Viva Pinata Playable Demo on Xbox Live Marketplace

Viva Pinata

After hearing nothing but good things about Viva Piñata, the demo recently hit Xbox Live – and it’s a doozy.

Name: Viva Piñata Playable Demo
Price: Free
Availability: U.S.
Dash Details: Want to see what happens when a Mousemallow meets a Syrupent? Want to try your hand at raising your own Sparrowmint? Now is your chance to download the demo for Viva Piñata, the critically acclaimed, award-winning adventure from Rare and Microsoft Game Studios.
Size: 1.0 GB (approx)

Edit: I just heard from the VP team that they are working on versions of this demo for Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the U.K.

I’ll admit firsthand that I hadn’t played this game once since I heard of it until this demo hit Live. I’ll also admit that a very large number of grown men have been telling me how awesome this game is, but I’d never decided to look any deeper than the cover. Boy was I wrong about that.

After playing this demo for no less than 45 minutes, I may be a convert. Once you get beyond the cute and cuddly exterior, this game seems to be pretty deep and entertaining – and I figured this out from a demo.

Chances are good that i’ll be out getting this game soon, and then i’ll be fully sucked into it’s cuddly nature – and try to get my girlfriend hooked in, too…
