“It is beyond doubt that the work that we have undertaken will be of great benefit to our existing Fantastic League virtual games portfolio as well as our branded virtual football game VStriker. By constantly improving our product, we are demonstrating our commitment to ensuring that our virtual games remain at the forefront of the virtual gaming space.”

Earlier this month, VsoftCo teamed up with Striker creator Pete Nash to launch VStriker. The game is powered by real-time football animation technology, and features motion capture technology sourced from professional footballers at Sheffield United.
