December 19, 2006: Selatra, the global distributor of mobile Java games, announced today the availability of an exciting, high quality racing game, Superbikes World Championship 2007. The game is officially licensed and supported by the Superbikes World Championship.
With stunning graphics and physics, players can choose from the finest international riders allowing them to experience the thrills and spills of bike racing at some of the world's top circuits, including Brands Hatch, Monza, San Marino and Silverstone.
Players can fine-tune their skills in practice mode, race a single circuit or the complete championship. In career mode players can earn money, upgrade bikes and switch teams in order to win races and points.
Launching the game, Sean Cronin, CEO of Selatra applauded the endeavours of ImpressionWare, the Italian-based developer of the game:
"This game has been so faithfully designed players can almost smell the burning rubber," said Cronin. "Our studio partner Impressionware has produced a sophisticated race engine with highly realistic effects and our customers will love it."
The full championship is run over 12 actual circuits from the Superbikes World Championship 2007 series and the game features all the leading teams, riders and bikes. It is available in seven different languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Czech and Russian. The international rollout of the game is planned for January 2007.
Luigi Fumero, MD of Impressionware, the studio engaged on the project, said his company has developed more than thirty games for Java and Mophun phones: "Superbikes World Championship is typical of our games, which are based on well-known brands and aimed at a wide range of devices."
All games are available on GSM and 3G networks. Selatra's full range of games is available on www.selatra.com
