Rugby Nations 09 coming soon!

Hi all,

Nigel from Distinctive here to announce our latest iPhone game 'Rugby Nations 09'. Obviously, this will appeal mainly outside of the US but I'd welcome all comments on the game.

For those of you who don't know, Distinctive have a long track record of developing sports games such as FIFA, Brian Lara Cricket, Michael Vaughan Cricket on mobile phones and most recently Anytime Pool on iPhone.

Rugby Nations 09 is a full 15 on 15 Rugby Union game featuring 10 national teams from around the World. Release date for the game has been set to be around mid-June at a price of £2.99/€3.99

We initially planned to release the game earlier in the year but we've spent a lot more time polishing the game and adding more features to make it great value for money.

Headline features include:
  • Full 15 players per team
  • 10 nations teams.
  • Excellent 3D graphics.
  • Three different cup competitions.
  • Unique control system using a mixture of accelerometer and touchscreen controls.
  • Swipe controls to score conversions.

Looks good. It reminds me of that EA Rugby game with no year (i.e - 09). This should go down well with us Brits

I'm pretty sure it will have Scotland.
England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, New Zealand, Austrailia, South Africa, Italy, France - those are all the most well know countries with rugby teams and that only makes up 9 out of the 10 teams which could included in the game.

Hey LBG,

You're exactly right. With the tenth team being Argentina. Glad to know people are looking forward to it!
