Champion Jockey immerses players into the heart of horse racing and will take advantage of the latest motions sensor controls on the PlayStation 3. Depicting a collection of real world inspired races, players will experience what it feels like to be a jockey using intuitive gameplay. Longtime fans will be able to get back into the saddle with Champion Jockey, the spiritual successor of the G1 Jockey and Gallop Racer series.
From the track to the stables, players will be in for some serious thoroughbred horse racing action in Champion Jockey. On the track players will be thrown into the saddle to drive their horse, jump fences, and use a whip to simulate a real life horse race! In the stables, players will be tasked with the thrilling challenge of breeding and raising their very own race horse. After customizing their jockey, players must hone their skills by acquainting themselves with their horses' unique rhythm, potential, stamina and preferred racing style to excel on the course.
Race on a total of 19 different tracks inspired by real world horse racing tracks including but not limited to turf and dirt tracks and steeplechases from all over the world. Serious and casual horse racing fans can compete together in an accessible "Fun Race Mode". Toning down the simulation levels of authenticity, this mode will maximize the fun of using motion controls to race. Offline Champion Jockey supports one to two players, and allows for up to four jockeys online!
