Blood Bowl Hitting North American Retail in January

The Xbox 360 edition of Blood Bowl will stomp onto North American retail shelves in January 2010 alongside the PC original, publisher SouthPeak Games has announced.

Cyanide's video game adaptation of the violent American football-inspired Warhammer sports board game by Games Workshop is currently available on PC worldwide through digital distribution and received European PC and 360 retail releases earlier in the year.

SouthPeak also revealed that Blood Bowl's PSP edition will arrive in North America some time in Spring 2010 but made no mention of the DS version Europe was cursed with.

      It's a great game, but the single player can get repetitive and the AI tends to be pretty stupid at any difficulty level.

      Online league play is the most fun, but the league admin options are a bit limited and there aren't any options for league admins to settle disputes or reset games if needed.

        Oh and real time mode is a joke. If you don't like turn-based games, stay away.

      Tons of fun, especially if you are a fan of the original board game version.
      It can also be frustrating as hell as all my players emphasize brutality over finesse and they fumble the ball A LOT. Still I find it a lot more fun to win the game by attrition, and by the second half of most games I can cakewalk the score back to a tie or a win because mostly all of the other team is dead or incapacitated.
