Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge out Q3

It's no Haka scandal.

Fully fledged rugger game Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge will launch for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 during the third quarter of 2011. A version for PlayStation Vita will launch at a later date.

Who's Jonah "Burger" Lomu? Only one of the most recognisable rugby chaps in the world. He's not making the game though - that falls to New Zealand outfit Sidhe, creators of regular Kiwi video game franchise NRL Rugby League.

Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge contains Competition and multi-year Career modes, plus offline and online multiplayer.

The game also holds the official licences for 93 teams and 31 stadia, as well as a multitude of leagues including the French league Top 14 and the Celtic RaboDirect PRO12.

Rugby fans can rejoice at this most rare of moments - not one but two games featuring your favourite egg-shaped ball are coming this year.

The other is Rugby World Cup 2011, which lands on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 a little sooner - 26th August in the UK. HB Studios, which created Rugby '08 for EA Sports, is at the helm.
