WSBK Racing Game Announced for Mobile Devices
Italian software developer Digital Tales is producing the first fully-licensed World Superbike Championship video game for mobile devices.
The WSBK mobile game for tablet and smartphone devices was introduced at the 2013 EICMA show, with racers such as Pata Honda‘s Michel Fabrizio and two-time defending Superstock 1000 Champion Sylvain Barrier demonstrating the game for EICMA visitors.
Digital Tales previously produced a MotoGP game in 2010 and the Ducati Challenge game for iOS devices. The new WSBK game will be available for iOS devices (i.e. iPhones, iPods and iPads) for the 2014 season, with plans to produce versions for other mobile operating systems in later years.
“Our experience with a worldwide selling game like Ducati Challenge makes us confident in being able to create a product that fully matches the expectations of World Superbike Championship enthusiasts,” says Giovanni Bazzoni, chief executive officer of Digital Tales.
