Every gamer knows that Mad Catz has long been a go-to source for quality game controllers, and that its expanding line of flight controls, fight sticks, and gaming mice are rapidly setting standards, but did you know that they recently went into the game business? Really!
Mad Catz is both publishing and developing games from its own studio, and its freshman title on the publishing side has been confirmed: Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge.
The hardware -- and now game -- maker announced today that it will publish and distribute Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge throughout North America exclusively for the Xbox 360, and they currently anticipate that the game will begin shipping in September of this year.
"We are very excited to bring this popular rugby franchise to North America," says Darren Richardson, the President and CEO of Mad Catz Interactive. "We are committed to building our software publishing and distribution business and strongly believe that this world class sporting title will be met with a warm reception by passionate gamers across the country."
Developed by New Zealand game studio Sidhe, Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge features 93 teams and 31 stadia including official team and competition licenses for the All Blacks, the Qantas Wallabies, the USA Eagles, Tri Nations, Bledisloe Cup, Super Rugby teams, Aviva Premiership Rugby, TOP 14 Orange, RaboDirect PRO12, ITM Cup, and Ranfurly Shield. Featuring a wealth of single player modes and online play via the Xbox LIVE, Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge offers gamers an unrivaled Xbox 360 rugby experience.
