‘Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational’ Adds Features and Multiplayer Modes

Update 1.04 for Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational is a big one, adding several multiplayer modes and features. Here’s the breakdown:

Private Tournaments

Before the update, players could only participate in Real Mode tournaments that were open to everyone. Now, you can create a private tournament and invite up to 7 friends. During these tournaments, you’ll be able to see your opponent’s ball after each shot, and between holes you can text chat with your friends on the scoreboard screen.

Stroke Mode (Head-to-Head)

This used to be Ad-Hoc only, but now you can play head-to-head against another person in stroke play. The golfer with the best score at the end of the round wins. And like the tournaments, you can trash talk your opponent between holes.

Match Mode (Head-to-Head)

Another Ad-Hoc only has been expanded. Just like Stroke Mode, this is a one-on-one mode, but instead of having the best round, you play until someone gets a 3UP status on the course (has three more hole victories than the opponent). Between hole heckling is here too.

Rank for Real Mode tournaments

Players will now be rated G4 (novice) to G0 (strong) depending on their online performance. Rank will be dynamic, with players being ranked according to their performance in official tournaments with 10 or more opponents. This is an easy way for beginners to find like-skilled opponents on the course. It also allows for experts to find other skilled players to sharpen their skills with.

Seasons to Daily Tournaments

In Daily Tournaments, there will only be one, more focused, game. This is a change from the usual 3 per day. A season is 7 days, with a variety of rankings each week, including weekly champion and a top 10.
