JoWooD have signed arguably the world's greatest motor racing driver, Michael Schumacher, to headline a new PC game which is due out in June. It's not yet another Formula 1 sim though (like we need any more of those), but instead a karting game, going back to where Schumi and many other top drivers began their careers. Imaginatively titled Michael Schumacher Racing World Kart 2002, the game will apparently feature an "incredible combination of addictive and exhilarating gameplay and endorsement from .. a famous and successful driver". Or at least that's what JoWooD UK boss Vip Patel told us. We should know soon whether the game can live up to the billing or if it's destined for a transfer to Minardi next season.
