Now this is a cool addition to Minna no Golf play style. Technically it is exactly the same, just more visually appealing. I was going to write about this earlier but forgot. Anyway… in Minna no Golf 5 there will be a new shot system called Honkaku Shot [ 本格ショット] which pretty much means Real Shot. Well I will explain how it works…

Shot Menu

First up is the menu, before you start the game you will be given this menu. You can choose between the Original shot system and the new Honkaku shot system. I recommend giving it a try, it looks interesting…

Upon starting up, you can easily see there is a slight difference than the usual power bar impact interface. The starting trigger is still the same, to begin press Circle.

Once you’ve started, the character will lift the club up ready to hit the ball. While the character lifts up the club press Circle again when you want to set your power. Here you can see the power being set at 100%.

Get ready, it’s Power Recovery all over again… Ok only if you’ve played Minna no Golf Portable, you will notice this is slightly similar to recovering your power shots. The character will begin to swing the club towards the ball, your job is to time it so you can press Circle on the moment of impact.

Perfecting Impact may seem abit more work this time, but once you’re used to it I think it would be alot easier than the usual 3 click system. You’ll notice how this is still a 3 click system, just the play style is different. A better explaination can be found on the Official Site, but it’s in Japanese of course. That’s it for now… Enjoy Perfect Impacting!

Hello Everyone,

Sorry for all the downtime of the site and also not updating the news. If you can view this site you’ve obviously been guided here by me. I’ve decided to change the backend of the site to WordPress, which will power the site from now on. The improvements to this will be that I can manage the site alot easier and it will not be associated with my other sites thus keeping this one alive if the other ever goes down. I will also be providing all the information I know from my playing experiences of the game to help other players to improve. These will come as time allows.

My other aim is to bring more players from different regions to this site. Kind of like bridging the international gap between players. Bilingual Minna no Golf Community Site was one of the original goals as Japanese players are quite good at this game. As time goes by there maybe more languages increased. [Provided there are people who will help translate.]
