Handball 16 is a real game you can play


But you probably don’t want to

Every Sunday, Sony posts a lineup of new releases coming to PlayStation systems that week. It’s something I check religiously, hoping to discover a gem hidden amongst the big blockbusters.

No gems this week, but Bigben Interactive, publisher of fine products likeI Love My Pony, I Love My Dogs, I Love My Cats, I Love my Horse, andFlap Flap,is putting out something called Handball 16.

On its Steam page, Bigben Interactive is callingHandball 16the first handball simulation,” which (at best) is a curious statement, considering it previously publishedIHF Handball Challenge 14.

Perhaps the company is looking to rebrand after IHF Handball Challenge 14, advertised as “the best handball simulation,” elicited mostly negative responses from players and critics. Well, one critic.

Regardless, Handball 16 apparently allows players to “use all the real handball moves and tactics: the spin shot, hip shot, fake, dodge, jump shot” and “play with all 68 teams from the three biggest European leagues, with all the players, kits and official statistics of the 2015-2016 season.”

Handball 16 is already available on Xbox One, Windows PC, and Xbox 360. It will launch digitally for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita in North America this Tuesday, December 1.
