Indian developer JetSynthesys has cleared 700,000 pre-registrations for its upcoming cricket game Sachin Saga Cricket Champions.
The developer claims it is bearing in on one million pre-registered players, and will be the first company in India to surpass this milestone. The game is due to release on December 7th 2017.
Sachin Saga Cricket Champions is the official mobile game of cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. Players will relive memorable innings from the career of the "Master Blaster" using motion capture of Tendulkar's cricketing style.
"It is delightful to see the response we have received through the pre-registration from cricket lovers across the country," said Rajan Navani, Vice Chairman & Managing Director of JetSynthesys.
"We are upbeat about our proposition and are hoping that the cricketing universe likes the effort we have put in to bring dream to reality on a virtual platform."
Cricket is big business for mobile games in India. Nazara Games signed a three-year deal with Indian Premier League cricket team Royal Challengers Bangalore for RCB Star Cricket back in April 2017, and expected to grow an audience of millions around the game.
