Warhawk expansion dated

Konami has lined up a pair of Hudson's Wii games for release in Europe in the first half of 2008 - Fishing Master and Sports Island.

Fishing Master (announced earlier this year) does roughly what it says on the tackle-box - allowing you to angle for over 100 species of fish using a control system based on the Wii Remote and Nunchuk.

The Wiimote is used to cast the line, aiming for silhouettes of fish in the game's lakes, and then the Nunchuk reels in your catch by rotating the analogue stick - providing you can stop the fish breaking away as it thrashes on the line.

That should be with us in Q1 2008 according to Konami, and you can check out screenshots in our Fishing Master gallery.

Sports Island, meanwhile, offers a number of "Adidas-endorsed" versions beach volleyball, football, badminton, basketball, curling, figure skating, archery, moto cross, snowboarding and kart racing.

All of these use the Wiimote and Nunchuk, too, with the Wiimote used to hit the ball in volleyball, for instance, and twisted to manoeuvre down the slopes in snowboarding.

Sports Island offers four-player support for each event, and will be released in Q2 2008.
Sony has been in touch to say that Warhawk expansion pack Operation Omega Dawn will be released on PlayStation Network next Thursday, 20th December.

The pack will cost GBP 3.99. It's set to cost USD 7.99 in North America.

Omega Dawn brings with it five new night-time maps, good for all the usual game-types, and a KT-424 Combat Dropship which can transport seven soldiers as well as a vehicle and pilot.

The full Warhawk - released on PSN in August and on Blu-ray in September - is a multiplayer third-person shooter where you can use planes, tanks, jeeps and your feet to kill each other.
