Rugby Challenge Vita Release Date

A release date for the Playstation Vita version of Rugby Challenge has been announced by Tru Blu Entertainment. The rugby union game will be released on June 27 for Europe, UK, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The game will feature full licensed teams at both club and national level, including the All Blacks (New Zealand, winners of the 2011 World Cup) and Wallabies (Australia, third place at 2011 World Cup), who are considered the top two sides of rugby union today.

The game will feature multiple gameplay modes, online 1v1 matches and will utilise the touch screen and touch pad for some points in the rugby match, such as lineouts and conversions. Commentary will come from Grant Nisbett and former All Blacks’ halfback Justin Marshall, both with experience behind the mic. As for the different offline modes, players can expect an exhibition mode, tournament mode and multi-year career mode, involving club and national teams.

Just like the console version, the game will be released under different names depending on which country you live in. For those in Australia, the game will be named Wallabies Rugby Challenge. In New Zealand, it will be called Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge, named after the legendary All Black. For the rest of the release regions, it will be simple called Rugby Challenge.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some DarkspawnI started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come).In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers.If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West.Oh and anime is awesome!
