elect to use the included music, or they can play their own music from an MP3. Insert the MP3 player’s SD card in to the Wii slot for a custom diving experience. In Endless Ocean, the possibilities of underwater exploration are, well, endless. Beginner and experienced snorkelers and scuba divers alike will find a deep sea gaming environment unlike any other, while families just looking for a fun yet relaxing experience with their Wiis now have the smooth sounds and aquatic sights of mother nature to look forward to!
