Upcoming Android and iOS cricket game Real Cricket 16 has a release date. You can download it via Google Play on March 5 with a version for iOS users soon after. This isn't all. Nautilus Mobile let slip a host of new features you can expect when the game hits.
Some of these include quality of life updates such as a revamped user interface, player profiles, improved leaderboards, and enhanced stat tracking. However, there are a few that have piqued our curiosity.
For one, you'll be able to choose new bowling and batting actions. What this means is, if you're tired of the same animations the game has, you can select and download fresh ones to liven up things. It's a simple yet welcome addition that's bound to make the proceedings a whole lot more interesting.

In addition to this, you'll be able to partake in historical scenarios, allowing you to play through a sliver of a match instead of the entire game. And while Nautilus is mum on what real-life cricketing encounters would inspire this mode, we're betting on a healthy dose of matches from all time classics and current memory.
Furthermore, major domestic tournaments will be present in-game. These would include leagues from Australia, England, New Zealand, South Africa, and West Indies to name a few. Needless to say, the Indian Domestic 50 over League is announced but will be coming as a future update, as well ensuring there's something for fans from every cricketing nation.
Looking for something that's less taxing on your reflexes? Nautilus is throwing in a quiz mode as well. From the looks of things, Real Cricket 16 is shaping up to be one of the more comprehensive depictions of the beautiful game that isn't football, with something for just about anyone who is a fan of the sport.
What do you plan on doing first when Real Cricket 16 hits on March 5? Let us know via the comments.
