67w ago - Following up on the North American date, today Sony Worldwide Studios Producer Jeremy Ray has confirmed a European release date for Sports Champions 2 as well.
Below are the details, to quote: Hello, this is Senior Producer Jeremy Ray with a message all the way from San Diego Studio to let you all know that Sports Champions 2 will be available from 31st October 2012 across the PAL region.
In about two short months you will be able to play the much anticipated sequel to the first Sports Champions, introducing Skiing, Boxing, Tennis, Golf, Bowling and the new Archery event.
Since we are getting so close I'd like to take this opportunity to give a little update on the game. Right now the team is primarily focused on squashing bugs and adding some last minute polish. The finish line is in sight and we are very excited to finally get Sports Champions 2 into living rooms all around the world.
Once done, we hope to be able to take a quick breather before getting back at it again with some post-release support. I hope to be able to give some more information about that after launch.
Here's a reminder of some of the great content that will be waiting for you in Sports Champions 2. Single player Cup Play and Free Play are back again with lots of little improvements that we think make them even better.
The Avatar Creator feature has turned out so much better than we envisioned it. I'm sure you'll have a blast designing your character, selecting from a range of customisation options. The creativity we've seen with the QA team has been inspiring, and we're incredibly excited to see how much further the fans take it.
The new Party Play mode is really coming together as well. You'll be able to set up tournaments for up to four players with your favourite events and rules. It has been a tonne of effort, but we think it was worth it and hope you agree. Special kudos goes out to Zindagi Games for having the chops to bring this vision to reality.
Thank you, and continue to stay tuned for more Sports Champions 2 news.
