You may not have heard of Home Entertainment Suppliers. It’s the exclusive distributor for Mad Catz, a company best known for its line of hardware peripherals. Now, HES is trying its hand at games publishing of the sporting variety with Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge, a new entry to the short list of rugby games available on the PC and consoles.
The game features career, competition, and tournament modes - and up to four-player online or local multiplayer. Players choose from 93 of the world’s Rugby teams, like the New Zealand All Blacks, and 1500 players from around the globe. According to developer Sidhe, the experience is completely customizable with 31 stadium locations with conditions and time of day options. It also includes a fully customizable player creator with options to change the player stats and features right down to the size of player’s ear lobes. For fans of team management, the game offers a 13 season career mode where player injuries, suspension, and other Rugby related mishaps will come into play.
Expect to see Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge on store shelves in the US in mid-October on PC, PS3, 360, and the PS Vita.
