THQ has announced a release date for Blood Bowl, the videogame based on Games Workshop's fantasy football series.
The game was due to be published by Focus Home Interactive, but it looks like that's no longer the plan. According to THQ's website Blood Bowl is coming to PC, PSP and DS on 18th September in the UK. An Xbox 360 version will "follow at a later date".
Blood Bowl will let you build teams from armies of Orcs, Wood Elves, Humans, Dwarves and Hybrid Cat-Dolphins. Maybe not the last one. As you may have guessed there's a fair bit of gore involved, but it's also all about tactics and strategy.
Videos, screenshots and a hands-on preview can be found over on the gamepage.
