MIDLOTHIAN, VA– April 14, 2010– Leading videogame publisher, SouthPeak Interactive Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SOPK) has today announced Blood Bowl® for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system is now shipping to retailers across North, Central and South America. A faithful adaptation of the legendary Games Workshop® tabletop game, Blood Bowl was released earlier this year on the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. Now, handheld game fans as well can tackle opponents in bloodthirsty Blood Bowl matches on the go.
Blood Bowl, a hard-hitting turn-based strategy game performed in the style of American football, keeps players on the edges of their seats with each play teetering on the roll of the dice. Players can utilize the PSP system’s ad-hoc multiplayer mode to crush their rivals until the grass turns red with ferocious custom teams or their choice of classic tabletop-inspired teams. For between-match practice, a huge array of single-player options are also available, including a full-fledged campaign to dominate the Blood Bowl world one cup at a time.
“We’re thrilled to release a portable offering in the Blood Bowl video game lineup.” said Richard Iggo, Head Coach of the SouthPeak Skavens.“It’s never a bad time for some Blood Bowl, and we’re always looking for excuses to practice the latest mighty blows with as few real-life catastrophic injuries as possible!”
Blood Bowl’s North American handheld introduction kicks-off now for the suggested retail price of $29.99 and is rated T for Teen by the ESRB. Visit the official team room and huddle with the Blood Bowl community at www.bloodbowl-game.com or visit www.southpeakgames.com for more information.
