In 2005 EA’s ‘Fight Night Round 3’ made jaws around the world drop. Its sumptuous visuals still stand up to scrutiny even today. This, along with a comprehensive boxing engine, has become the Fight Night franchise’s trademark.
Coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2011, Fight Night Champion will apparently;
“Break the mold of what is expected in a single-player sports game. Players will be introduced to an entirely new way to step between the ropes and experience the drama, emotion, excitement and tragedy of world championship boxing.”
The game is set to feature between sixty and sixty-five boxers on the roster and players will implement the new “Full Spectrum Punch Control” which EA Sports claims to be “the most realistic punching system ever seen” whilst being “the most user-friendly title in the franchise’s history.”
