Playstation 3 players will get the first crack on the new EA Sports sequel to Fight Night. The game Fight Night Champion is already under final finishing touches and will be shipping soon to your favorite game retailers in early 2011. EA Canada developers in Vancouver are working hard to deliver a cutting-edge boxing game that will further improve on the success of Fight Night Round 4. They hinted this new standalone Fight Night Champion game will deliver a new revolutionary single-player mode.
Brian Hayes, Gameplay Producer in-charge for Fight Night Champion said, “It’s something people won’t expect from an EA Sports game.” He, however, quickly followed that remark with “Our lips are sealed for the time-being about that” because PR people at EA Sports issued strict non-disclosure memos to them about premature announcement of game specifics. The other thing he confirmed is that Fight Night Champion will be released as a Full Retail Version and not an expansion to Fight Night 4.
Fight Night Champion will reputedly feature 60-70 of history’s most famous boxing champions. This sequel will also feature a revolutionary feature called “Full Spectrum Punch Control” which will allow players to rotate around the ring and throw the most devastating punch combinations. A new game physics will allow realistic punching and in-game combatants will show the corresponding damage from them. Please check the screen shot below, it’s the world’s Best Pound for Pound Boxer Champion Manny Pacquiao after 3 rounds of Fight Night Champion!
I’ve been a big fan of this game since Fight Night Round 2 and I’m already very excited for Fight Night Champion. EA Sports has already confirmed that the multi-player of the Playstation 3 version will support online match-ups. It’s always delicious to fantasize myself as another Manny Pacquiao knocking out taller and bigger guys with left hooks and right upper-cuts! Neither EA Canada or EA Sports has confirmed if this game will support the new Sony Playstation Move Controller for PS3 but I’m betting it will be.
