Customizable. ôViva Pi˝ataö allows playersĺ imaginations to run wild by providing them with expansive freedom and choice:
Your world. Your choice of contents will determine which of the pi˝ata species are attracted to your world, since they all have individual requirements. Sowing grass, digging ponds, planting flowers and growing trees all affect which of the unique pi˝atas you will see. Itĺs not just about plants, either; there is a whole range of ornaments and structures that could be decisive. Your reward for creating an appealing paradise is to watch the pi˝atas visit and eventually reside there, which is where the fun really starts.
Your pi˝atas. Once you have resident pi˝atas, you can begin to personalize your loyal community. Pi˝atas can be individually named and given their own personally designed tag to put on display as a declaration of their home turf. And the customization doesnĺt end there. You can make the colorful critters more distinctive by customizing them with all kinds of costumes and accessories.
Social. The ôViva Pi˝ataö community is a rewarding place to be, whether you remain within the boundaries of your own world or venture out into the real world or your friendĺs pi˝ata world via Xbox Live, the first and only global, unified online console games service.
Interact with the pi˝atas. Getting to know and understand the personalities and requirements of your pi˝atas is essential if you want them to stay happy and thrive. Make your world their ideal paradise, and theyĺll want to raise a family and expand your community.
Interact with the characters. Players decide how much help they want from the local guides, shopkeepers and work force. Go it alone or get them involved Ś you choose.
