Dodge Ball: World Chaos is a arcade sport game with adventure elements (somehow similar to Sega Soccer Slam and Mario Strikers Charged) that was in development by IRD1 in 2001 / 2002, for the Playstation 2. We would have been able to go around the city to talk with other characters between matches to learn more about the story and upgrade our team. A multiplayer option with 8 players support was planned for coop and VS mode. Sadly it seems that they were not able to find a publisher interested in the project and the game was then cancelled.
Thanks to Celine for the contribution!
