In an epic event sure to test our hemisphere’s bandwidth as never before, trillions of rollergirls are expected to be hooking up their Nintendo Wii™ consoles to the internet today, and downloading Earth’s first-ever roller derby game of consequence, Jam City Rollergirls, created by plucky Wisconsin game developers Frozen Codebase and available as of right now on Nintendo’s WiiWare™ service.
Priced at 1000 Nintendo Points™, the estimated quadrillions of Nintendo Points™ changing hands today as a result of Jam City’s long-awaited release could have unforeseen effects on global currency markets, especially those of the Western Hemisphere, home to the game’s five real-life Women’s Flat Track Derby Association teams: New York’s Gotham Girls Roller Derby, Seattle’s Rat City Rollergirls, Austin’s Texecutioners, Milwaukee’s Brewcity Bruisers, and Madison’s Mad Rollin’ Dolls. This arcade sports game features fast-skating, hard-hitting, women’s roller derby action — in venues both logical and outrageous – and combines straight-up derby with powerups, hazards, jumps, and other keystones of arcadey goodness.
Play a full derby season against worthy opponents for the championship, or play against a friend head-to-head – but however you play it, play it ‘til your thumbs are sore!
