Update on the Martial Arts: Capoeira Video Game

Remember the new capoeira video game I mentioned a while ago?  Well apparently it hasn’t died an untimely death (yet) and things seem to be progressing admirably.

It seems they are using motion capture with actual capoeiristas to generate the animation, which is a good thing.

The group they are working with is Grupo de Capoeira SOLUNA in Rome.  Their site is in Italian, which I can’t read, but I figured I’d give you the link anyway.  Even if I can’t read anything, it sure looks really cool!

The game actually seems promising, but we’ll see when it’s finally released (though, not sure if I’ll get a chance to have a go at it, because I don’t own a Wii, DS or a PSP, my PS2 is broken and I don’t care to fix it or replace it, and I hate playing fighters on the PC).

As always, I will keep you updated with any of the latest stories and news on this upcoming capoeira video game.
