World Squash Federation Launches First 3D Simulation PC Video Game

Squash enthusiasts will now have the chance of enjoying the sport they love

in the comfort of their own homes following the launch of WSF Squash, the

official squash simulation video game of the World Squash Federation.

Using the most modern software and hardware, the game is a realistic

representation of the sport with great tactical aspects - and all shots can

be played, including drives, corkscrews, boasts and more. Players can also

play online matches against each other, or play at iconic locations - and an

offline tournament mode allows users the chance to organise virtual

tournaments during real events.

It is easy to connect wireless controllers to the game and link to a big

screen, so that squash clubs can host a virtual event. Details of this are

available from the game's dedicated website - where a

trailer, screenshots, and more, can also be seen.

There are 12 real top squash players in the game. Users can choose between

four different top tournaments at iconic locations - either selecting their

favourite player or creating their own player, choosing equipment, skin

colour, hair colour, posture, playing style, etc.

Following four years of development, "WSF Squash" will be launched at the

beginning of November.

"For me, Squash is a much faster, aggressive, raw and also responsive game

than, for example, tennis," said Team6 Games CEO Ronnie Nelis. "For WSF

Squash, gamers will not only need to have much faster reflexes than for any

other sports game, but they will also even have to think about their

strategy during the game. All this made a very good reason for us to make a

game that nobody dared to make before."

WSF President Mr N Ramachandran commented: "Our hope, of course, is that in

endorsing this game we will see a significant number of newcomers to squash

trying it - who may then feel that they would like to try the real thing on

court, and boost grass-roots numbers as a result."

The game can be pre-ordered with 35% discount as an introduction offer only

till the 31st of October for 1st November distribution.

There are further plans to develop the game for Nintendo Wii and xBox.
