The look and feel of the game, the teams, and the skaters were all developed in direct collaboration with the players.
The basic rules of roller derby are stretched to their limits with wild powerups and trick moves. It's WFTDA-style derby, with real skaters, and real teams - and a lot of extra fun thrown in.
This game is a major step forward in the history of modern roller derby. The WFTDA now joins the ranks of the world's major sporting properties with its own licensed video game franchise.
Jam City Rollergirls will be available via the WiiWare™ service for the Nintendo Wii™ console. Fans who own a Wii can download the game directly onto their console using the Wii Shop Channel. The game costs 1000 Wii Points™ ($10.00 USD).
The Wii Shop Channel is an online shop for the Wii video game console that allows users to download WiiWare games.
