Woodland Hills, CA – September 21, 2011 – Global videogame publisher 505 Games and developer Kung Fu Factory today announced that their brutal, no-holds barred approach to the mixed martial arts genre, Supremacy MMA™, is now available in North America for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Supremacy MMA brings the brutality of unsanctioned, amateur and unlicensed MMA fighting to videogame fans that can follow the rise of several fighters and their individual stories as they work toward supremacy. Created in a fast-paced arcade style, the game gives players the opportunity to stylistically dispatch their opponents by choosing from a cadre of hardcore fighters, each with a unique MMA style. Fans master their abilities to perfectly execute fantastic fight sequences and become invincible in every match-up with a dizzying array of kicks, gravity defying moves and brutal finishing blows.
“Supremacy MMA delivers fast-and-furious gameplay and underground aesthetics over the slower simulation-style presentation found in traditional MMA games,” said Ian Howe, President of 505 Games, North America. “This unique style evokes a feeling of competitive compassion like no other game, featuring the hard-working underground MMA fighters and the dangers that they face every day, including broken bones and other serious injuries.”
Supremacy MMA is armed with arcade-like speed and real in-game fighters such as former UFC champ Jens Pulver and K1 kickboxing legend Jerome Le Banner, as well as the first female fighters in an MMA game, Felice Herrig and Michele Gutierrez.
“The Kung Fu Factory team is excited to offer a new level of strategy, fun fast combat and true-to-the-sport brutality in an MMA game,” said Ricci Rukavina, director at Kung Fu Factory.
Rated ‘M’ for Mature by the Entertainment Software Review Board (ESRB), Supremacy MMA will launch in Europe on September 23. For more information about Supremacy MMA, please visit the official website www.supremacymma.com and YouTube page and then follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
