At last, we are going to tell you about the Roller Champions! It is a roller-derby-inspired game that will give you the very vibes of Alita: The Battle Angel. Developed by Ubisoft, Roller Champions will be having two groups comprised of three players. Both groups will be racing around the track and striving to keep possession of a ball.
