Mo-capoeira game coming Q4 2008

Justin McElroy

When we see that a developer we're not familiar with is making a game for the "Wii, PS2, PSP and DS," our shovelware alarms usually start to go off around Joystiq HQ. But when we saw this morning that developer Twelve Interactive was using motion capture for their game Martial Arts: Capoeira, we were ... well, not excited exactly. Can one be skeptically intrigued? Even if the game does end up sucking, it's nice to know that they're putting in the effort of hiring actual capoeira artists.

Capoeira, as we all know without checking Wikipedia, is a Brazillian martial art blending fighting and dance. After watching the video of the mo-cap session we've placed after the jump, it looks more like fighting with cartwheels. But come to think of it, that still sounds better than Pit Fighter. Consider us cautiously, sort of interested.
