The game will feature over 50 bikes from all the major bike manufacturers, which will be raced over the world famous 37.73-mile course. The course has been mapped accurately using data supplied by the Isle of Man government and data captured by the development team. Jester will also be working with promotional partners on the game including Britain's No1 motoring TV channel, Men and Motors.
As well as traditional racing, the game will also feature a mad Sunday mode. Mad Sunday is an exciting event with riders of all abilities coming from all corners of the world to have the chance of riding at high speeds over the Mountain circuit during TT race week. The player will not only have other bikers to worry about but will have to avoid high-speed traffic, thus creating even more excitement than the norm.
TT Superbikes will also have several multiplayer options including 2 player split screen and a sidecar mode of play.

"This is a very exciting project for Jester, the brand has worldwide recognition and we are getting all the major motor cycle manufacturers and sponsors involved. The game will truly immerse gamers and will require split second accuracy to succeed just like the real race!" commented Martin Kitney PR manger for Jester.
