Blood Bowl set for September

The video game tie-in of popular Warhammer board game Blood Bowl will arrive in the UK this September.

Published by Focus Home Interactive and developed by Cyanide Games, Blood Bowl is a violent mix of Warhammer fantasy and American Football, and will be released on Xbox 360, PC, PSP and Nintendo DS.

The title arrived in Europe last week, securing fourth place in France’s all formats charts and breaking into the Top Five in Germany’s PC charts.

Focus Home Interactive COO Cdric Lagarrigue said: We are still in discussion with a number of publishing partners in the UK and will be in a position to announce full details over the next few weeks.”

I think it’s fair to say that, even with the popular Games Workshop license behind it, there were some people who felt that Blood Bowl may struggle in the current climate. The excellent sales that have been achieved in France, Germany and Spain speak for themselves and have laid those doubts firmly to rest. Blood Bowl is now all set to repeat that success in the UK, its spiritual birthplace.”
