Iridium Runners Confirmed For February 22nd Release
Monday 14th January...SouthPeak Games is set to start the new year with the February launch of Iridium Runners, the first of seven titles planned for release in 2008. Iridium Runners, SouthPeak’s inventive on-foot arcade racing title for PlayStation®2, will be on the shelves from February 22nd at a mid-range price point.
Developed by Italian game studio Playstos and set in the year 2050, Iridium Runners places players into the shoes of runners taking place in the Iridium Championship, a series of athletic on-foot races sponsored by futuristic mega-corporations.

Melanie Mroz, Executive Vice President, SouthPeak Games said:“Iridium Runners is our first release for 2008, which promises to be an amazing year for us. We’ve got titles across eight formats lined up for the rest of the year and it’s great to be starting with a distinctive, instantly-accessible racing title like Iridium Runners. At its mid-range price point, we’re sure its charm and inventive design will appeal to any PlayStation®2 gamer looking for a bit of futuristic racing action.”
Iridium Runners will be released on February 22nd 2008.
