Indian test captain Virat Kohli has joined hands with leading mobile game publishers, Nazara to come up with a mobile game named Virat Cricket challenge.
The game will see Virat as a playable character and it will be designed in 2-D graphics. Kohli, in the game, will field the trademark blue jersey.
“Virat Cricket Challenge is exciting and special. I get to play as me which is fun. At home, I love playing games on the console and while on tour, I enjoy playing games on the mobile during the down time. So when the idea was suggested to me, I got really intrigued. As they say men will be men and we love everything about technology and gaming,” Virat said during a statement.
Nazara games earlier had some success with a game called Rounders, released in 2009 and they will be looking to attract some eyes with the new game as well.
“Virat is very popular character among the cricket lovers and he has got a huge fan following, we wish to take this love on to the gaming platform and to millions of Indian gamers. A game on Virat perfectly fits into our Make in India, Made for India portfolio,” Manish Agarwal, the CEO of Nazara Games said.
