The deal will see music from the forthcoming album "The Hurricane" featured throughout the football simulation title of X2's handheld football on the iPhone and iPod touch.
"I think it's a great opportunity to introduce gamers to independent music that they may not have heard before," says Toph Taylor, singer and producer for Trouble Over Tokyo. "As a result, the game has real indie-appeal that other, larger developers' games do not. Also, for Trouble Over Tokyo fans, it's a great chance to hear previews of an album, which won't be released until summer 2010, which I believe is a first for a video game; so I really think we're doing something very new and exciting."
X2 Football 2010 will be available from the App Store in May.
