Play with the 2014 Superbike World Championship


Milan (Italy), Thursday 7 November 2013 – For more than 25 years the Superbike World Championship has brought the excitement and entertainment of motorcycle racing to fans all around the world. Through the years several videogame versions of the series were made, but never specifically for next-generation mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones.

The game, that was presented at during Milan’s International Motorcycle Exhibition (EICMA), will be available on iOS devices starting from next year on iOS devices and will feature all the 2014 riders and circuits of the 2014 season. The game will then be ported to other mobile operating systems in the following years with up-to-date versions.

“We are proud to be working together with such a powerful brand and for true and passionate fans” said Giovanni Bazzoni, Digital Tales’ CEO. “Our experience with a worldwide selling game like Ducati Challenge makes us confident in being able to create a product that fully matches the expectations of World Superbike Championship enthusiasts.”

“It’s a pleasure for us to be announcing the return of the World Superbike gaming experience in 2014 – said Marc Saurina, WSBK Commercial and Marketing Director. “What’s better than a videogame that enables you to live the experience of racing onboard your favourite Superbike, even the one you may own?”
